If you are looking for wine grape vines for sale in California for your established vineyard or if you are looking to begin growing your own wine grapes, choosing a variety can be a challenge. There are important factors to consider, including knowing your local climate and annual rainfall, as well as which types of wine you are looking to produce or sell.
Finding Your Plant Hardiness Zone
The USDA has compiled a helpful chart for determining in which zone your vineyard is located, based on minimum winter temperature in the areas. In California, your latitude and elevation play a big role in this number, and can change over a relatively small distance, as there are a large number of micro-climates in the state. You can enter your zip code on the USDA site to find your specific zone.
Rainfall is important, as it will determine how much irrigation you will need for your new grapes while being careful not to over-water them. Particularly in the spring, too much water can suffocate plants. Our grapevines are a good fit for all zones in California, and have been sold all around the world. By carefully following our planting and irrigation instructions for your grape vines, you should have success growing your vineyard.
Choosing Your Grape Variety
Choosing the type of grapevines you want to purchase might be based on any number of things. Maybe you’ve got someone who needs a supplier for a specific variety, or maybe you are looking to expand your current vineyard production. You may be looking for a small-scale vineyard, with just enough for personal and hobby wine use. Whatever your reason, having a wide range of options is important.
