Due to global warming and new varieties been available from Germany, It is now possible to grow grapes outdoors in Ireland that will be nice to eat and/or make a nice wine. Irish wine is generally light and fruity and best drunk young. However it will keep for a few years if it is properly made. A mature outdoor vine would produce enough fruit to make a bottle of wine in a good year. Grapevines always grow better against a south facing sunny wall. A variety like Siegerrebe would do well in this position, giving nice pink berries which are good to eat and would be ripe in October. Outdoor grapevines in Ireland are generally ripe between September and October depending on variety.
Bare rooted grapevines are best planted in the Autumn or Spring, Which means that now is a good time to plant . Potted grapevines can be planted any time of the year.
