Red Newt Winery Joins Landmark Feast!

We're thrilled to welcome aboard Red Newt Cellars Winery, founded by David & Debra Whiting and based in Hector, NY, in the Finger Lakes.  Thanks to their generosity, Landmark Feast guests will be sipping wine from the place that received the 2011 Award for Winery of the Year from the New York Wine & Grape Foundation!

Red Newt Cellars wines are produced on-site from Finger Lakes grapes sourced from local grape growers.  Red Newt Bistro, where Debra Whiting was the chef for many years, boasts award-winning cuisine focused on Finger Lakes ingredients sourced from local farmers.  Say the Whitings:

It is our vision to create broad recognition of the Finger Lakes as a world class wine and culinary region and establish Red Newt Cellars as the leader of the region by creating a synergy of food and wine. It is our mission to develop an unquestionable reputation for our ability to deliver exceptional quality in everything we do and to consistently meet and exceed expectations, produce exceptional wine and innovative regional cuisine presented with exemplary service in an intimate atmosphere that makes every customer feel unique and that results in long lasting relationships, increase the awareness of who we are by educating every customer and neighbor about our commitment to promoting the Finger Lakes through our creation and presentation of exceptional regional wine and food, and to contribute to the betterment of our extended community through providing rewarding work opportunities to our family of employees and enriching our community through involvement in local arts, charities, and community activities.

The Debra Whiting Foundation has been formed in Debra's honor to carry on her vision and commitment to wine, food, farms, families and community. Currently, the Debra Whiting Foundation is pending approval for a 501C3 non-profit status.
