Double A Vineyards Inc. of Fredonia New York is pleased to announce the acquisition of Concord Nurseries grapevine production business. Concord nurseries have been a major producer of grapevines in the Eastern United States under the Foster Grapevine brand. The acquisition of Concord’s grapevines business will help solidify Double A Vineyards position as the premier supplier of vines for much of the US market. “The acquisition is a great fit for the company,” said Dennis Rak President of Double A Vineyards, adding that he looks forward to providing Concord’s customers with quality products and service. The additional production and 225 acres of land will allow Double A Vineyards to move forward more rapidly with its plans to produce high quality disease free plants that meet the new Federal National Clean Plant Network standards. This is a long term project that will require planting new bud wood vineyards and growing the material under strict guidelines to produce high quality clean stock. The high standards used in this program will greatly increase the quality of the plants available. It is anticipated that this next generation of clean vines will help growers produce higher yields and quality in their vineyards.
