Founder & CEO Shelagh D’Arcy-Hinds, a New Yorker who hails from Cape Town, South Africa, was inspired to create Cliffton Dry when she noted that an everyday low ABV sparkling wine pairs well with today’s health and wellness consumer. A consumer who loves to cook and drink wine without the aftereffects of heavier alcohol was missing in the market.
Shelagh is an avid foodie and supports not only sustainable products but also agriculture and the local supply chain. She decided to produce Cliffton Dry locally in New York State to support local farms that practice best farming methods.
