LaBelle Winery

A Note from Amy & Cesar

As I write this note, we have just finished our first harvest here at LaBelle Winery, which has filled us with gratitude for the many blessings we have been given.  We are also in the midst of fermenting thousands of gallons of wine in this very busy wine-making season, and we can’t wait to share our new creations with you!  The wine cellar smells amazing due to the many different varieties that are working hard in their tanks.  The days pass quickly when we are hard at work, so we are also looking ahead to the quickly approaching holiday season, during which we will release our new wine – Spiced Winter Pear –  a beautiful dessert wine spiced with orange & ginger tones, with hints of cinnamon & clove.  We know it will give your holiday meals an extra special finale.  Cesar & I hope you will find time to visit us this Autumn to see & smell for yourselves all the wonderful things we have going on at LaBelle Winery.  

Best Wishes,
Amy & Cesar

Bistro News

We are 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. 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. 

Chef Hoyt’s new Sous Chef, Chef Angelina 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.

We will begin serving Chef Hoyt's new Fall Menu on October 6th. Stop by and try out some of these tasty new dishes!

Vineyard News

Harvest is complete!  We proudly harvested our red and white grapes, a little earlier than expected.  For the red harvest, we were joined by Vineyard Club members who enjoyed a celebratory brunch after their hard work.  It was a very emotional & wonderful celebration of just how far we’ve come since our opening day.  Click here to see all the photos from this momentous occasion. Now, the vineyard will continue to soak up the sun’s rays and store some much-needed energy to get it through the winter.  Watch for our vineyard improvements: bird-netting & deer fencing we hope to have in budget for next year!
