On Sunday June 25, Michael Migliore owner and winemaker of Whitecliff Vineyards and Winery got the best Father’s Day present – he received a call from Jim Trezise of the New York Wine and Grape Foundation telling him that his 2009 Riesling had won a Double Gold Medal as well as Best White Wine in the San Francisco International Wine Competition.  This wine competition is HUGE.  It has over 3500 entries from more than 21 countries.

Congratulations to Whitecliff – Michael and Yancey Migliore and their winemaking team.

I happen to be at the winery that day and got the opportunity to interview Michael about his win and the wine.
