LaBelle Winery

A Note from Amy & Cesar

 

This week we celebrate bud break as our previously dormant vines burst back to life! We are so grateful our vineyard fared well through the harsh winter.  Thank you to our Vineyard Manager, John Temchack for guiding our vines toward producing excellent grapes!  I can't wait to turn them into LaBelle wine...

 Best Wishes,

 Amy and Cesar

Semi-Dry and Versatile, Seyval Blanc is the feature wine of the month

If you like Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc then you'll love this elegant, fruity wine.  We slow-fermented the french hybrid grape Seyval Blanc, resulting in a delicate and beautiful wine, replete with floral, fruity notes and soft tannins. This wine’s citrus notes make it wonderful with seafood or creamy pasta dishes. Seyval Blanc is the wine featured in our Winetinis; Mint Julip, Margarita, Hemmingway and Gentleman's Martini and Summer Shandy. Enjoy!

Wine Clubs

Vineyard Club Members Enjoy a Private Tasting and Visit their Vines!

On April 30th, Vineyard Club Members (VCM) enjoyed a Seminar led by our Vineyard Manager, John Temchack, sampled our spring inspired Bistro Menu and enjoyed an exclusive Barrel tasting, led by winemaker Amy LaBelle - of our soon to be released - Americus Reserve.  Our VCM made new friends and visited their thriving vines in the Vineyard; which was so enjoyable, witnessing how well the young vines made it through the harsh winter ready to grow, grow, grow. We are happy to report that both - proud "parents" and "vines" are doing great and the Americus Reserve is fantastic!

You can be part of the LaBelle Winery Family by joining one of our three membership clubs. With great incentives and three levels of opportunity, there is no reason not to join. Our clubs are great for gift giving as well.  What could be more special that owning a vine with your name, a family members name or Company name on it?  Great for Corporate recognitions (sure beats a plaque)!  For more details, visit the winery, call the Tasting Room:

Customer Testimonial

 

Our private party was just perfect at LaBelle!

 

My group rented the small private room where we held our Christmas Luncheon. The room was beautifully decorated with four tables of six. The service by Adam and Victoria was impeccable. The food was fantastic. French onion soup followed by either Vegetable ravioli or Braised chicken. Both received rave reviews. Dessert was a chocolate pot de creme. Perfect!!!
