If making great wine in New Hampshire wasn’t enough for the success story of LaBelle Winery, located at 345 Route 101 in Amherst, they always added a brush stroke or two, in the form of featuring art on display that the public may purchase.

Now Amy Sullivan, owner of Sullivan Framing and Fine Art Gallery (15 N. Amherst Road, Bedford), has partnered with the winery, managing the galleries in Amherst and in the LaBelle’s Portsmouth location.

Blending wine and art seems like an obvious choice, noted Michelle Thornton, LaBelle director of marketing and business development.

“Amy (LaBelle, namesake of the winery) has always loved the arts,” said Thornton. “She was actually a ballet dancer. And she is obviously into the culinary arts, and consumable arts.

So, when she opened LaBelle, she felt very strongly about representing all types of art, especially the visual arts. And the galleries were something that she had planned right from the get-go.”
