  • Vine shelters are used to protect your newly planted vines from drying out, extreme temperatures, and critters such as rabbits. They are a wax coated paper product similar to a milk carton. They are 20 inches tall and have holes along the side so you can attach them to the stake. The top is designed to fold closed and then be re-opened when the vine reaches the top.

  • Grenache is a late ripening variety that prefers hot and dry climates. Given the right conditions this variety can produce a large crop that will need to be balanced in the vineyard for quality wine production. The wines produced from this variety usually show bright red fruit and subtle spice characteristics.
  • One of the six main Bordeaux varieties, Malbec, or Cot as it is called in France, is a great stand-alone variety but normally used as a blender. It is fairly productive and provides deep color.

  • A white grape variety most commonly found in the Northern Rhone region of France. This variety often produces a relatively heavy crop of loosely clustered berries that prefer dry warm regions to grow in. The wine shows flavors of melon, honeydew and mineral, along with undertones of nuttiness. This could be a great substitution for Chardonnay or could be blended with Roussanne.
  • Another Bordeaux variety, Merlot is one of the most widely planted varieties in the world. It produces medium tannic wines with black fruit characteristics. It is consistently productive with loose clusters and large berries. It is suitable in hot and cooler climates and has good winter hardiness.
  • Also known as Mataro, is a variety that prefers hot dry regions and tends to ripen later. Mourvedre is most commonly found in Blends of Syrah and Grenache although it does very well on its own or as a rose. The wines tend to be full bodied with earthy undertones and a dried strawberry backbone of fruit.
  • Also known as Muscat Canelli, it produces small berries and tight clusters. The vines yield a medium sized crop. The wines of Muscat Blanc are always very aromatic leaning towards more floral and ripe fruit components.

  • Perlette is a white seedless table grape. It is a very early season variety with small, round, "pearl shaped berries." It is a very good raisin variety.  This variety performs best with cane pruning.
  • More popular as Petite Sirah in the U.S., this variety produces inky, black, full bodied wines. It is often used as a blender with Zinfandel. But, it is also blended in small amounts with other varieties to add color, and structure. The berries are small (petite) and the clusters are tightly packed making it highly susceptible to bunch rot. It is not considered a cold tolerant variety.
  • This is the latest ripening variety of the Bordeaux family of grapes. It produces rich colored wines with high tannins. The clusters and berries are small. It is grown throughout the world in small quantities. But, it is not considered a winter hearty variety.

The clusters are small to medium sized with small berries. It has medium disease and winter cold tolerance. Some of the most sought-after wines in the world are made from Pinot Noir grapes.
  • Although Primitivo is considered to be the same as Zinfandel (they have the same DNA), we list Primitivo differently because this selection is a looser cluster than Zinfandel and is less susceptible to rot and other diseases. It can be used to make red and white (rose) wine. Primitivo is not as winter cold hardy as other varieties but can be planted where temperatures stay above 15 degrees F. It is a high producing variety that makes fruity wines that can be consumed at a young age.
  • Green Tie Tape is used to attach the vine shelters to the stake and/or wire.  It is also used to secure green shoots, trunks and cordons to the stakes and fruiting wire.  The tape will stretch with the growth of the vine without girdling the plant.  One roll is enough for a year's worth of work on about 25 vines.  It keeps well for the following year.  And, it can be used on other plants in your garden. 1/2" x 200' per roll 25% discount on 12 rolls or more.  
  • Princess ripens mid-season with large, white (green), seedless berries with a muscat flavor.  The berry and cluster shape resemble Thompson Seedless.  Like Thompson Seedless, this variety should be cane-pruned.
  • Often called White Riesling, it produces aromatic wines with high acid. It has small clusters and small berries and can be left on the vine to produce late harvest wine with noble rot. The vines are very cold hardy and are grown the coolest regions of Germany, France, Austria, and Canada. It is popular on the East Coast as well.
  • Rootstock ONLY is just what is says; "rootstock only."  There is no grape variety grafted to it.  Use this option if you want to do your own grafting in the field. This is a great option for shade arbors also.  Rootstock varieties produce little or no fruit.  But, they look just like a fruiting variety without the maintenance and care that comes with producing fruit.  We carry most common varieties of rootstock.  So, if you know which one you want, add it to the notes at checkout.  If not, don't worry.  We will pick the one that is appropriate for your area. Rootstock varieties are also Pierece's disease resistant.

  • The basis of many Italian wines such as Chianti, and Super Tuscans, this variety has a very vigorous growth habit and is usually very productive. The small berries have thin skins and high acidity. Sangiovese requires a long, warm growing season to sufficiently ripen the fruit. It is not suited for cold winter temperatures.
  • Sauvignon Blanc is a high producing white wine variety that is not very winter cold tolerant. It is grown in every grape growing region from hot to cool climates. It has medium disease tolerance.

It is sometimes co-fermented with Syrah.  
  • Zinfandel is an American grape variety that performs differently in the field, but is genetically the same as Primitivo. It can be used to make red and white (rose) wine.
