LaBelle Winery http://www.labellewinerynh.com New Hampshire Wine, World Class Quality Tue, 30 Sep 2014 17:19:09 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.0 LaBelle Winery Announces New Executive Chef and New Sous Chef http://www.labellewinerynh.com/labelle-winery-announces-new-executive-chef-and-new-sous-chef/ http://www.labellewinerynh.com/labelle-winery-announces-new-executive-chef-and-new-sous-chef/#comments Tue, 30 Sep 2014 16:22:05 +0000 http://www.labellewinerynh.com/?p=6596 More...]]> ChefHoytAmherst, NH - LaBelle Winery is pleased to announce that Executive Chef Justin Abare Hoyt will now lead the LaBelle Winery culinary team for both The Bistro at LaBelle Winery and LaBelle Winery Events. Chef Hoyt has created delightful new Autumn dishes for The Bistro’s French-inspired lunch & dinner menu and will bring his culinary talents to weddings, private and corporate events at the spacious LaBelle Winery Event Center.

Chef Hoyt joins LaBelle with a wealth of experience leading teams, most recently at the Blue Sky Restaurant Group in Hanover, New Hampshire, where he led a team of 30 chefs. He is deeply rooted in classic French cuisine, but has also led fine dining restaurants in Puerto Rico, developing great depth of knowledge in both food presentation & style. With a deep commitment to family & community, Chef Hoyt participates in many charitable events throughout the year, and will continue to do so in concert with LaBelle Winery’s robust charitable program. Chef Hoyt’s experience managing commercial produce gardens will support LaBelle Winery’s sustainable gardening program. Many of the fine dishes enjoyed at LaBelle Winery contain ingredients grown in the Winery’s garden, which sits directly below the Arboleda Vineyard.

“Chef Hoyt is motivated, passionate, creative & professional, and we are thrilled to welcome him to our team,” says Winemaker Amy LaBelle.

Strengthening the LaBelle team is Chef Hoyt’s new Sous Chef, Chef Angelina Jacobs. Chef Jacobs is incredibly skilled and adept at both food preparation & plating. She brings an uncommon passion & determination to her work that shines through on every plate. LaBelle Winery customers will enjoy her signature dishes because they are perfectly balanced with all flavors and textures merging for a perfect dining experience. Chef Jacobs will also support the growth of The Winemaker’s Kitchen – a culinary line of products launched by LaBelle Winery last year, which includes wine-focused jams, jellies, spices & marinades, honey produced & harvested in the LaBelle vineyard, wine salts, drink rimmers, and three culinary wines. Chef Jacobs comes to LaBelle Winery from Shea’s in Essex, Massachusetts.

LaBelle Winery, a state-of-the-art facility, stands atop Bragdon Hill on Route 101 in Amherst, New Hampshire. The Winery features 3 acres of vineyards, four spacious event rooms, The Tasting Room & Gift Shop, The Bistro, and a 10,000 square foot production facility. The Bistro’s offerings include menu items and cocktails featuring LaBelle wine, as well as wines by the glass, beer & dessert. Don’t hesitate to bring the whole family to visit the winery; the Bistro menu includes Children’s items. Culinary delights prepared by the new chefs at the Bistro at LaBelle Winery can be enjoyed for lunch and dinner service Sunday – Tuesday, 11am – 6pm & Wednesday – Saturday, 11am – 9pm.

The next time you enjoy a pear, close your eyes and focus on the extraordinary flavors and aromas of this everyday fruit.  Winemaker Amy LaBelle says, “I have always wanted to make a pear wine to capture and transform these characteristics into a gorgeous dinner wine.”  The humble pear expresses itself with elegance and a crisp acidity in this dry, fragrant table wine filled with soft fruit and floral tones.  Enjoy LaBelle Dry Pear wine with salads, seafood, or chicken dishes, or with a beautiful cheese course.  This wine also makes an excellent aperitif.
