I visited Rew Newt Cellar on a weekend morning, and you can taste 6 wines for $6 from a wide spectrum of wines, from Riesling, Gewurztrminer to Merlot. The owner is very passionate and knowledgeable in wines. Look forward to their wines coming up in later years!

Had lunch at Red Newt and the food was great. Got seated by the pellet burning stove which was nice since it was cold and windy that day.

I stopped with a group of 9 for a wine tasting and lunch. Our wine guide Samantha was knowledgeable about the wines and very friendly. The lunch was absolutely delicious, don't miss out on the tomato soup.
