VIP Tasting – Über-90 point Riesling

At Red Newt Cellars, Riesling is what we do. Drawing from our lineup of single vineyard and reserve Riesling wines, we’ve selected a flight of wines that have been recognized with exceptional scores from publications such as Wine & Spirits, Wine Enthusiast, Robert Parker, James Suckling, Wine Spectators and others. And we’ve paired the wines with a tasting plate designed by the Bistro chef, Jeremy Personius.

This tasting is limited to 10 people, by reservation, and is curated exclusively by one of the Red Newt team with in depth insights and commentary on the wines and the food.

The Bistro at Red Newt, Red Newt Cellars, Hector, NY

First established alongside the Red Newt Cellars by Debra Whiting in 1998, the Red Newt Bistro has always celebrated the region’s best farmers—and without patting themselves on the back for it too much. The winery gained early acclaim as one of the top Riesling producers in the Finger Lakes. After Whiting passed away in 2011, the Bistro has morphed into a friendly counter-service operation under the direction of chef Jeremy Personius, with modern comfort-food favorites ranging from a kale Caesar salad to kimchi grilled cheese and griddled mac-and-cheese with ham, bacon, or pickled peppers. With a wood-burning stove and cozy interior, it’s welcoming in all seasons but especially inviting in the winter.
