Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web
A stone winery restored in a fusion of traditional and modern styles is home to The Hess Collection Winery, featuring mostly large installations along with several paintings, sculptures, and mixed media pieces. Swiss entrepreneur Donald Hess bought these vineyards in Napa Valley in 1978. Walk through the landscaped gardens, underneath wisteria vines, and among contemporary sculptures. While admiring the art, take the opportunity to sip a glass of fine cabernet sauvignon or chardonnay, and nibble on cheeses and truffles served with specialty nuts and seasonal fruit.

  • This was a beautiful place to visit. The environment is very beautiful and is surrounded by a very valuable historical architecture. Had staff who spoke Spanish, a large tent and art exhibition. Wine tasting I think it was expensive for the wines that we deglutamos. It was not my favorite wine of the area but he did well. The place has difficult access and much curve but is part of the adventure. It is worth visiting it. Something different from the rest of what there is in the area and with much history.

  • This was one of the best tours we did in Napa. Cesar was super knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. The art collection was pretty cool. The wine and food pairing was great. Highly recommend. 
  • I love their wine! They also have a very cool art museum - definitely worth adding it to your list if you are planning a CA wine country visit! I went to one of their exclusive dinners couple years ago that they held at their own museum. It was a fun filled night with delicious food & wine and music!
  • It would easy to describe this place with a simple "wow" but that would just not do it justice. The drive up to Hess in mid-fall is amazingly beautiful. When arriving on the property the vibrancy of the fall color is inspiring, Lovely experience as a whole, worth the trip.
  • Went there with some friends for a quick Sat getaway and don't regret it. Short drive from SF and we got great service that day
  • nice place, wine was poor, started very good, but lost too fast the taste. 35$ to taste 5 wines ( in total 0,25 l) - the man who gave me the wine was not at all helpfull; not really interested - can not recommend this wine
  • Great wine. Beautiful art collection.
