Hestan is always seeking ways to support and nurture chefs- they are at the very foundation of our product development process and guide us as we push the limits of the culinary world. We also realize we are custodians of the very land we grow our grapes from, and aim to always protect our beautiful environment that great food and great wine flourish from.

Hestan at the Culinary Institute of America

The Hestan Teaching Kitchen made its spectacular debut in February 2018 and serves as the Culinary Institute’s first participatory teaching kitchen. The 9,000 square-foot culinary playground includes six Hestan Commercial suites in exclusive colors and offers a chance for serious foodies and industry professionals alike to cook alongside CIA chefs with the same revolutionary culinary power and performance found in America’s most acclaimed restaurant kitchens. Stanley also serves on the board of trustees at the CIA.

Stewards of the Land

At Hestan Vineyards, the organic estate is sustainably farmed and 100% solar powered. Hestan also participates in Premiere Napa Valley and the Napa Valley Auction, which donates to non-profits within the Napa Valley region. Hestan Vineyards also donates wines and manpower to silent auctions such as Hands Across the Valley, which raises funds for Napa’s food bank.

Hestan x Feeding America

For each unit of the Hestan Cue burner and pan sold, Hestan Smart Cooking donates a weeks worth of meals to a family in need through our partnership with Feeding America.

The Thomas Keller Golf Classic
Hestan is proud to participate in the annual Thomas Keller Golf Classic to Benefit The Culinary Institute of America, a fun-filled Napa, CA event to raise essential scholarship funds for CIA students. Hestan and its partners have attended and contributed to this event for the last four consecutive years.
