The winery was established in 2002 on sixty acres in the northern end of the Stags Leap District by Canadian, Cliff Lede. With a heavy focus on farming, the team at Cliff Lede Vineyards blends old-fashioned techniques with cutting-edge technology. The gravity-flow winery, built in 2005, features truncated tanks commissioned using a design borrowed from Château Latour. It is one of the only facilities in Napa to operate a Pellenc optical sorting machine, sorting grapes based upon quality settings established at the start of harvest.
The winery produces Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The flagship, Poetry Cabernet Sauvignon, is crafted from the steep hillside portion of the estate. Guests visiting the tasting room will also have the opportunity to taste selections from our sister winery, FEL Wines, grown in the Anderson Valley and Sonoma Coast.

Incredible unique but beautiful atmosphere. Excellent wines and Freud my staff. The Claret is fantastic and the rock blocks blends promises distinctive flavors.
Great winery to visit. Good Cabernet and if you like classic rock, you will enjoy the experience. If you can splurge, the backstage is something not to be missed.
