Comprising sixty acres in the northern end of the Stags Leap District, Cliff Lede Vineyards brings together some of the best Napa has to offer in an enclave of quiet and understated elegance. The grounds surrounding the tasting room feature gardens, contemporary sculptures, and breathtaking views of the Stags Leap palisades.

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.

  • The wine was good but the overall experience was pretty lacking compared to my last visit here. Was not a good experience hearing about all the good wines that we couldn’t taste.

  • I had a wonderful experience at the vineyard. Very good wine, nice staff. Not very touristy. HOWEVER, I am placing this ONE STAR review here because of the non stop bombardment of promotional spam...

  • Absolutely stellar wines with incredible host Kelly! The patio where had our tastings was beautifully set for a relaxing time. This was part of our anniversary gift to ourselves which did not disappoint. I highly recommend this as your top wine destination if you’re heading to Napa.
  • My husband and I were so lucky to have Bill during our tasting at Cliff Lede. He blew us away with his knowledge of the wine, the winery’s origin, and the Napa Valley area. We cannot sing enough praises about how great he made our experience! The tasting times were also limited, which allowed a more personalized experience and more time to explore the property, which was definitely a positive and unique touch when compared to the other wineries we tried during our trip. We’ll definitely be coming back here!
