The BHU is hosts a grape cultivar / variety genetic library.

The genetic library was established in 2010, and holds 600 selections ranging from vinifera and hybrids to table-grapes, labrusca types, and rootstocks.  Some selections are of the same variety, but herald from different locations, and therefore may have slightly different characteristics.

The vineyard is also the demonstration site of a range of non- tanalised / copper chromium arsenate (CCA) treated posts

For more information please email Dr Charles Merfield from the BHU / FFC.
