Who We Are

Established in 2011, Long Cliff is the testament of a lifetime of love & labor from the three generation DeMaison Family Farm. “Keeping it in the family” is at the heart of everything we do & there’s no doubt our love of wine runs through our veins – quite literally!

Farmers first, we’ve been working this same land for almost 50 years, and truly believe the key to a good wine is a successful growing season! All of our grapes are estate grown in our 5.5 acre vineyard, located on the Niagara Escarpment AVA.

The natural beauty of the fruit is the real secret to our high-quality wines- made possible because of the unique climate and soil conditions of our “Niagara Escarpment” region… otherwise known as the Long Cliff!

  1. We can’t wait for you to open! Not to mention, I LIVE in Sanborn on Upper Mt Rd! We hope to see you at this Saturday’s Grand Opening Celebration of the Black Willow Winery!

  2. It never ceases to amaze me what you can find on the internet. I was hoping to find a way to contact you, but I never thought I’d find you as a winery owner! I hope to be in NY sometime this summer, sure would be nice to see you. Good luck on your new adventure, I’m sure you’ll do great.

  3. I thought screw machine lubricant ran through your veins. The fruit of the vine is much much better. Congratulations on your new venture. Looking forward to visiting the winery. Good luck from Cleveland!

  4. Trying to plan a Niagara Wine Trail trip and was checking out your site. Hope you will be open before the summer is over. Love the label redesign. Good luck.

  5. Hello Don,

    We are opening a Wine Bar in November in Lockport. One of our core values is a blief in supporting and promoting regional wineries and breweries. Kurt at Freedom Run, a family friend, mentioned that you were opening a winery and suggested we check out your wines and consider carrying them when they become available. Please let us know when you are in business as we would love to support your efforts.
