Bare Root Wine Grapes

Grape vines have been grown since ancient times and they are extremely long-lived. In Maribor, Slovenia, a 400 year old vine, considered to be the oldest in the world, is still producing!

The classic wine grapes Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah and Zinfandel require warm summers for ripening. Many of the white wine varieties, such as Chardonnay, do well in cooler climates. Home wine-making has been become a popular hobby and many publications and books are available with detailed instructions. Wine grapes can also be used for juice.

The wine grapes we offer are all grown on their own roots. They have low chilling requirements but factors such as soil and climate are very important for satisfactory production. The vines are usually trained on a double wire structure and pruned according to cane or spur type techniques.
