We were not very impressed with Cliff Lede, and ended up being disappointed as we were looking forward to going to the winery. We had tasted some good quality wines from Cliff Lede previously, but our visit turned out to be a disappointment. The winery itself is scenic, amongst its 60 acres with private wine gallery and Inn (Poetry Inn). Outside has a large, sun-drenched patio where you can take a glass of wine to enjoy in the surroundings. We found the servers not very friendly though and not that interested in answering questions about the wines or the winery. The winery seemed very pretentious to us - "take your wine and go outside" kind of attitude. Perhaps they think they are Opus One? Disappointing.
