After spending decades in the fast-paced wine and spirits industry of New York, Marc Newman decided to reach towards his dream of creating his own wine brand. Born and raised in New York, Marc relocated with his young family to Washington State’s wine region in late 2015.
Marc is both a veteran of the US army as well as a featured actor in daytime soaps, primetime television shows and featured films. After working under the tutelage of New York culinary leader Peter X Kelly, Marc decided to enter the wine distribution market in 1999. Dedicated to the success of his brands and the profitability of his customers, Marc rose through the ranks of the distributor chain and became a market manager for two of the largest wine families in the business. First the domestic giant Trinchero Family, and then for the international mega star Taub Family. He managed sales and distribution of some of the trade’s broadest markets and most volumetric brands.
Marc’s true exploration began with his arrival in Washington. By hopping vineyard fences, networking with winemakers, vineyard managers and bartenders, Marc began sourcing small lots of the areas best fruit from the very best vineyards. Ciel de Cheval, Scutney Flats, Red Heaven were home to the grapes that became Marc’s first vintage: 2014 Red Mountain The New Man.
Marc looks forward to crafting more wine, more styles, and many more vintages. Enjoy!
