A prolific and early ripening red grape bred in Germany to add body to flavourless red wines. Grape 'Dornfelder' produces good sized, blue-black grapes which ripen well in the UK and have one of the best flavours when used for desserts, or making wine and juice. This easy to maintain variety has medium vigour and good disease resistance. With their large leaves and good autumn colour, grapes vines also make an attractive garden feature when trained over a pergola. Height of cordon trained vine: 1.8m (6'). Spread of cordon trained vine: 1.5m (5'). Untrained plants may reach up to 8m (26').
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 3 years.
Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Our 2-3 Litre grape vines are grown on grafted rootstock and are almost 3 years oldWhen growing grape vines choose a sunny position in any well drained soil. A south facing position against a wall is ideal. Grape vines require sturdy support for their twining stems. Before planting, prepare a framework of wires stretched horizontally between two sturdy 1.8m (6') posts or attached to a warm wall. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil. Plant grape vines against the wire supports, allowing a distance of 2m (6') between plants. After planting, reduce the newly planted grape vine back to height of the lowest support wire, and cut back any side shoots to one bud, before tying the main stem in to the supporting wires.
Water grapes vines only during dry periods as excessive watering can reduce the quality of the fruit. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the vines in spring to retain moisture at their roots throughout summer. Prune grape vines in winter and train them in summer. Do not allow them to carry a crop of grapes until their third summer.
