Trip Planner: USA / California / Napa Valley / Napa / Hess Persson Estates
A stone winery restored in a fusion of traditional and modern styles is home to Hess Persson Estates, featuring mostly large installations along with several paintings, sculptures, and mixed media pieces. Swiss entrepreneur Donald Hess bought these vineyards in Napa Valley in 1978. Walk through the landscaped gardens, underneath wisteria vines, and among contemporary sculptures. While admiring the art, take the opportunity to sip a glass of fine cabernet sauvignon or chardonnay, and nibble on cheeses and truffles served with specialty nuts and seasonal fruit.

ZERO stars!!! We drove for miles and it turned out they were fully booked today 8/6/22, even when there were only 4 cars in the parking lot. We asked if we could at least look around but were turned..... more

Well as most people would come here for their awesome wine, we came for their great art! The concept of combining wine tasting and art galleries is just brilliant. They have so many important art pieces and the space itself it’s breathtaking. It’s better to have reservations.
Hands down the most beautiful winery we visited. From the personalized wine and cheese experience, to the eclectic art, to the fantastic scenery, it surpassed a five star rating. Our host Cindy was knowledgeable, personable, and a joy to spend time with. There is no doubt we will visit here again next time we are in the area.
We went here for my 50th birthday and it was a perfect day. We took the ATV tour with Edgar and he was an amazing host and wine educator. We stopped at several places around the Vineyard and it was beautiful and peaceful. Sitting at a picnic bench, drinking a delicious rose, and looking down on the fields, I don’t think I had been that relaxed in years. The next stop was a cheese plate paired with amazing wines in their gorgeous art gallery. Edgar was funny and charming. Last, we went down to the main tasting area and tried a few more vintages. We ended up buying a case to ship home. I definitely recommend!
First - wines will not disappoint and the grounds are amazing. This was our first time in Napa and our preference is to taste, listen, learn and spend some time alone enjoying the wine. Our tasting did not include this. Our host was with us the entire time. He was knowledgeable and personable - this isn’t about him. It’s just about “how” things were done. If you want good wine at a great (a bit off the path) location do it. Just know that if your preference is to enjoy time on your own - that didn’t happen.
Beautiful property, and fabulous art collection. Steve our host was very knowledgeable and genuinely created a wonderful experience. Really enjoyed the visit!
