Supplied as a bare root grafted vine approximately 12" - 18" (30 - 45 cm) tall including roots.Available from approximately late November 2013.
An excellent flavoured flavoured pale plum coloured grape with a very high sugar content. This really is a gorgeously sweet grape to eat - almost like eating a mixture of honey and dessert wine
This is also a popular variety for the English wine industry (and rightly so) - and grown at our closest vineyard at Leeds Castle. It actually performs better here in the UK than it does in it native Germany. Alan Rowe , author of the acclaimed book 'Successful Grape Growing for Eating and Wine-Making' says of Schönburger, "if I was planting a new vineyard in Suffolk this would be my first choice".
