The Hess Collection Napa Valley Estate Chardonnay


Winemaker Dave Guffy tastes The Hess Collection's Estate Grown Napa Valley Chardonnay.

The San Pablo Bay brings morning fog and gentle breezes to our Su’skol Estate Vineyard in the Napa Valley, located in one of the coolest growing regions within Napa. We named our vineyard “Su’skol” after the native Su’skol people who used the area as a meeting place and valued the nearby sources of fish and game. This vineyard is the site of an ancient seabed, with shallow, sandy soils perfect for nurturing Chardonnay grapes. The 175-acre vineyard is planted exclusively to Chardonnay with nine unique clones, giving our winemaker Dave Guffy a veritable spice rack to choose from to add layers of complex flavors to the wine.
