Fodor's Review

About 9 miles northwest of Napa, up a winding road ascending Mt. Veeder, this winery is a delightful discovery. The limestone structure, rustic from the outside but modern and airy within, contains Swiss owner Donald Hess's art collection, including large-scale works by contemporary artists such as Andy Goldsworthy, Anselm Kiefer, and Robert Rauschenberg. Cabernet Sauvignon is a major strength, and the 19 Block Cuvée, Mt. Veeder, a Cabernet blend, shows off the Malbec

and other estate varietals. Food-wine pairings include one with chocolates that go well with the Mount Veeder cabernet sauvignon.
