The Hess Collection Winery & Art Museum, Napa

4.5
#1 of 8 in Museums in Napa Valley
A stone winery restored in a fusion of traditional and modern styles is home to The Hess Collection Winery & Art Museum, 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.

  • A really welcome and nice winery in Napa Valley. Known for its mount veeder Cabernet Sauvignon. But I personally prefer the Chardonnay!
  • Great experience and amazing art and wine. Only wish weather was bit less warmer. 101 degree is not the right weather to take vineyard tour
  • I used to come here all the time. I decided to no longer come here due to the culture change. The sales reps only care about selling their wines more so than just simply allowing their guests to enjoy their time wine tasting and enjoying the scenery. It was never like this. I now only go to domaine carneros, or robert mandavi winery or other wineries. They ask you for all your personal information which I dont like giving out and again all they care about are their sales. Here's some advice. Stop putting so much pressure on your guests. If they want to buy a bottle, they will buy one or two. If you continue to provide this type of culture- you will lose business.
  • Top class wines, friendly staff, world class gallery.
  • Fantastic scenery and museum. History of vineyards established by the Christian Brothers in 1936 is awesome. Yes. The same religious group that actually made Christian Brothers brandy back in the day for us old timers. Truly enjoyed the wine and knowledgeable staff. One of the best cabernet and blends in Napa. Had to take some home. Thanks Gustavo!
