Riversun have strict guidelines in place for a safe nursery operation

Riversun Nursery meets the COVID-19 criteria as an Essential Service (nurseries producing grape vines, fruit trees and vegetable plants for commercial production).

We are working closely with NZ Plant Producers (NZPPI) to adhere to the Government's strict guidelines to manage any risk to our teams through procedures and processes for a safe nursery operation.

New Zealand’s premium supplier of certified plant material

We are New Zealand's leading supplier of certified grafted grapevines to many of this country's top vineyards.

Established in 1982, the Gisborne company has forged strong alliances with the New Zealand wine industry. Throughout its evolution, the nursery's goal has remained constant: to provide plant material that is true to type, of high health and known virus status, and produced to exacting physical specifications. 

Riversun's vines are grafted to the New Zealand Winegrowers Grafted Grapevine Standard, developed in consultation with viticulture nurseries. Full details of the specifications and other requirements of the standard can be viewed on the New Zealand Winegrowers website (
