Anyone know where to get root stock or cuttings of Pinot Noir & Chardonnay within Greater Sydney ?
Welcome to Workshop and thanks for joining in the discussion. I hope you find plenty of useful information, advice and inspiration on the site. And I'm looking forward to reading about your projects. It sounds like you are planning a vineyard. Hopefully some community members can steer you in the right direction.
Please let me know if you need a hand getting the most from the site.
I'm not based in Sydney but I would suggest you would need to find a specialist fruit tree nursery. Eg https://www.daleysfruit.com.au/fruit%20pages/grape.htm or http://www.glenavon.com.au/
I also wonder whether you might be able to try small vineyards? This one is in the states, but serves as an example -https://doubleavineyards.com/grape-vines-for-sale
Good luck. I will be keen to hear how you go.
Thanks for yr reply. Tried daleys. Incredibly when asked about Pinot & Chard. they replied with a formulaic "reliability of supply .."& other nonsensense. I live in Paddington Sydney & would like a few vines on my balcony. Endeavour is proving harder than finding a Epoisse that lasts more than a day. Have hope.
http://www.golgolnurseries.com.au/ are not in the Sydney area. In fact they are as far from Sydney as you can get and still be in NSW, but were one of the biggest suppliers of vine cuttings and rooted and grafted vines to the Australian wine and dried fruit industries. Give Bryan a call 03 50248502. Good luck. Tell Bryan that Stephen from Curlwaa said to call, he will probably charge and extra 10%

Thanx for yr reply. Daleys were my first search. Although they have Cab Sav & Shiraz, they don't do my 2 with a rather amazing response stating difficulty in supply & reliability . Given the no. of Chard & P. Noir vines in Australia, I find this & the general lack of availability incomprehensible. I'm only after a couple of each grape.
