Hill Laboratories have expanded their viticulture testing capability with the acquisition of the assets of Vine Testing Laboratory (VTL), a specialised ELISA laboratory able to diagnose Grapevine leafroll-associated virus 3 (GLRaV-3).
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.

Home of the HI-STEM®
HI-STEM® vines get to the wire faster and cheaper than a traditional vine.
Ultra vines are potted, dormant grape plants that have been grown-on in pots for a year before being two-budded in winter.
Bare Root Vines
Our bare root vines are available as standard vines as well as HI-STEM® vines.
Machine Planting Tall vines
One common question from our growers is whether or not you can machine plant HI-STEM® vines.
The answer is yes, machine planting a new development using
HI-STEM® vines is a common practice that is both easy and cost – effective.
