Somehow one would think that Cornwall, with its mild climate, would be the home of English wine. But it has not worked out like that - there are only a small number of vineyards in Cornwall, perhaps the vines do not like the sea air, perhaps there are no suitable sites
The Camel Valley Vineyard is the pick of the Cornish vineyards at the moment. They have won many prestigeous awards, and their sparking wine in particular stands up against the best in the world. Bob Lindo at Camel Valley Vineyard wines has been very successful in producing good quality wines - For a fuller description of this well run vineyard follow this link.
