Camel Valley Vineyard

Last updated: 28 April, 2024

This family-run, state-of-the-art vineyard, set in some of Cornwall’s most beautiful countryside, has been producing award-winning wines since 1989. With south-facing slopes and mild climate of the Camel Valley, conditions are perfect for growing grapes; the result – high-quality sparkling wines that have won numerous awards, including the Gold Medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards in 2019.

Sparkling wines produced include their flagship Cornwall Brut and Pinot Noir Rosé Brut, and Annie’s Anniversary – a single-vineyard wine made from vines exclusively pruned by co-founder Annie Lindo for over 30 years. They also produce a range of still wines, including Bacchus Dry, Pinot Noir Rosé, and Atlantic Dry. All of their wines are made using traditional methods and are crafted with care, resulting in wines that are crisp, refreshing, and elegant.

Book ahead for guided tours of the vineyard and the chance to wine taste of some of England’s best wines. Well-behaved children are permitted.
