The most unpretentious place we visited. Our server "Art" was wonderful and knowledgeable, without getting in the way. The whole vibe is very cool and sitting on the veranda for the tasting is so much better than at most of the long-established wineries. Best of all, the wines are exceptional. My hope for Cliff Lede Vineyards is that they never lose the great vibe they have obviously worked so hard to create...as they become more and more known, that will be the challenge.

Went on a recommendation and thoroughly enjoyed it. Small tasting lounge , very comfortably presented . Great wines , tasting menu is $ 25 and that's for four different wines with advice from the vineyard chaps. Unfortunately travelling internationally, I couldn't buy any but would do so if I were in US. The courtyard area etc is very convivial but may get crowded at busier times. A must visit if in the area .

Not impressed... $20 gets you 3 tiny pours of their most basic wines.

Most Napa wineries will waive that fee with at least 1 bottle purchased... but NOT HERE! We were going to buy several bottles, but walked out when we were rudely told "We don't waive fees here, it cheapens the brand"... OK, suit yourself... Enjoy the 20 bucks

Wines: OK, but not great
Service: The guy pouring seemed like he'd rather be somewhere else, kind of a jerk. Borderline rude, snooty, and not at all "friendly"
Grounds: I've seen better properties in Lodi CA

With so many awesome choices nearby, we won't ever be back here. Sorry Cliff Lede, but your wine isn't good enough to make up for poor customer service

It's blazingly gorgeous here and the wine flows and flows until your check liver light illuminates. I'm a bit weepy sentimental about the old S Anderson days but Cliff Lede continues the legacy and the Staff is super, the grounds even more beautiful and the wine so so so good.

This is a fun place to not only taste some great wines, but to hear classic rock as well as look at the humor that the vintners impart on their clients with rock song titled vineyards and visual rock and roll jokes on their wine bottles.
