The Hess Collection Winery & Art Museum, Napa

4.5
#1 of 11 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.

  • Great winery with a unique atmosphere. I was here for the final stop of a Place tour and had a lot of fun. The wine tasting took place both outside and in the cellar. We started outside, walked part of the grounds and learned some of the history of the winery. From there we headed to the cellar to finish the tasting. In addition to the great wines, the main building and grounds are both home to a fairly large art collection which you can view.
  • Best wine and great staff. Interesting art collection too. Worth the drive
  • The drive up to Hess is beautiful, the grounds are very unique, the art gallery is one of a kind. If you have never made the drive it is worth while.
  • This place is amazing, the grounds, the artwork and the wine. All supurb.
  • A really welcome and nice winery in Napa Valley. Known for its mount veeder Cabernet Sauvignon. But I personally prefer the Chardonnay!
