Our Feedback
Thank you all very much for the two trees that arrived yesterday. As you may remember they were for my wife's birthday and she was absolutely delighted. We have followed the instructions and they are now looking very nice in our small but crammed garden. They were well packed and even as she unwrapped them she had no idea what they were, a perfect surprise. So impressed was she with the service, I think other orders may follow.

Bred in Switzerland in the late 1990s, and released for planting in 2013, Divico is attracting a lot of attention among UK growers looking for a grape that will produce a full-bodied red wine, reminiscent of a Pinot Noir. A cross between Gamaret (itself a cross between Gamay and Reichensteiner) and Bronner, Divico named for an ancient Gallic chieftain who led his people into battle against Julius Caesar. Naturally resistant to many fungal diseases, including mildew, powdery mildew and grey mould, Divico thrives in the humid UK climate, and is well suited to more northerly climes.

Divico flowers in early June, avoiding frosts and allowing for optimal pollination, and ripens late. It has an upright habit, meaning it can be easily trained. Its moderate yield means that crop-thinning is not necessary.

  • Originally from Switzerland.
  • Parentage - Gamaret x Bronner.
  • Grapes produce a full-bodied red that is, many believe, as good as Pinot Noir.
  • Naturally resistant to many fungal diseases.
  • Needs fewer pesticide treatments.
  • Late-season fruit ripening.
  • Winter wood ripening is good so can be grown both outdoors or under protection (greenhouse, polytunnel or conservatory).
  • Can be trained using either the cane replacement method or spur pruning.
  • Self fertile.
