LaBelle Winery owners purchase Brookstone event center
‘We have big plans’ for Derry property, they say
The couple said the Brookstone property, to be renamed LaBelle Winery Derry, will undergo significant renovations beginning in December 2020 with the intention of creating a “champagne house,” a marketplace, a wedding and event center and a restaurant.
“We have big plans for LaBelle Winery Derry,” LaBelle says. “This stunning property, which Cesar and I fell in love with, will be a place that offers the community exceptional experiences that people of all ages can enjoy.”
She added that the move comes as LaBelle Winery Amherst “has grown exponentially since we opened in 2012. LaBelle Winery Derry will complement our Amherst operation well. It hasn’t been easy to find the perfect property and location to grow our business, but we’ve found it here.”
LaBelle said her plans for Brookstone include renovating the property to give it an “artisan village” ambiance. Improvements will include updating the event center’s facade and interior with steel and wood tones, giving the building a modern yet classic look. The “village” will be home to several outdoor and indoor gathering areas, including a nine-hole par-3 golf course, which will be open to the public as well as offer memberships, and a miniature golf course. A three-acre vineyard with an adjoining performance space, and an area for private wedding ceremonies are also planned.
LaBelle also said she intends to build a champagne house, which will include a tasting room and a space where a new line of sparkling wines will be produced.
The Brookstone property includes two wedding and event venues, one accommodating more than 300 guests, and the other accommodating 150.
“Our goal is to create one of the best wedding and event venues in the area,” LaBelle says.
