Founded by David and Debra Whiting in 1998, Red Newt Cellars is located on the east side of Seneca Lake in the hamlet of Hector in the Finger Lakes region of New York. They met in the late 1980s, when David was working as cellar master at a Finger Lakes winery while Debra was supervising microbiology labs at Cornell University. Following a passion for food and wine, David continued his oenological career as winemaker at three different wineries in the Finger Lakes, while Debra’s path led her into a gourmet cheesecake business and then an upscale catering business. When the opportunity arose in 1998, David started wine production with the 1998 vintage and the following summer Debra opened the Red Newt Bistro. Red Newt Cellars represents the achievement of David and Debra’s longtime goal to combine their efforts and expertise in the exploration of regional wine and cuisine. The ‘Circle’ riesling is their most popular wine, crisp with a touch of sweetness, showing orange citrus and stone fruit flavors with a touch of honeysuckle.
