Weathervane Wednesday ~ from a New Hampshire Winery

Weathervane Wednesday is an on-going series of photographs I post weekly.  I started by publishing weather vanes from the Londonderry, New Hampshire area, but now I've been finding interesting weather vanes all across New England.  Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are interesting. Often, my readers tip me off to some very unique and unusual weather vanes, too! If you know an interesting or historical weathervane, please let me know.  Today's weather vane is from New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weather vane #180? Scroll down to the bottom to see the answer!

Today's weather vane was spotted on top of the beautiful LaBelle Winery in Amherst, New Hampshire. This custom weather vane is a replica of the figure on wine label produced here at 345 Route 101.  This facility has the wine production, a shop and a restaurant, as well as beautiful rolling countryside planted with neat rows of grapevines.

This winery was founded by Amy LaBelle, who experimented with making wine for many years in her kitchen, and at an orchard in Walpole, New Hampshire.  She broke ground for this facility in 2012, and it has become a popular destination for fine dining, wine tasting and elegant functions. The wines here are made from local fruit and grapes from the Finger Lakes region of New York state.  The grape vines planted in Amherst have been growing and maturing, and finally this fall will be made into their first batches of local New Hampshire grape wine.
