About Co-Owner and Cellar Master, Cesar Arboleda
Born in Medellin, Colombia, Cesar immigrated to the United States to join his family when he was seven years old. His parents worked tirelessly – often two shifts a day – to provide their children a chance at the American Dream.
Cesar graduated from the University of Massachusetts and began his career in Information Technology, managing UNIX systems for Sun Microsystems for ten years, and eventually working at Fidelity Investments where he met Amy. In 2006, Cesar began to work with Amy toward the goal of opening a world-class, state-of-the-art winery here in New Hampshire. Often working nights and weekends around his day job schedule, in 2008 Cesar finally left his career to help Amy build LaBelle Winery full-time. Cesar manages cellar operations such as the winery”s filtration & bottling programs, and manages the sales staff.
Cesar loves learning the art of entrepreneurship and growing his business, and fastidiously manages the production of LaBelle Wine. His favorite business notion that “quality can be found anywhere” emphasizes that here in New Hampshire, world-class wine is a reality. Cesar will accept no less.
Cesar & Amy live together in Amherst, New Hampshire with their two sons Jackson Alejandro & Lucas Cesar. They are grateful for the support of their family and friends who encourage them to realize their dreams and who every chance they get.
