A Midsummer’s Night Update

We’re quickly approaching the busiest time of year on our farm, and we don’t want you to miss an ounce of the excitement!

If you aren’t following along with our daily Countdown-to-Harvest updates on Instagram, we encourage you to go check out what we’re up to: @longcliffwinery

Read on for more news & updates, PLUS – be sure to order your Carry Out Corn Roast Tickets (which include a bottle of our wine of your choosing) if you haven’t already! Presale tickets end August 6th!

Calling Home Winemakers!

I know nobody wants to think about Summer Ending, but Harvest Season will be here before we know it! Now is the time to get your orders in for small lots of grapes & juice from our Niagara Escarpment Estate Farm, as well as supplies including yeast, additives & equipment for all your home winemaking needs!

Don’t know where to start? E-mail Danielle to set up a 1-on-1 coaching session with Grandpa Don: longcliffwinery@gmail.com and to place your grape order. 

Last year one of our home winemakers inspired a brand new wine coming to the Long Cliff Tasting Room later this year (more details on that coming soon!!) – We’re excited to work with you all this season & see what great wines you can create on your own from our high quality vinifera grapes!
