Here's a spot that sells wine grape vines. If you are looking for grapes to make your own wine try this google: buying wine grapes. It turned up a lot of source info.

Try eBay. I bought some Zinfandel vines there not long ago.

How did you do with those zinfindel vines? Did it take a good 2-3 years to get them up and coming? What is the yield per grapevine?

I am just DYING to add a bunch of concord grapevines to my suburban 'FARM" along with with the rest of the stuff i grow here, but i am hesitant, as i fear they will freeze over the harsh winters here in chicago..they are not CHEAP to buy..

Who in zone 5 has a good grape crop?

WHERE IS ZONE 5?

RE: Looking for wine grapes

Sunflower123, zone 5 is a ways north of you ... it's anywhere where the winter temperatures are -10 to -20 degrees F.

Haven't had any luck with wine grapes up here yet - I know that there are some vineyards that have successful plantings of Seyval and maybe some Cabernet Franc near me but I don't know where they got their plantings.

Try the St. Francois Vineyard.

I have ordered from Double A as well. The vines are awsome.

I ordered my vines this year from Double A too. The nice thing about them is they have a huge variety to choose from and there is no minimum quantity required. I bought 3 vines of 5 varieties.
