Your Host: The Hess Collection Winery
It takes vision to look 30 years into the future and knows that high on Mount Veeder would be home to some of Napa Valley’s best Cabernet Sauvignon. Mount Veeder Vineyards have the ideal combination of soils and microclimates to produce wine grapes of distinctive character. The Hess Collection winery is part of a historic site where wine was first produced in the 1860s, in a native stone building hewn by masons in 1903. The original stone structure is now joined by The Hess Art Collection, a world-class showcase of contemporary art. Considered by ARTnews Magazine to be one of the top 200 in the world.
