Cliff Lede Vineyards was established in 2002 by Canadian born Bordeaux enthusiast, Cliff Lede, following the acquisition of a sixty acre estate in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley on the outskirts of Yountville. With a focus on producing wines from estate vineyards, Lede tapped David Abreu, to replant the vineyards. Lede names each vineyard block after his favorite rock songs and albums; from “My Generation” to “Dark Side of the Moon”, creating the Cliff Lede Vineyards Rock Blocks.
In 2005, a state of the art, 25,000 square foot winery and cave system was etched into a hillside overlooking the estate vineyards. Not only did Cliff create a beautiful property, he also assembled an unrivaled team that shares his passion for quality. Today, Director of Winemaking Christopher Tynan crafts Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc, with the flagship, Poetry Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from the steep eastern hillside portion of the estate. In 2015, Cliff Lede Vineyards achieved both Napa Green Land and Napa Green Winery certification.
The winemaking philosophy at Lede Family Wines has always been one of minimal intervention that allows the wines to demonstrate a sense of place. Cliff Lede Vineyards, Poetry, and FEL Wines form a complementary portfolio of wines that are consistently exceptional in quality and true to their source and vintage. You can enjoy both Cliff Lede and FEL wines at Cliff Lede Vineyards tasting room at 1473 Yountville Cross Road.
Visitors will find one of Napa Valley’s most modern and diversified estates.
The property offers a complete Napa Valley lifestyle experience with a classic rock edge, where the best in wine, music, art, architecture, and nature intersect.
