The Hess Collection Winery & Art Museum, Napa

4.5
#1 of 12 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.

  • Couldn’t have picked a better winery for my trip to Napa. Super friendly staff and no pressure to join the wine club. Free museum. Gustavo was an amazing guide and knew his wines. Definitely recommend!
