Cliff Lede Vineyards

As you enter into the heart of the Napa Valley on the scenic Highway 29, a striking sign greets visitors with a quote from famous poet Robert Louis Stevenson, “…and the wine is bottled poetry.” When Cliff Lede purchased a steep hillside vineyard in the Stags Leap District, he took a cue from Stevenson and named the vineyard “Poetry.” Likewise, a few years later, he opened the luxurious five room Poetry Inn on that same hillside. The scenic terraces of the estate Poetry Vineyard bear the fruit for Cliff Lede’s flagship Cabernet Sauvignon, Poetry.

Each fall, we offer the newest release of Poetry Cabernet Sauvignon to those on the Poetry mailing list.
The wine is sold in handsome custom wood boxes in six-packs of 750mL bottles, or individual 1.5L, 3L, or 6L bottles.
The 2013 Poetry Cabernet Sauvignon is now sold out. Join our wait list to express your interest in acquiring the next release.
