"Montereys combination of moderate climate and marine influences from the Pacific Ocean keep the grapes on an even keel, able to develop fully ripe flavors that tend to show some lemon and lime zest, a touch of ripe apple and tropical aromas and flavors."

As the first of the Hess Family Wine Estates wineries, The Hess Collection Winery was founded by Donald Hess over a quarter century ago. True to his vision of what a New World wine should be, Mr. Hess established his winery on the volcanic slopes of Mount Veeder in the Napa Valley and defined a whole new approach to winemaking.
Along with its mountain vineyards, the winery has won acclaim for its other estate vineyards in the northeast and southern ends of the Napa Valley and has been recognised for its successful relationships with family-owned growers who represent some of the finest appellations in California.
The Hess Collection Winery produces three tiers of wines and has distinguished itself as a premium producer of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
