  • Great experience at the Hess Collection. My wife and I did the ATV Tour with the cheese pairing. Amazing views within the vineyards and great wine. HIGHLY recommend doing the ATV Tour with Gustavo. He was very knowledgeable about the wine and the history of the vineyard.
  • Had a really awesome experience here. Being out of town and unfamiliar with the area - some places felt super pretentious but we felt right at home here. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and we had a fabulous tour. Will definitely be stopping back again one day soon.
  • We had the best time tasting wine and enjoying the art after. Austin was a great host, knowledgeable and fun. This place is a gem and we highly recommend a visit!
  • The best winery I visited in Napa Valley. They are kind and really expert about their wines and the winery region. Considering the expensive cost of wine in the US, their wines are worth the price and the tasting is absolutely cheap in comparison to other winery’s offer and their wine are the only one I really appreciate. Take time to visit the art collection.
  • A terrific place to stop and enjoy wine tasting. Staff is knowledgeable and entertaining. Learned a little of the area's history. No one pushed us on club membership. We did buy two bottles of wine. Just received them this week.
