you can get them from the nectary they are plants you harvest there are allso some at the old nectary which i believe is for sale now in the game, you harvest them think you get 3 grapes per plant . just go to nectary click on the plants until it says meloire grapes then harvest . hope this helps.
You can only harvest Renoit, Chermola Blan, and Avalino.. whatever grapes from the fields at the nectary. The rest of the grape types can be bought from the special merchant (but there is a visa level requirement... you can see the special merchant's selection even if they are greyed out) or harvested in tombs (the Chateau Vault or Faerie Tomb for instance).
Edit: oh, and maybe some back yards around town... take a walk through sims' yards and look for harvestables. Another place has occurred to me. Look in the garden of the mansion up past the graveyard.

...off to play and check this so-far overlooked location out.
Thanks SketchElder; that was some really good advice. First trip out to France with a new sim, on the day of arrival and I got 21 meloire and 21 renoit grapes at the Old Nectary. I guess I just dismissed it when I realised it was an empty house for purchase.
Most work related opportunities are completed when your sim next goes to work with the required items in their inventory so you might just have to wait until your sim's next work day. If that's not the issue then the opportunity might require a particular quality of grapes before it can be completed (in which case your sim might have to plant the grapes and grow higher quality ones), the descriptions aren't always clear on this point. Another possibility is that there's a bug that is causing the grapes harvested in France not to count for the opportunity (this usually happens with tasks requiring delivery of item to foreign countries, such as the painting tasks), in which case you would be best to plant the grapes and grow them. If your sim doesn't have the skill to plant the grapes then you could cheat to get access to a plant (it'd be "Normal" quality), press ctrl+shift+c then type "testingcheatsenabled true" followed by "buydebug on" (both without quotes) and then you should be able to find plants in the hidden items section of Buy Mode "Sorted by Function" and can place one or two of those (at home or on another lot using Edit Town if you want).
