Amy LaBelle, owner and founder of LaBelle Winery, has been honored with the NH Businesses for Social Responsibility’s 2019 Cornerstone Award, in recognition of her efforts to integrate environmental and socially responsible initiatives throughout her operations and in her community.
LaBelle was presented with the award at the organization’s 18th annual Spring Conference, held May 1 at the Grappone Conference Center in Concord.
