Vintner's Luncheon at Cliff Lede Vineyards

What is it to be a modern winery? Is it sleek architecture, miles of solar panels, and prestigious consulting winemakers? That is certainly part of it. But the best modern wineries embrace not just winemaking, but everything that influences it – nature, music, and art. And with all that in mind, owner Cliff Lede has created one of the most exciting, forward-thinking boutique wineries in Napa.

Guests at today’s event will be treated to a delicious luncheon on Cliff Lede’s sculpture-dotted “Rock Blocks” 60-acre estate (Lede famously named his vineyard blocks after legendary rock songs and albums. Expect a groovy soundtrack at lunch!), where his signature Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon will flow.

What makes a great winery? Passion, certainly, is a winning part of the paradigm. But when Cliff Lede decided to jump headlong into the winery business, buying 60 stunning acres in Napa Valley’s Stags Leap district in 2002, he knew he was all in. Fifteen years later, that passion—for wine, for art, for music (Lede famously named his vineyard blocks after legendary rock songs and albums)—has created one of the most exciting boutique wineries in the area. Here guests can enjoy rotating and permanent art installations, highly-acclaimed Bordeaux style blends and a gallery featuring photos and artwork of some of the world’s most iconic rock musicians.
