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 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. Gamay Noir áu Jus Blanc is the full name of this grape in its home region of Beaujolais, where it is popular for producing light, lively reds. But when fermented without any skin contact, it results in a crisp, refreshing white wine. We’re excited to have the Hudson Valley version: a shimmering white gold color in the glass, its floral nose yields to an intensely mineral palate. Layers of apricot pit, lemon balm, and wet stones are cut through by a streak of buoyant acidity, leaving a delicate nutty note on the finish.
