Labelle Winery will soon have a new home, but the best part of the business has been making an appearance over the past month.
The winery’s grapevines were planted in June and have been growing alongside their new 11-acre location on Route 101 in Amherst. The new Labelle Winery will feature a vaulted ceiling Celebration Hall for functions of up to 200 people, a spacious outdoor terrace for events with up to 100 people, and a plush, intimate Vintage Room for gatherings of up to 36 people.
Labelle is growing five grape varieties: Noiret (red), Chancellor (red), Seyval Blanc (white), Petite Amie (white) and Cayuga (white).
The new winery, opening later this summer, will be able to produce four times the amount of wine than the winery’s current location on Chestnut Hill. It will also feature a full tasting room open Wednesdays through Sundays, with all 22 varieties of LaBelle wine available for purchase.
The old location will officially close after its last open house event on July 28.
