The Hess Collection Visitor's Center & The Hess Art Collection
We are currently open by appointment only while we make repairs to our visitors center which sustained limited damage due to August 24th's 6.1 earthquake. Wine tastings however, are being offered in some lovely areas around our scenic property. Some areas of our facility may be inaccessible during your visit. You may make a reservation, taste some wine and have a visit with us. We have quite a story to tell! Reservations can be made here or by calling 707.255.1144.
Our museum and tasting room is under construction May - August, to repair damage caused by the Napa Earthquake. While wine tasting will remain uninterrupted, parts of the art collection will be in storage at various times until July. We will continue to maintain an elevated experience, as much as possible during construction and will keep portions of the art collection open for viewing.
Please call our Visitor Center at (707)255-1144 to inquire about the status of the exhibit, as well as wine tours and tasting.
The winery and art museum are open daily for visits, tours and tastings. You are invited to make a reservation to taste four current release wines, many available only at the winery, for $20 per person. Groups are asked to contact the winery’s guest relations staff at 707.255.1144 x226, or email the Visitors Center.
