LaBelle Red Raspberry & Seyval Blanc wines blended together with the red grape Baco Noir to create this semi-sweet sparkling wine, exploding with fresh raspberry aromas & flavor. A perfect choice for any special occasion, but relaxed enough to enjoy any day alongside friends & family.
Our Chardonnay finds balance in both body and style. Winemaker Amy LaBelle blends the traditional Chardonnay grape with the cold-hardy Vidal Blanc; creating a wine true to our New England fruit. LaBelle Chardonnay is not over-oaked, aging only briefly in French Oak. Malolactic fermentation, a secondary fermentation that converts malic acid to lactic acid, lends a buttery nose, while crisp acidity and floral tones are demonstrated due largely to the addition of the Vidal Blanc. This blend is a wonderful complement to any poultry or seafood dish.
In 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. Excellent as an aperitif or with a light meal, this is a perfect wine to sip on a warm summer evening. Enjoy this wine chilled. If you like Pinot Grigio, you’ll love this one!
Can be bottle-aged up to 5 years .
About Seyval Blanc: Seyval Blanc is a French hybrid grape that ripens early and thrives in cooler climates. It is planted in England, Canada, and the northeastern United States. The grape produces crisp white wines with citrus notes.
Don’t let the hard-to-pronounce name put you off! This is an easy-to-drink wine based in the German style, featuring notes of tropical fruit. Off-dry, deeply flavored & complex, this wine will blow you away with spicy aromas of apricots & pineapple, with honeysuckle overtones. We like to pair LaBelle “Gewurz” with sausages & sauerkraut, but it’s also great with Mexican or Asian cuisine, a cheese course or with roasted pork dinners.
Can be bottle-aged up to 5 years.
The next time you enjoy a pear, close your eyes & focus on the extraordinary flavors and aromas of this everyday fruit. We have enhanced these characteristics in this special dessert wine, spiced with oranges & ginger, perfect for sipping after your favorite meal. The orange & ginger spices were freshly hand-grated and added during the wine’s aging process. Excellent with fine cheese & nuts after dinner, this wine would also compliment an array of after-dinner treats such as ginger cookies, crème brulee, cheesecake or profiteroles. Enjoy slightly chilled.
Americus is a dry and bold red with savory dark fruit notes and loads of pepper on the palate. A blend of Cabernet Franc and the French hybrid grape Noiret, the rich tannin structure pairs well with grilled meats & heavier dishes. This is winemaker Amy LaBelle’s answer for a bold & full-bodied red, sourced from grapes grown in a cooler climate. Compare this wine to a Shiraz.
Infused with French oak up to 6 months.
Can be bottle-aged up to 10 years.
About Cabernet Franc: Cabernet Franc (along with Sauvignon Blanc) is one of the parent grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon. It produces wines similar in style to the more famous Cabernet Sauvignon, but lighter bodied, with less tannin and more aroma. It can have herbaceous (green pepper) aromas.
About Noiret: Moderately cold-hardy grape created from a complex cross in 1973 at Cornell University and it withstands temperatures to -14 °F. Noiret produces wines with a deep red color, good tannins, and unusually robust pepper overtones.
In this rich, velvety decadence, we combine wine made from ripe blueberries & the French hybrid red grape Marechal Foch to create a uniquely New England red wine. Aged in French oak, the touch of blueberry makes this red grape wine a dry yet bold crowd pleaser. It is silky smooth on the palate with berry flavors, floral notes & soft tannins. Perfectly balanced, this wine is neither sweet nor tart, and is excellent with rich, spicy main courses or sweet desserts, or for sipping in front of a roaring fire. Pair with steak, grilled meats & Italian fare.
Can be bottle-aged up to 10 years.
Dulce is an aromatic white wine made from the hybrid grape variety Vidal that we spiced with cinnamon, vanilla & pure New Hampshire maple syrup. This wine was fermented over the spices, imparting strong & distinct flavors & aromas. Enjoy this dessert wine on a cold winter’s night or at the end of a traditional holiday meal.
