Bella, The Wonder Dog!  Dec. 24, 1998 – Oct. 3, 2014

If you’ve visited La Belle Amie Vineyard before, you’ve probably thrown the ball for Bella…

Bella was not just the vineyard’s mascot, she has been our major attraction since the vineyard opened in 2000.  She was a super friendly,  full-blooded border collie. Because of her color, some would say she was albino. We prefer to call her “pigmentatiously challenged.”

For years she greeted visitors (especially children) with tennis ball in mouth ready to play.   As the years passed, she slowed down (as we all do) and she reached the point where her mind was willing, but her body was too frail to run.  Nonetheless, her eyes always sparkled if a tennis ball was rolled her way and she loved for you to pet her “hello.”

Our sweet Bella passed away peacefully in her sleep on Friday October 3, 2014.    She was a wonderful companion and brought joy to so many.  We’re quite sure she is already chasing a field full of tennis balls in her afterlife.

 

Meet Miss March!

Bella was also our little calendar girl. She graced the 2007 calendar of the Humane Society of North Myrtle Beach.   All proceeds of calendar sales went to this worthwhile organization.

We will be missing our yearly trip to Myrtle Beach this year due to the virus. Hopefully next year will be better. Love La Bells Amie Vineyard especially on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Miss you guy Stay safe and Healthy

So sad. We were looking forward to wine tasting. Totally understand. Stay safe!!

Our numbers are getting scary right now. But things will return to normal soon. I'm looking forward to that day!🍷

Loved going there with my parents years ago and we always enjoyed the time we spent there.

You both stay safe as well, at least you have unlimited wine to drink your way through this mess.

Thank you for your commitment to safety for our community and your employees. We look forward to seeing everyone again when it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we've been enjoying your delicious wines from the comfort of our own porch and will definitely need a restock once the doors reopen! 😉
