Limited Capacity seats available

Join your colleagues for a fun-filled day of art and wine in world-renowned Napa Valley. Start your tour at the Hess Collection with a tour of the Hess Art Collection. Donald Hess began collecting art in 1966. Today, His collecting style is a personal endeavor driven by a passion rather that monitory investment or current trends. He develops a close dialogue with an artist to better understand what drives him or her to create and he carefully limits his focus as a collector to 20 living artists whose work he faithfully supports long term. As is evident by the caliber of the collection, he collects with the uncanny ability to acquire works by lesser known artists who often go on to become well known and respected in their disciplines. His typical commitment to an artist spans decades and various stages of his career.
After the museum visit enjoy a picnic lunch and wine tasting at the Hess Wineries. Then it is off to wine tastings at 2-3 additional wineries. Register for this tour by March 31, and help us select the wineries visited based on your wine preferences. This tour is exclusive to AIC only, but will be co-managed by Platypus Wine Tours, a 2013 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence winner. Your experienced Platypus guide will enhance your knowledge of Napa Valley wines. No matter if you are a wine connoisseur or merely divide wine into two groups – red and white – you will enjoy this day tour. Consider it a pre or post conference treat. The tour cost in all inclusive and includes the tasting fees and lunch. If you see a public wine tasting tour offered for less, it most likely does not include tasting fees or lunch.
