Vintner's Luncheon at Cliff Lede Vineyards

The best modern wineries don’t just focus on producing great wine, they also embrace the subtle, atmospheric influences that go into making it — nature, music, art, the perceptions of all five senses. With that in mind, owner Cliff Lede has created one of the most exciting, forward-thinking boutique wineries in Napa, one that is as much about creativity as it is about creating wines that embody the essence of the land. 

Guests at today’s event will be treated to a delicious luncheon on Cliff Lede’s sculpture-dotted, 60-acre estate, where the vineyard blocks are divided into “Rock Blocks” which Lede famously named after legendary rock songs and albums like “My Generation” and “Dark Side of the Moon.” Expect a rockin’ playlist at lunch, along with his chart-topping signature Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon.

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.
