Red Newt Cellars Winery & Bistro is located just outside the bucolic hamlet of Hector on the east side of Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes wine region of New York. As a recipient of Wine & Spirits Magazine's 2011 Winery of the Year, the message at Red Newt Cellars is simple: grown here, made here. With a collaborative team of winemakers and chefs, it is this combined effort between wine and cuisine that sets Red Newt apart.

The winemakers craft award-winning, regionally expressive Finger Lakes wines with an emphasis on single vineyard aromatic whites such as Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer. The chefs create a locally sourced menu that is ever changing, eclectic, and exciting - tailored to reflect the seasonal bounty of the Finger Lakes with a wine list representing 200+ selections from top producers in the region. The focus is not only to craft world-class wines and innovative, locally sourced cuisine, but also to create a synergy between them.

Taste a flight of 6 wines for $5 in an informative yet casual atmosphere standing at one of our tasting bars overlooking the picturesque hillside. For groups larger than 12, please call 607-546-4100.
