Specialising in propagating top quality, grafted grape plants for the New Zealand wine grower market.

Welcome to Ormond Nurseries, a locally owned family business based in Marlborough.

Ormond Nurseries Ltd has operated for over 40 years, specialising in propagating top quality, grafted grape plants for the New Zealand wine grower market. We strive to actively support youth education within our local community and the professional development of our customers.

We graft grapevines that are true to type, fully traceable (budwood and rootstock) and regularly tested for Leaf Roll Virus. Vines are grafted to order, and we recommend that you order your plants well in advance to avoid disappointment.
