Napa Valley is home to some of the most amazing vineyards and wines! One vineyard in particular we would like to spotlight is the Hess Collection Vineyard. Donald Hess was determined to pursue winemaking at elevation in the Napa Valley. His legacy of luxury wine making has lived on for over 40 years with this vineyard’s commitment to honor the land through sustainable farming.
The Hess Collection Vineyard believes that quality wine starts with the vineyard. Their goal is to make balanced, elegant wines that will only improve over time. There are a few vineyards that fall under the Hess Collection, which include Allomi Vineyard, Iron Coral Vineyard, Veeder Hills Vineyard, and Veeder Summit Vineyard. The Hess Collection also includes the Lions Head Collection, both with amazing wines to taste and shop from.
There are so many incredible tasting options, but we thought we would highlight one of the most fun experiences you could have while wine tasting…which is an ATV tour! Explore over 1,000 acres of mountainside vineyard property in a luxury ATV with a tour guide to show you all the panoramic views.
After your ATV adventure, you can indulge in some food and wine pairings that are thoughtfully crafted and paired to perfection. With your choice of 3 wines from the vineyard, the food pairings are made from the best local ingredients by their winery executive chef. Another option available to guests who want just a smaller snack is the wine and cheese pairing that also features seasonal fruits and nuts.
Some information to know before you go is that this ATV tour lasts 2 hours, and is available year-round weather permitting. You need to make reservations in advance so check out their website to book your tour. Pricing is $185 per person for the wine and cheese pairing tour, and $245 per person for the wine and food pairing tour.
