At Northshore Grapevine Nursery the majority of our vines are custom grafted to meet our customers’ selective requirements. We offer you the choice of various Clone and Rootstock combinations that are best suited for your location (climate) and planting schedule.
Our grape vine selection includes both Green Potted Vines as well as Dormant Bench Grafts.
Growers can select varieties, clones, and rootstocks that will work best with their vineyard location, soil type, and climate, as opposed to taking a chance on purchasing what’s currently available.
