LaBelle Winery

A Note from Amy & Cesar

Dear Friends,

We completed our 2016 harvest last month, with the help of LaBelle Winery staff and our Vineyard Club Members, which was such a joy-filled celebratory event for all. The grapes are now in tanks, actively fermenting which imparts a beautiful smell throughout the winery. In a blink, it seemed, the grape vines had shed their leaves after harvest and entered their winter dormancy period. It's astonishing to think how well the vines performed, producing beautiful clusters of fruit, even with the notable drought they withstood with literally no water other than what Mother Nature offered. Not only are the vines cold weather hardy but they are also drought hardy.

With the change of season, we eagerly anticipate the upcoming holidays. We also look to Veterans Day on 11/11, as a day devoted to giving thanks to our military veterans, some of whom are employed right here at LaBelle Winery. Cesar and I wish everyone a joyous wonder-filled and safe holiday season and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for another successful year. We couldn't have done it without your ongoing support, and we look forward to continuing to bring you award-winning wine, fabulous Bistro fare and enjoyable and educational events in 2017.

All our best,

Amy and Cesar

Happy Cranberry Wine Week begins on 11/16!

LaBelle Winery's award winning Cranberry Wine, Apple Cranberry Wine and our 2016 release of Sparkling Cranberry Wine are the perfect wines to compliment your holiday entertaining. Cranberry Wine is a classic pairing with roast turkey and so much more. For many, it wouldn't be Thanksgiving without Cranberry Wine; and has become a holiday tradition. Make it a tradition in your home or start a tradition by gifting a bottle to friends and family hosting Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinner. It is truly a gift a hostess will be thankful for. During Cranberry Wine week, LaBelle Winery will be fully stocked and ready to assist you with your shopping and will help you carry your purchase to your car as many of you buy wine by the case. By purchasing wine by the case, you will receive an automatic 10% discount off the case price. Cranberry Wine can also be found in your local grocery store and local specialty store as well.

Cocktail Feature 

Beautiful, bright, elegant and popular cosmopolitan cocktail made with cranberry wine!

Try our version of this ever so popular favorite, the Cranberry Cosmo. We call this beverage a winetini, using wine as one of the featured ingredients.  Here is the recipe: 6 oz of LaBelle Winery Cranberry Wine, 2 oz Triple Sec, 1 oz Fresh Lime Juice, 1 tsp. Sugar (or more to taste), 3 – 4 Ice Cubes, Colored Sugar or LaBelle's Cranberry Wine Infused Sugar for rimming glasses. Put all ingredients into a shaker and mix vigorously.  Pour into sugar-rimmed martini glasses and garnish with lime wedges, if desired.   Sip with friends and enjoy! Makes 2 martinis.

Everyone loves a Cosmo, and if you want to serve something fancy, easy to prepare and delicious for the holidays, this winetini is guaranteed to be a hit. Enjoy!

Wedding Testamonial from Lauren - Knot 5 Star Review

I had my wedding reception at LaBelle Winery in September 2016 and it was absolutely stunning! The great room is absolutely beautiful with the chandeliers, windows and modern-rustic charm. We had just under 120 guests and it was a perfect fit for us. The food was outstanding and the decor was even better than I could have ever imagined. Our band had plenty of room to rock out!! If I did it all over again, I would choose LaBelle in a heart beat – it was our perfect venue for our perfect wedding!
