Red Newt Cellars

Red Newt Cellars has joyfully produced Riesling and Cabernet Franc from Seneca Lake since 1998. With a full suite of Rieslings, from dry to dessert, and several Cabernet Franc bottlings every harvest, winemaker Kelby James Russell embraces the single vineyard ethos that he inherited from founding winemaker David Whiting. Pushing the envelop with spontaneous fermentations, lees contact, cold soaking, and basket pressing; Red Newt’s wines are designed to open up in bottle for years to come.
