Burning of the Vines Family Bonfire Event - Amherst



Join the LaBelle Winery team at our inaugural Burning of the Vines celebration! At this event, you'll be warmed by a massive fire made from a pile of grape vines - called canes, pruned during spring. The fire represents rebirth and rejuvenation of the vineyard.

Admission: The event is free and no registration required.

What to expect: Upon arrival, each guest will receive a vine cutting, along with a blank card to write an affirmation of troubles you want to leave behind or aspirations for the coming year which you can throw into the bonfire to say farewell to the old and rejoice the new!

Food and Beverage: We encourage you to dine in The Bistro at LaBelle Winery, before or after the event and enjoy fire-inspired specials along with our spring menu. Beverages and snacks will be available for purchase by the bonfire.

Weather: The rain date for this event is Thursday, April 25th.  We'll announce via social media if the event date changes from Friday to Thursday due to rain.  Please dress for this event accordingly as the field may be muddy and the weather chilly.  There is no seating for the event (boots, hat, mittens, coat etc.).  Please bring chairs or blankets if desired.
