A brief history
Hestan’s founder, Stanley Cheng, would state with a mischievous twinkle in his eye anytime someone asked him about the meaning behind the Hestan name. Helen before Stanley— Hestan.
Hestan Vineyards is a picturesque estate located on Napa Valley’s remote eastern slopes. The vineyard is named for owners Helen and Stanley Cheng, whose passion for fine wines and love for Napa Valley’s beauty and charm led them to purchase the property - a former cattle ranch - in 1996. They immediately prepared to plant grapes, adding small blocks over the years to take advantage of the site’s myriad of exposure and well-drained soils. In keeping with the Chengs’ commitment to land stewardship, both the vineyard and organic estate gardens are sustainably farmed and 100% solar powered.
