LaBelle Winery

A Note from Amy & Cesar

Dear Friends,

We eagerly anticipate harvesting the gorgeous grapes that now adorn the LaBelle Vineyard. Vineyard Club Members please watch your emails for an invitation to join us for a very special harvest day filled with grape picking and a family-style breakfast. Dates have not been set yet, as we await Mother Nature’s direction. Meanwhile, we are busy preparing the wine cellar for our busiest wine-making season, cleaning and tuning up crush equipment, bottling wine made in the last 19 months, and stocking up on yeast and other winemaking necessities. We are feeling excited and focused, as we research new techniques and ways to always improve our winemaking.  This year, we’ll implement oak integration during red fermentations, a concept that has already changed the structure and style of our blueberry wine. And, we’ll continue to experiment with traditional battonage and sur lie aging, following the old world winemaking styles of Europe. This time of year in the wine industry is referred to as “Crush”. We raise our glasses and toast to a great Crush and wish for many, many more.   Thank you for the opportunity to share our wine with you.

Best Wishes,

Amy and Cesar

Wine Feature 

Riesling is our featured wine of the month

LaBelle Riesling is a semi-sweet, aromatic white wine with apple, peach & pear notes as you first raise the glass. On your palate, this wine is complex – adding floral and honey overtones – alongside citrus nuances and a delicate minerality. That’s why this wine is great with a variety of food pairings ranging from appetizers to desserts. It is so flexible that it compliments most meals – a nice easy choice! Especially great with poultry or seafood.  Enjoy!

Wine Clubs

Adopt a vine for a colleague or loved one, it's as easy as joining our Vineyard Club

What could be more special and ORIGINAL than owning a vine with your name, the name of a family member or Company name on it?  A great gift for wine lovers who have a milestone to celebrate such as an engagement, wedding, birth of a child, birthday, anniversary, promotion or retirement (to name a few)! Your vine is easily identifiable via a colorful marker that showcases your message or person of honor. We'll nurture and care for the vine on your behalf.  The gifted vine recipient will get to enjoy the vine's progress and MANY additional PERKS via the Vineyard Club program!

Customer Testimonial

“Outstanding, all the way around” 

With visitors in town from the west coast, we wanted a dining experience that would incorporate some local flavor into an excellent meal. LaBelle completely surpassed our expectations.

We dined on the patio on a cooling summer evening. Seated not far from the door that leads out, I was initially concerned that there would be distracting foot traffic, but I never felt at all disturbed. We had excellent service, from start to finish, with a server who was simultaneously attentive and unobtrusive.

We were a party of 4 (two couples), and we shared many of the dishes, including the artisan cheese / meat platter (excellent, with fresh fruit as well). It was the perfect size appetizer for the size of our group. Each of our dinners was excellent (although I still think my mango pork chops was the best at the table!). We topped it all off with 3 mini desserts and 4 spoons, and all agreed that while the brownies and creme brulee were very good, the lemon curd was incredible. ("A party in your mouth!")

I can't think of an area for improvement. We judge this to be the best meal we've had in many years, and look forward to returning again -- perhaps in the fall, so we can lounge a bit around the fire pit.
