Wines We're Drinking Now
The lion has been the emblem of the Hess Family for nine generations. It has come to symbolize the bold and persevering nature of founder Donald Hess and our winery home on Mount Veeder.
Rich and creamy upon entry with notes of lemon curd, crème brulee and candied lemon peel, this wine presents beautiful layers of stone fruit.
Bright flavors of honeydew melon and Asian pear that’s crisp and pleasantly tart, a wonderful pairing for richly sauced seafood.
Each holiday season Hess Collection winemaker Dave Guffy crafts a limited release cuvée meant for sharing with friends and family and dressed in a collectible edition bottle. Enjoy the inaugural vintage available in 750ml.
A beautiful and bold blend that highlights how Malbec can wrap itself seductively around Cabernet and create a luscious and complete wine.
Aromas of citrus and notes of fresh apricot...
Located near the summit of Mount Veeder, our Small Block Malbec from the Veeder Summit Vineyard is supple and sensuous, with flavors of blackberries and dark fruits along with a touch of jam and peppery spice that allows the wine to linger.
An extraordinary offering, this late harvest wine is an opulent treat produced only once prior...
For those who enjoy an indulgence, our Sparkling Wine pairs perfectly with fresh oysters and caviar. Or try a soft-nutty cheese, like a locally sourced goat cheese.
This bold wine will stand well alongside braised or grilled meats like lamb, pork or duck dressed with sweet onions and earthy accents from mushrooms, eggplant and wild fennel.
