Hess Family Wine Estate

Quiet leadership in sustainable practices dates back more than 30 years when Donald Hess first came to the rugged hillsides of Mount Veeder in Napa Valley, and directed that Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards be crafted while winegrowers respect and nurture the land by “returning what we take.”

An unparalleled passion and curiosity combines with a pioneering spirit that stretches over five generations of the Hess family since 1844, and on into the next generation of family leadership appointed by Founder Donald Hess. Today, Hess Family Wine Estates is recognized as one of the premier family-owned and family-led companies in the world of wine.
