LaBelle Winery

A Note from Amy & Cesar

 

"The juice of the grape is the liquid quintessence of concentrated sunbeams."   

Thomas Love Peacock

As we look to the sky and thank Heaven that this winter is over, we begin the task of pruning our grapevines to coax forth the May bud break.  Last year, bud break occurred on May 8 in our earliest vineyard, but we think we will be about a week or two later this year.  If you have time, please stop in to see the beautiful buds as they break out of their winter casements. Each vineyard’s bud looks a little different and all beautiful!

Vineyard Club members are looking forward to joining us for our last barrel tasting on April 30th before we bottle our newest red wine, the Americus Reserve. For information about joining our Vineyard Club for special opportunities like this, please contact Jennifer Pratt in our Tasting Room.  We hope to release Americus Reserve to the general public toward the end of May.  Speaking of new releases, we can’t wait for you to try our new Red Sangria! We’ll keep you posted on a release date for that as well.  

 Enjoy Spring!

Dear Amy & Cesar,

Thank you for all the help, a beautiful venue, and amazing people to work with.  Our wedding went perfectly!  We could not have been happier! All we have heard from our guests are rave revues of the winery, the wine, the food, the decorations, and of course the band!

We will definitely see you at the winery again sometime soon for lunch and a tasting!

Thank you,
Andrew Tilden
