We were probably the first ones at this winery. Their white wine selection were wonderful and purchased a few bottles. This place would be a great pit stop for a luncheon. Highly recommend this place.

We stayed in Yountville and utilized the complementary bikes at our hotel to bike to Cliff Lede. It was a last minute decision so we didn't have an appointment which was fine. We walked right in and enjoyed our tastings at the bar. The server was great! So friendly and helpful. We sampled 6+ wines with some generous pours. It... More

Remembering this was our favorite winery to visit when we last visited about a decade ago, and the only winery we're members of, we were excited to return for a tasting. The experience in the "Front Row" tasting section did not disappoint as we had a 2 hour tasting in comfortable chairs listening to good music. So much fun and... More

We stopped here primarily because Cliff Lede took over one of our favorite Anderson Valley vineyards, Breggo, and moved their tasting room to Napa Valley. We did enjoy a fairly pleasant FEL Pinot Gris, but we found the staff in the outdoor seating area to be brusque and rude. One staff member even acknowledged that he "could be a jerk"... More

Cliff Lede was our third stop of the day and having had pretty bad experiences at Domaine Carneros and Artesa we were ready to give up and go back to our hotel...thank god we didn't! We were welcomed into Cliff Lede like regulars, the building and outdoor seating area were beautiful however we took our tasting at the bar. The... More

This was our first of 3 stops and we tried the Sauv (unfortunately) so wouldn't recommend that and the Chardonnay which was nice. We got rather poor service here but did enjoy the outdoor setting. Another group appeared to get very good service and wine knowledge so I guess it's luck of the draw.

Wine was AMAZING, our tasting guide could not have been better (gave great explanations and did not rush us), setting was beautiful. Looked like you walked into a Martha Stewart magazine. Would go back in a heart beat! Chardonnay was great too :)

The tastings here are delivered with a highly scripted speech. We learned much about the owner's love of music and financial success, but the server learned little about us. First rule of service is the customer should do 80% of the talking. Cliff Lede needs to work on this. This was our least inspiring winery visit.

Thank Tamara B
