Cliff Lede Description
Located in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley, Cliff Lede Vineyards, a cornerstone of Lede Family Wines, has been crafting exceptional wines like Cliff Lede Cabernet Sauvignon and Cliff Lede Sauvignon Blanc since 2002. Cliff Lede, the founder, acquired 60 acres of pristine land in this renowned wine region, initiating a journey into winemaking excellence with creations such as Cliff Lede Poetry and Cliff Lede Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon.
The vineyards at Cliff Lede, including the acclaimed Cliff Lede Beckstoffer To Kalon and Cliff Lede Claret, are a testament to precision and dedication. Expertly replanted under the guidance of viticulturist David Abreu, each block is named after beloved rock songs and albums, creating what’s known as the “Rock Blocks.” These vineyards, including the Poetry Vineyard with its volcanic soils, and the Rhythm Vineyard on gravelly loam soil, are situated in two distinct locations within the Stags Leap District.
Committed to sustainable practices, the estate employs Director of Vineyard Operations Allison Wilson and her team to farm the vineyards. The winemaking process at Cliff Lede combines traditional methods with cutting-edge technology, including solar panels powering the winery and repurposing wastewater for irrigation. A cave system provides an ideal environment for aging wines like the Cliff Lede Cabernet and the Cliff Lede Chardonnay.
Cliff Lede Vineyards offers a diverse range of wines, also including the Cliff Lede Fel Pinot Noir. Their Rock Block Series showcases the creativity of the winemaking team, blending wines from various blocks for unique tasting experiences.
With a commitment to quality, sustainability, and innovation, Clifford Lede and his Cliff Lede Vineyards have made a significant mark in the world of winemaking, both in Napa Valley and internationally through their partnership with Mas Doix in Spain’s Priorat region.
