The passion of the incredible people who worked to develop the impeccable wines and beautiful properties of Hess Collection and Beringer has allowed Pure Luxury to offer this exclusive package. A pioneer by nature, Donald Hess was determined to defy convention and pursue winemaking at elevation, so in 1978, he established The Hess Collection Winery on the site of one of the region’s oldest wineries. He took the opportunity to marry his two creative passions in life—wine and art—and he established an art gallery within the winery as a means of sharing his private art collection. Donald Hess and his wife, Ursula, met through their shared love of art, and today, Ursula’s daughter, Sabrina, and her husband, Tim, continue the family legacy of sharing wine and art and the family’s ongoing commitment to making both accessible to all. At Beringer, they have been living their passion for over 141 years.
Beringer is known for establishing many ‘firsts’ as leaders in the wine industry. They were one of the first gravity-fed facilities, and among the first to operate using hand-dug caves and cellars. Beringer was also first to give public tours in 1934, starting a Napa Valley hospitality tradition. Beringer was the first and only winery to have both a red and a white wine named #1 Wine of the Year by Wine Spectator Magazine.
Price per person for a private group of up to 4 people is $160 and includes 5 hours of private chauffeured transportation, plus all tastings at each Estate. This exclusive experience is available only on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Price per person does not include lunch.
