Cliff Lede Vineyards

Brand Summary

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.

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 Twin Peaks 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.”

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.

FEL Wines

Brand Summary

Established in March 2014, FEL Wines produces Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Gris from the Anderson Valley. These cool climate regions are known for producing wines of bright acidity and considerable complexity. In addition to the Anderson Valley labels, FEL Wines features a unique portfolio of vineyard designate wines, including both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The letters in FEL represent Florence Elsie Lede, Proprietor Cliff Lede’s mother, a home winemaker who provided the early inspiration for Lede’s love of wine. Growing up in Alberta, Canada, Cliff remembers the tulip as signifying the end of winter, bringing with it a freshness and excitement of warmer days ahead. The FEL label, featuring an illustration of an opening tulip, is a tribute to Florence’s passion for gardening.
