Who:  The signature dishes and 5-star status are why Abacus, after 17 years is still a perennial name on the most renowned “Top 10” and “Most Popular” lists. Every lunch, dinner, special occasion and cocktail is a chance for an extraordinary experience.

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.  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 today known 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. In 2015, Cliff Lede Vineyards achieved both Napa Green Land and Napa Green Winery certification.
