Zinfandel Grape Vines (Vitis 'Zinfandel') are mid-season ripening wine grapes that make the classic beverage that is known around the world! These deep purple-black clusters of frosted fruit are high in resveratrol, an antioxidant that offers great health benefits and creates a fantastic drink! Ripening around August in many cases, you'll kick off the vineyard harvest season with this incredible fruit!

The lush green foliage and strong canes are wonderful backdrops for the white blooms and deep near-black clusters of fruit. Those clusters of flowers will be visited by swarms of bees and beneficial pollinators! They will help you pollinate these Vines! Zinfandel vines are self-fertile and you'll enjoy a great harvest, but planting multiples of these vines means increased pollination for all!

Zinfandel Grapes are a mixture of Plum, Blackberry, and dark Cherry flavors, and are highly aromatic to the nose. The wine these grapes create a deep-red color with brilliant purple hues! Heat hardy throughout USDA growing zones 6 through 10, these Grapevines are grown throughout a wide range of climates and conditions.

Planting and Application:

Zinfandel Grape Vines are fantastic fruiting Vines to grow on arbors and trellis, fencing and any structure with support. Train up supports or a lattice to shade a balcony while keeping the roots in a large planter and gain lovely fruitful privacy without sacrificing space! The vines are amazing dual-purpose edible landscaping specimens, shade, and privacy Vines!

Not only does the fruit make tasty beverages, but the grape leaves are also used in Mediterranean recipes! Try stuffed grape leaves known as dolmas or dolmades! Blanch and brine them to make grape-leaf pickles and included them in salads. Harvest clean, shiny, chemical-free leaves in the late spring and early summer.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Zinfandel Grapes need to be grown in full sun, preferring the morning sun to dry the leaves and fruit. Provide plenty of regular moisture to get your vines established and they will reward you with years of delicious fruit. These plants appreciate deep, somewhat acidic, well-drained soil.

Top off with a 3-4 inch thick mulch layer to support the roots, plus regular fertility. Prune your Grapevine in late winter or early spring to maintain the shape, size, and vigor of next year's fruiting wood. Use bird netting to keep a majority of the fruit for your fermented beverages!

  • Full Sun
  • Regular Moisture & Fertility
  • Best in Rich Well-Drained Soil
  • Appreciates Mulched Beds
  • Prune in Late Winter/Early Spring
