Union Leader: With Court Battle Over, LaBelle Winery Submits New Plan for Expansion
AMHERST — After a lengthy court battle, LaBelle Winery is ready to move forward with its newest venture — The Farmhouse Marketplace.
The proposed facility, which would be constructed across the street from LaBelle’s existing winery and event center along Route 101, would include a tavern, a distillery, a tasting room, a market, function space, office space and a cottage with three to five bedrooms for bridal parties.
“We have a really long-term vision for this property,” Amy LaBelle, owner and winemaker, said of the site at 340 Route 101.
Plans for the proposed facility have been a long time in the making, according to LaBelle, who said the ultimate vision for The Farmhouse Marketplace is to provide gathering space for community events and charitable events.
