“If you’re off to Cornwall, try to visit Camel Valley Vineyard, near Bodmin, which is one of Britain’s best. Ace fizz…” Joanna Simon – Sunday Times Style
When ex-RAF pilot Bob Lindo and his wife Annie planted their first eight thousand vines in 1989, they never dreamed of the phenomenal success they would achieve within 2 decades. Today their son Sam has taken over as head winemaker and has enjoyed his own great success winning the “UK Winemaker of the Year” trophy 3 times and has been runner up for the IWC “International Sparkling Wine Maker of the Year.”
Camel Valley Vineyard is situated on sunny slopes above the River Camel – halfway between the Atlantic and the south coast. Traditional vineyard practices combined with a modern approach to wine making ensure high quality rosé, white and sparkling wines from the 24,000 vines growing outside on the south facing hillside of the Camel Valley. The area’s mild climate, concentration of clear sunlight and pure air give Camel Valley wines a distinctively fresh Cornish style.
Our state of the art winery and winemaking expertise enable us to capture all the delicate flavours and aromas of the finest handpicked grapes. The crisp, clean white wines and luscious rosés enhance the flavours of many fish and meat dishes, and also make an excellent aperitif.
Camel Valley still wines are fresh and fruity with a wonderful aroma, while Camel Valley “Cornwall” Brut is Cornwall’s first and finest sparkling wine. Made in the traditional method, the multi-award winning “Cornwall” is perfect for all celebrations. The range of sparkling wines include white, rosé and occasionally red as well as our fabulously indulgent white Pinot Noir. All our wines are suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Camel Valley wines have consistently won top major national and international awards including the International Wine Challenge (IWC) and Decanter World Wine Awards, and proudly collected the 2010 IWC Trophy for the Best Sparkling Rosé in the World.
