Seeking vineyard planting sites for Pierce’s disease-tolerant, high-vinifera percentage grapevines

Our selections of PD-tolerant, high-vinifera percentage winegrape vines will be arriving here at UGA in one month… I’m told May 17th, to be exact.

At this point, I have roughly 80-90 vines each of the 88% white and 88% red cultivars that yet have a “home.”

I am seeking host locations to plant and maintain these vines for observational/performance purposes and also for the purpose of future research trials.

No promises or guarantees, but I am giving preference to vineyard locations at or below roughly 1000-1100 feet above sea level.

You will be responsible for coming to pick them up here in Athens in mid-May, planting them, caring for them and maintaining them.  I will not be able to provide trellis supplies – sorry.

Many, many thanks to all.
