Winegrowers Supplies  -  Grafted Vines, for delivery to you in April 2023

In the past 38 years I've sold more than 1,340,000 of the finest quality grafted vines from the best nurseries in Germany, France etc.
Clones and rootstocks (all resistant to Phylloxera) appropriate to the vine variety, your training system and soil structure / alkalinity.
Vines have double-waxed tops and roots pruned ready for planting.
Comprehensive advice is given free of charge.

You may be able to find vines a little cheaper from another supplier, but quality is much more important than saving a few pence. I've always purchased from the most reputable nurseries.

I can supply vines only in bundles of 25 of a variety, each having its own EC Plant Passport.
Regulations say the EC Plant Passports must be kept for at least 12 months. This is how they are packed in Germany and other EU nurseries:-

    

Prices (for the total of all varieties ordered):-

     25 - 50      £2.95 per vine

  for 4000+ vines I can arrange planting by a GPS-guided planting machine, please ask for the price.

Vines are 'food plants' so VAT zero rated, but standard rate VAT is chargeable on the price of planting.

Where Euro prices are shown, for sales in UK invoices will be in £ sterling converted from Euros at the exchange rate obtained when I transfer money.

All sales to EU countries will be invoiced in Euros for payment in Euros by Bank transfer. There is a minimum order of 100 vines for delivery to EU countries.

Packing and Delivery: to your address, within UK:  25 - 400 vines £19.50, 425 - 775 vines £35.00, 800 + vines no charge.
     for other countries there is a small additional charge.

Payment: I invoice from December onwards.
     Please confirm your order as early as possible, since demand for some varieties often exceeds the supply.
     Late orders are possible, up to end of March because of the complexity of importing into UK after Brexit.

To place an order:  please send an e-mail to Derek@winegrowers.info listing the vines you wish to buy, with your address for delivery. I will then e-mail you a confirmation.

Varieties available:  are shown on the list below, please click on the name for detailed information about the variety.

High-graft vines: (High-stem, Hochstamm, Haute Tigues, the main stock is around 80 cms, with the graft near the top) often I can supply these (only in cartons of 100 vines)
but the price is £1.75 more per vine. Or there are Half-stem (Halbstamm, main stock around 65 cms) @ £1.65 more per vine.
The only real advantage is when in-filling in an established vineyard. These vines need to be clipped to a trellis wire immediately after planting.

Organic vine-growing: I have never found a nursery who supplies vines certified as 'organic'; however, since it takes more than 2 years to produce a crop the Soil Association's 'conversion period' is complete before there is a crop. You should ask the Soil Association about this, they will give you full information on their requirements and what chemicals you can use. I've supplied vines to many customers who've registered with the Soil Association.

For 'organic' vine-growing I recommend Piwi varieties. Piwi (Pilzwiderstandsfähige) is a German term to define vine varieties that have been described previously as hybrids, direct producers, interspecific, disease-resistant or disease-tolerant.
Piwi implies a certain resistance or tolerance towards the fungal diseases that are present locally or worldwide. Such diseases infect all pure Vitis vinifera cultivars (e.g. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay etc.) where an out-of-control infestation can lead to total crop loss. These vinifera varieties need to be sprayed with approved fungicides 6 to 10 times during the growing season; the fungicides inevitably enter our environment.
