Here at Red Newt we can’t help ourselves – we bottle a bunch of unique wines every vintage. The downside? The arduous, quarterly-task of inventory day. From ceiling to cellar, we search the entire building and count every last case and bottle of wine. This task serves as a great reminder of the beautiful wines we have in stock.
Today in particular we reminisce over the magnums of Riesling: the hand-filling, the hand-leveling, the hand-corking, the hand-labeling, and the hand-waxing. All in all, a lot of extra labor worth every minute of the cellar team’s effort. Plus, magnums hold two bottles, so they make an impressive display.
We are pleased to be able to present these age-worthy bottles that always end up being the center of attention when they are opened. Let’s be honest, we are pleased we get to enjoy them ourselves as well!
So, the next time you drop by Red Newt Cellars Winery and Bistro, have a look at the magnums. They are stunning, a conversation starter and a celebration in a bottle. We look forward to showing off these wines to you!
