Winegrowers Supplies  -  Grafted Vines, for delivery to you in March/April 2020

In the past 35 years I've imported more than 1,190,000 of the finest quality grafted vines from the best nurseries in Germany, France and Luxembourg.
Special clones where available 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 France and Germany:-

    

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

     25 - 50      £2.75 per vine
    75 - 300      £2.40
   325 - 475       £2.15
   500 - 975       Euro 2.15
  1000 - 1975    Euro 1.90
  2000 - 3975    Euro 1.80
  4000 or more - please e-mail for a quote.

  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, invoices can be paid in Euros or in £ Sterling converted from Euros at the exchange rate obtained when I transfer money.

Any tariff imposed on imports from EU as a result of 'Brexit' will need to be added to the price.

Packing and Delivery: to your address, within UK:-
    25 - 300 vines £19.50, 325 - 1975 vines £33.00, 2000+ vines no charge.
    for most other countries there is a small additional charge.

Payment: invoiced from 2nd November, for payment by end of December, before I import the vines.
    Please confirm your order as early as possible, since demand for some varieties often exceeds the supply.
     Late orders may be possible, even in March, although by then some varieties will be 'sold out'.

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 but the price is 2.20 Euros more per vine.
Or there are Half-stem (Halbstamm, main stock around 65 cms) @ 2.00 Euros 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.
