Widely grown in France, Vitis vinifera ‘Pinot Meunier’ is used to produce champagne, sparkling wines and rose wines. It resembles Pinot noir and is noted for its rich purple-black fruits and distinctive white downy leaves. It is among the most winter hardy of the red Pinot wines. Easy to grow, Grape vines not only reward you with large crops of delicious fruits, they are also very decorative, providing a handsome leafy cover that clothes arbors, fences or trellises beautifully.

  • Grows up to 40-60 ft. tall (12-18 m) and 10-15 ft. wide (3-5 m).
  • Thrives in full sun in well-drained soils. Tolerates a wide range of soil conditions, including sand or clay, but good drainage is essential. Best sited in a location sheltered from winter winds (preferably a sunny south-facing slope) and well removed from frost pockets. Needs good air circulation.
  • Grape vines require sturdy support for their twining stems such as pergolas, walls or fences. Perfect in cottage gardens or Mediterranean gardens.
  • May be affected by powdery mildew and botrytis
