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 winemakers craft elegant, regionally expressive Finger Lakes wines with an emphasis on single vineyard aromatic whites such as Riesling, Gewürztraminer, and Pinot Gris. Red Newt also produces world-class reds perfectly suited for the cool-climate region of the Finger Lakes: Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon.Plan to visit Red Newt Cellars and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Hector attractions using our Hector trip itinerary planner.

Summary: Nice building, friendly and helpful staff, and good wines. Food: Delicious foods for a good price. The food was also served quickly (though the restaurant was mostly empty). Wine: Good wines! Plenty of options (many different Rieslings) and great tasting room staff (Tameka and Sam were both fantastic at explaining the wines and recommending ones to try). Ambiance/View: Pretty building with plenty of space for larger groups, and a pretty view out of the windows in the restaurant side.
Took my daughter here to celebrate her birthday and had a wonderful experience. Our tasting host was friendly and so knowledgeable. Definitely can’t wait to return.
