About Founder, Co-Owner and Winemaker, Amy LaBelle
Amy LaBelle is the founder and winemaker at LaBelle Winery. Formerly a corporate attorney practicing in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, her lifelong interest in wine led her to open LaBelle Winery to pursue her passion for winemaking.
With LaBelle Winery developing into a destination winery, Amy has slowly seen her dream realized: to focus full-time on making world-class wine in New Hampshire. Building LaBelle Winery has taught Amy so much, and she’s evolved from the many lessons learned along the way. She’s emerged as a strong leader and mentor, a certified winemaker, farmer, producer of farm-to-table food, innovative entrepreneur and philanthropist.
Amy is serious about her mission to provide customers with the very best culinary and wine experience, as her philosophy is to treat guests of LaBelle Winery like family. Her ultimate vision is to give back to the community through charitable giving in ways that are fulfilling, impactful and meaningful, and to grow her business exponentially so that she can contribute more.
Love of learning, dedication, integrity, love of craft, innovation and passion is her formula for success. Every day matters and Amy tries never to waste her days. Amy’s paramount success is being able to grow LaBelle Winery with her husband, Cesar Arboleda, while also balancing life with their two sons.
Amy is also the founder of Empowering Angels, a charitable organization that empowers girls and young women to embrace the possibility of entrepreneurship. The program provides education in basic business skills and strategies and through providing women role models by which these aspiring young entrepreneurs can model their behavior.
Amy lives with her husband, and co-owner of LaBelle Winery, Cesar Arboleda, and their two sons, Jackson Alejandro Arboleda and Lucas Cesar Arboleda.
