Vine wood is, unlike most wand woods, not taken from a tree but from the stem of the vine plant. According to Mr Ollivander, "the druids considered anything with a woody stem as a tree, and vine makes wands of such a special nature that [he has] been happy to continue their ancient tradition. Vine wands are among the less common types, and [Mr Ollivander has] been intrigued to notice that their owners are nearly always those witches or wizards who seek a greater purpose, who have a vision beyond the ordinary and who frequently astound those who think they know them best. Vine wands seem strongly attracted by personalities with hidden depths, and [he has] found them more sensitive than any other when it comes to instantly detecting a prospective match. Reliable sources claim that these wands can emit magical effects upon the mere entrance into their room of a suitable owner, and [Mr Ollivander has] twice observed the phenomenon in [his] own shop.[1]

Hermione Granger is known to own a vine wand.
