The classic green wine-making grape

The 'Chardonnay' vine is a popular and classic variety of wine making grape. The plump, green fruits have a sweet taste with crisp firm skin and juicy pulp. Highly versatile, the fruit can be eaten fresh from the vine, or made into jams, jellies, juice or wine.

Hardy and reliable, this grape is self-fertile and is a heavy cropper. Not only does it produce excellent fruit but also makes a great ornamental plant with the green foliage turning a gorgeous orange colour in the autumn. This grape vine can be grown outside and is happiest when placed in a sheltered position in either the full sun or partial shade, giving you plenty of options for choosing where to put it for maximum impact. You can be sure that this grape vine will add plenty of colour and interest to your garden.

It is important to regularly water your plant, at least bimonthly for two months. Grapes differ from other fruiting plants because their roots grow deep. Therefore it is important to give them a thorough watering. You should also ensure adequate spacing (1.8 - 2.7m) between vines, depending on the planting system you use. Please see below for our planting guidance:

  • Dig a hole that is twice the radius of your plant’s rootball.
  • Before planting, drench the rootball.
  • Place the pot in the planting hole, making sure that it sits no lower than an inch below the ground.
  • Fill the planting hole with a mix of compost and garden soil, finishing with fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi. Take care to not compress the soil.
  • Provide your plant with a generous watering.
  • Add mulch on top, (whether bark and wood chippings, compost, manure, leaf-mould, and stones). Try to keep the mulch from touching the stem.
Depending on their location and hours of sunlight, grape vines can be slightly more challenging to grow. Below we address some common query topics:

    • Hardiness: While grapes originate from the Mediterranean and Central Asia, they are hardy enough to survive the UK's winters. However, they can sometimes suffer from frost damage. To avoid this, try to plant them in a south-facing location.
    • Position: When it comes to grapes, planting in full sun is always recommended.
    • Soil: Grape vines benefit from deeper soils, but 3ft is still adequate. Although the fertility and granularity of the soil determines fruit size, a smaller size is less of an issue with these plants. This is because their primary use is often wine making, where smaller fruits are preferred.
