The 352 acre Shirtail Creek estate vineyard in Monterey creates an ideal climate for growing Chardonnay, yielding wines with the signature lemon-lime and a touch of apple flavors of Monterey, tantalizing tropical notes and crisp acidity with just a bit of toasty oak keep our Chardonnay in balance.
The Hess Collection portfolio is comprised of Hess Collection Mount Veeder Estate wines, Hess Napa Valley wines and Hess Select wines. Hess Collection wines from their Mount Veeder estate vineyards are an expression of the unique mountain climate they come from and are distinguished for their complexity, structure and elegance. Hess Napa Valley wines come from single vineyard sites, each of which was handpicked for its superior climate and location. All of their estate vineyards are sustainably farmed in accordance with their founder, Donald Hess’ philosophy: “nurture the land, return what you take.” Hess Select wines are benchmark wines from their respective regions in both quality and price and are designed for immediate enjoyment.
