The “Rock Blocks”

Most vineyard blocks are mapped out with a straight-forward A, B, C or 1, 2, 3 system. After Cliff Lede tapped viticulturist David Abreu to replant the vineyards, the plantings were so specific and precise to each soil type and exposure that, to keep track of the blocks without having to refer to a clipboard, Cliff decided to name each block in the Rhythm and Poetry vineyards after some of his favorite rock songs and albums. Block names such as “My Generation” and “Dark Side of the Moon” created what is known today as the Cliff Lede Vineyards’ “Rock Blocks.” Our winemaking team gets creative with this invention, annually crafting a small-lot “mash up” bottling of two or more blocks. Past vintages have included names like “Cinnamon Stardust,” “Lonely Wizard,” and “Landslide Fire.” Check out the playlist of our Rock Blocks and rock on!
