Whitecliff Vineyard is an artisanal, family-run winery created from the ground up by owners and founders, Michael Migliore and Yancey Stanforth-Migliore, who are now joined by the next generation, their son Tristan Migliore. Whitecliff has dedicated more than 30 years to finding and planting grape varieties that succeed on its site at the base of the Shawangunk Mountains, and on a new site overlooking the Hudson River in Hudson, NY. The couple is dedicated to sustainability, environmentalism and producing vegan wines from more than 20 varieties of grapes grown on their vineyards, among the largest in the Hudson Valley. With nearly five acres dedicated to growing Cabernet Franc, including new plantings in 2016, Whitecliff produces its award-winning single varietal Cabernet Franc wines and blends. The 2016 Cabernet Franc won a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco International Wine Competition.
