OUR HISTORY

Established during the outstanding vintage of 2013, Vine Nursery New Zealand was formed with a partnership between Drazen Mijatov and Geoffrey Smith. Both were experiencing a transition in their careers and identified a need to supply the NZ Wine industry with quality certified grape vines. They had both previously worked in grape vine nurseries and quickly started to get all that was needed to start propagating and growing grape vines.

A few years later Drazen, who was located in Auckland, left the business as he focused on another horticultural enterprise based in Pukekohe allowing Geoffrey to become to sole director.

Since the beginning, VNNZ has been a leading supplier of Quality Certified Grafted Grapevines. We now have many satisfied clients who see the advantages of dealing with VNNZ. They know they are going to receive outstanding grapevines at NZ's lowest prices as well as awesome service.
