The Rhythm of the Vineyard

At Cliff Lede Vineyards, we recognize that rhythm is essential to life and can be found in everything from poetry and music to grape growing and winemaking. From bud-break to harvest, and from fermentation to blending, each vintage carries a unique, but familiar, cadence.

Join us for an educational session that explores the natural rhythms that energize our vineyards and influence our wines. Gain a deeper understanding of what it takes to grow world-class wine grapes and be amongst the first to sample a brand new Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon from our estate vineyards.

Limited to 50 guests · 10:45 AM - 12:15 PM

Hosted by Pine Ridge Vineyards

A Leap Year Pine Ridge Vineyard Expedition

This immersive seminar offers the unique opportunity to taste our wines precisely where they are cultivated, allowing you to forge a deeper connection with the soils and environment that define our Stags Leap wines. To dive deep into the heart of our vineyards, we will be arranging for luxury transport to each site. Please note this is an outdoor adventure so comfortable shoes are recommended.

The Art of Cellaring

For decades, Stag's Leap Wine Cellars has tucked away a small number of cases each vintage to evaluate how the wines age and evolve. The ultimate goal is to offer connoisseurs the opportunity to experience these special wines after being stored in perfect cellar condition.

Join Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Chief Operating Officer Juan Muñoz-Oca for a guided tasting of standout Cabernet Sauvignon from the winery"s S.L.V. and FAY estate vineyards. The selected vintages will showcase how Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon can gracefully evolve within the cellar over time to their full potential. He'll reflect on the incredible legacy of Stag's Leap Wine Cellars and the continued innovations at the winery.

Petite Sirah Deep Dive

The "Petite" in the name of this varietal could be a very misleading adjective.

When it comes to color, tannin structure and flavor concentration, there is nothing "Petite" about Petite Sirah. The Petite in the name refers to the size of its berries, creating a high skin to juice ratio that leads to intense concentration of color, tannins, and flavors.

From the early 1900's, Stagss Leap Winery has been a Napa Valley leader in the farming and crafting of the most coveted Petite Sirah wines worldwide.

Join Stags' Leap Winery GM and Senior Winemaker Ludovic Dervin for a deep dive into the history of Petite Sirah, showcasing and tasting how Stags Leap District Petite Sirah can evolve through time.
