Grape Weathervane – Chardonnay

Grape Weather Vane Chardonnay


Our Chardonnay Weather Vane is one of a series of grape cluster varietal weathervanes offered here at West Coast Weather Vanes. We also offer Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Merlot Grape Weather Vanes. In addition, we offer Wine Bottle and Glasses weather vanes and Grape Vine weather vanes.

A nice thing about the Chardonnay Grape weathervane is that the copper (and brass, if used) will eventually patina shades of green, like the real grapes. As shown here, the grape cluster has been gilded with optional gold leaf while the stem, tendrils and leaves were left natural copper. Each vane is made to individual orders and metal choices, which include all copper grapes, brass leaves and/or optional gold leafed veining in the leaves and small palladium leaf ‘water drop’ on individual grapes, are made at the time of your order.

Because we specialize in custom, copper weather vanes, we can also create designs based on other varietals. If you have a winery, are known for a particular varietal, or are simply passionate about wine, we would be happy to work with you to create a grape, grape vine or wine themed weathervane that reflects your interests.

Each type of grape varies both in the leaf structure and the way the clusters form, so you will notice that some of our grape weather vanes have serrated leaves while others are deeply notched. Some of our grape clusters are very tightly bunched while others are longer and looser in form.

Chardonnay is a green-skinned grape variety used to make white wine. It originated in the Burgundy wine region of eastern France but is now grown everywhere wine is produced, from England to New Zealand. For new and developing wine regions, growing Chardonnay is seen as a “rite of passage” and an easy entry into the international wine market. The Chardonnay grape itself is very neutral, with many of the flavors commonly associated with the grape being derived from such influences as terroir and oak. It is vinified in many different styles, from the lean, crisply mineral wines of Chablis, France to New World wines with oak and tropical fruit flavors.
