  1. Vine Sales
    • Where vines are sold without a Vinescapes contract to install the vineyard. Vines are sold as seen and are non-refundable. No responsibility is taken by Vinescapes for vine success as this is determined by soil preparation and the selection of the correct rootstock, clone and variety for the site. Vinescapes therefore have no responsibility for the vines once delivered. Vines are issued with a UK vine passport.
    • Where vines are sold with a Vinescapes contract to install the vineyard. Vine losses of up to 2% can be expected, following planting, and Vinescapes are not responsible for these replacements, as vines are live plants and this is an expected maximum loss. Small vine nurseries are often included at the time of planting (where vines are available) to provide for future replacements. Vine issues experienced within 12 months following planting affecting >2% of vines will be fully investigated by Vinescapes and as necessary the vine nursery. Any issues with vine failure and/or disease will be investigated thoroughly. Losses of over 2% are uncommon, provided that vines are planted and cared for correctly. If customers experience losses greater than this, the supplier must be notified as soon as possible and allowed to inspect the vines. In the event that the failures can be attributed to a fault in the vines supplied, then free replacements will be offered. In any event, the supplier’s liability will be limited to the replacement cost of the vines.
    • Vines are provided with UK vine passports to guarantee vines are of the variety, variety clone and rootstock and rootstock clone stated. Plant passports should be retained by the buyer.
