Reservations at Red Newt

The Red Newt spaces have been reconfigured to offer exclusively seated wine and food experiences in a socially distanced environment. During the summer, we have outdoor seating that is available on a walk-in basis. Our seating indoors may be reserved using our online reservation system or by calling Red Newt at 607-546-4100 x1. Please let us know if you would like to be seated on one of our outdoor decks, weather permitting!

The Red Newt Experience

We are excited to welcome you to Red Newt Cellars for wine by the glass, bottle, and “tadpole”(personal-sized bottles of wine) at socially distanced tables on our decks and indoor seating. We have created a small, elegant menu of light fare and small bites to complement your wine selections. When you arrive at Red Newt one of our servers will escort you to a table where you can relax, peruse the wine menu and place your order for food and wine.


What is my reservation for?

Your reservation ensures you a table to enjoy wine tasting flights, wines by the glass, bottle, or “ tadpole” with a light food menu.  

Does Red Newt Serve Lunch?

We offer a small, delicious menu of lite fare including cheese boards, meats and small bites. If you are remembering a visit with us pre-covid, we’re sorry to report that we are not currently serving the full lunch menu that we previously offered.

Does Red Newt offer tastings?

Yes. We offer a selection of curated wine flights (4 wines of 2oz each). We also offer wine by the glass, bottle, and “tadpole”.  

What is a “tadpole”?

The Eastern Red Spotted Newt begins its life in the water as a tadpole.    You may have enjoyed a flight of wine before, but a “fleet” of tadpoles is just a bit different and is way more fun!   Build your own “fleet” of tadpoles, our personal sized 6 oz bottles of wine, or grab a few to enjoy a tasting with your friends.

Are masks required?

Masks are not required for fully vaccinated individuals. Others must wear a mask at all times, except when seated at a table. 

What is the largest group size Red Newt can accommodate?

Reservations may be made online for groups of up to 8 people.  If you have questions regarding reservations at Red Newt Cellars, please call 607-546-4100 X 1.
