Red Newt Wine Cellars

Since the late 1990s, Peter Bell of Fox Run Vineyards has hosted a winetasting for his fellow Finger Lakes winemakers.

“I’ve always been interested and motivated to taste with other winemakers, my colleagues.” 

On this particular morning, the group is tasting tank samples of 2015 semi-dry Riesling, what Bell describes as works in progress.

“The best time to make some changes, of course, is before the wine goes into bottles. And that’s what’s going on right now.”
