Located practically in our own backyard, Whitecliff Vineyard in Gardiner, NY has been producing a highly respected and diverse portfolio of fine wines. Founded in 1979 by husband-and-wife team Michael Migliore and Yancey Stanforth-Migliore with the intention to push the envelope for New York State winemaking and grape growing practices, Whitecliff Vineyard continues to experiment with a focus on quality and refinement. Michael has lived on the property since 1975, and both of his grandfathers, one Italian and one German, both made wine in their home and it was a part of every holiday dinner. He worked studied organic chemistry at SUNY New Paltz and worked for IBM as a chemical engineer, and soon after began experimenting with grape growing as it piqued his chemistry interest. They now have one of the largest vineyards in the Hudson Valley, with over 20 varietals planted and a passion to always improve and refine. Vidal blanc is a hybrid grape that was created by Jean-Louis Vidal in France during the 1930s, and is known for its incredibly rich and tingly ice wines, grown mostly in the northern US (including New York) and Canada. This offering from Whitecliff is full of stone fruit aromatics with floral and citrus hints while being crisp and dry on the palate with the flavors matching the nose. Local Hudson Valley. Sustainably grown, vegan.
