About Rebschule Schmidt ( Schmidt Vine Nursery)
History - from the beginnings until today
tree nursery approx. 1930
Rebschule Schmidt is Bavaria's oldest private concern devoted to vine grafting. This vine nursery was established along with a tree nursery in 1921 by Hans Schmidt, a trained gardener from Obernbreit.
From the very beginning, the propagation of vines for dessert grapes comprised an important part of the firms production. Older varieties that were once well known, such as Gros Colman, Früher Malinger, Muscat Hamburg and Gelbe Seidentraube have now almost entirely vanished from the scene.
In the meantime, the firm has passed into the hands of the third generation of the Schmidt family and specialises exclusively in vine propagation and growing.
Our main ranges, our vineyards, our specalisation
June 2003 New Field in the first year
Along with the production of vines for wine-growers, so-called grafted vines, we were among the first German firms concerned with vine grafting to specialise in the propagation and selling of fungus-resistant vines for dessert grapes.
In addition to our main ranges currently comprising about 15 varieties, which we deliver to garden centres, nurseries and plant dealers throughout Germany and neighbouring countries, we also offer a considerable side range of unusual and lesser-known varieties.
For retailers: please ask for our special range of plants.
Growing and cultivation of our vines
The source material for many of our varieties stems from our own state-recognised graft-cutting garden. As a result of scrupulous care and continuous monitoring of the stools, we ensure that the source material for propagation is healthy and of the highest quality.
The growing and cultivation of the vines takes place in greenhouses with an overall surface area of 2.500m2.
Our aim for the future
Our aim is to find and propagate even more interesting and resistant varieties of dessert grapes for you. For us, this also means taking into account planting locations where the climatic conditions are less favourable and the vegetation periods are comparatively short.
