Cornish Red and White Wines
- Tours, Sales and Tastings

Camel Valley Vineyards are situated on the sunny slopes above the River Camel - halfway between the Atlantic and Channel coasts. Traditional vineyard practices combined with a New World approach to wine making ensure high quality red and white wines from the 8,000 vines growing outside on the sunny south-facing side of the Camel Valley.

The area's mild climate, concentration of clear sunlight, and pure air give Camel Valley wines a distinctive fresh Cornish style. The wines have won several awards and have been used to represent Cornwall at the House of Lords, the Southampton Boat Show, C.B.I. Conference, and many other prestigious events at home and abroad.

The crisp clean white wines enhance the flavours of many fish and white meat dishes, also make an excellent aperitif. Camel Valley red wines, fresh and fruity with a beautiful colour, are unique in Cornwall. All the wines are suitable for vegetarians.

When ex-RAF pilot Bob Lindo and his wife Annie planted their first vines in 1989, they never dreamed of the phenomenal success they would achieve within two decades. In 2002 Bob and Annie won the Waitrose Drinks Producer of the Year Award, and the following year the South West Business Challenge award for Creating Wealth in the Rural Community. In 2006 the Cornwall Tourist Board awarded Bob an award for outstanding services to tourism in Cornwall, and the vineyard won Gold for Cornish Distinctiveness three times. In 2002 his son Sam joined the family business and in 2009 Sam Lindo won the Trophy and a Gold Medal in the International Wine Challenge for Camel Valley Bacchus.

On the 16th July 2014 the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall visited Camel Valley Vineyard as part of a three day tour of Cornwall.
