Owner description: Red Newt Cellars is one of the Finger Lakes' preeminent Riesling producers. Rieslings from our most popular "Circle" Riesling to a full lineup of single vineyard selections are produced at Red Newt. Elegant wines of Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris are also a focus. In addition to these aromatic white wines, Red Newt produces a line of exquisite Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir wines from select vineyards in the Finger Lakes. The Tasting Room at Red Newt provides a traditional "stand up" tasting of Red Newt Cellars current wine releases. Each day, featured wines are offered for tasting. Tastings are available on a walk-in basis for groups of up to 12. Reservations are suggested for groups larger than eight.

We had a very knowledgeable pourer in the tasting room but he just seemed awkward to me so I did not feel super comfortable there for some reason. Wines were all pretty good but we did not buy. We had lunch there out on their deck overlooking the vineyards and lunch was fantastic..super fresh with decent sized portions but limited selections.

Visited last summer, never reviewed.
Stopped for a wine tasting and spent some quality time there as the person serving me was very knowledgeable and friendly. Ended up buying some of their Rieslings and recommend.

Red Newt has a VIP tasting that includes tasty bites of food. This is a lovely tasting hosted by one of their knowledgeable staff. You really get a good idea about why the wines of Red Newt are special. The wines are special, the single vineyard wines have always stood out and the quality sets Red Newt apart from the pack in FLX to be sure.

My friends and I stopped here this weekend on our bachelorette wine tour. We sampled six different wines off their list. It was hard to choose only six to try they had so many! They had quite a variety of white wines from dry to very sweet. I really enjoyed their port wine. Only a few reds to try, which is typical of the region. Our host was very friendly and made the tastings fun. We had lunch here as well. They specialize in fancy grilled cheeses. As a vegan I had a black bean burger (no bun offered) and salad. Pretty tasty overall. Great view and lovely patio.

Red Newt Cellars makes serious and world class wines, with dry Rieslings that are equal to those from Germany and Alsace. We had an exceptional guide for our tasting: Heather, who is engaging, articulate, and very knowledgeable, offered an outstanding introduction to their wines. In addition to our tasting, we enjoyed a delicious light lunch, accompanied by a dry Riesling, on their lovely deck. Lunch was so good that we returned for an encore the following day!
