June 23 - Red The Restaurant and Wine Boutique Welcomes New General Manager and Executive Chef

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

June 23, 2017 - Red The Restaurant and Wine Boutique, formerly known as R&D Wine Boutique, welcomed Virginia “Ginger” Orlowski to their team as Red’s new General Manager, and Heath Prosser as Red’s new Executive Chef.

Heath Prosser, New Zealand native, began his cooking career at age 18 while traveling the world. He has worked in Michigan, Miami, international waters, Australia, New Zealand and Hilton Head Island. Prosser earned his Certificate of Cookery from Box Hill College in Australia. Heath began his career on Hilton Head Island at the Old Fort Pub, spent 11 years at the Heritage Golf Group and is now proud to lead the culinary team at Red.

Ginger Orlowski has decades of experience in the food and beverage industry. She obtained a Bachelor’s degree from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Computer Art and a minor in Interactive Design, however, always remained intertwined in the restaurant business. Ginger moved her way from Dishwasher to Hostess, Server, Bartender, Supervisor and now General Manager. She has worked locally at the Wexford Plantation Clubhouse, The Crazy Crab, Jim-N-Nick's, Berkeley Hall, and The Bluffton Room.

Her unique combination of well-rounded skills within the industry, networking capabilities and keen eye for design have made Ginger an ideal fit for the newly enhanced team. She and Red’s new Executive Chef, Heath Prosser, look forward to adding a fresh, revitalized take to the Red fine wine and dining experience.

The restaurant recently changed ownership and has undergone drastic changes over the past few months. Since new owners, Arturo and Tara Lopez, have taken over the establishment, Red has been completely remodeled with new interior décor and seating, new additions to their staff, and a brand-new menu. Despite these changes, their focus on enhancing and providing an educational experience centered around fine wines has remained their number one priority.

To experience the finest wines, food, and atmosphere that Bluffton has to offer, call Red The Restaurant and Wine Boutique, at (843) 837-3747 or make a reservation at
