Open: Year Round

Whitecliff is an artisanal, family run winery created from the ground up by current owners and founders, Michael Migliore and Yancey Stanforth-Migliore, in what was an empty field thirty years ago. Over that time we have worked towards our goal to establish a winery that is both thoroughly rooted in the agriculture traditions of the Hudson Valley, and recognized and respected as a producer of fine, complex, European-style wines.

Michael has lived on the property since 1975, when he was studying for a master's degree in organic chemistry at SUNY, New Paltz. In 1978 he started work at IBM as a chemical engineer in semiconductor manufacturing, and soon after began experimenting with grape growing as a natural expression of his background and his skills in chemistry. Wine had figured prominently in his upbringing: his German and Italian grandfathers both made wine at home, and it was part of every family dinner.
