Carvers Passport to Fine Wine – Cliff Lede Vineyards Wine Pairing Dinner

Come join the Carvers team for a Cliff Lede Vineyards Wine pairing dinner on Monday, October 7th at 6:30. Enjoy an evening featuring fine wine from their Napa Valley vineyards paired with chef Drew’s great cuisine. Mingle with your friends and make new ones while learning all about Cliff Lede wine from our featured speaker Jason Lede himself. Cliff Lede Vineyards was established in 2002 by Canadian born Bordeaux enthusiast, Cliff Lede, following the acquisition of a sixty acre estate in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley. With a focus on producing wines from estate vineyards, Lede tapped David Abreu, considered the best viticulturist in Napa Valley, to replant the vineyards. Lede decided to name each vineyard block after some of his favorite rock songs and albums—from “My Generation” to “Dark Side of the Moon,” creating what is known today as the Cliff Lede Vineyards “Rock Blocks.” In 2005, a state of the art, 25,000 square foot winery and cave system was etched into a hillside overlooking the estate vineyards. Not only did Cliff create a beautiful property, he also assembled an unrivaled team that shares his passion for quality.
