FIRST ENGLISH SPARKLING WINE TO BE AWARDED A ROYAL WARRANT
The family run vineyard, Camel Valley has been awarded a Royal Warrant, by Command of His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales. The warrant has been granted for the supply of English sparkling wines.
Camel Valley wines have been served on numerous Royal occasions and over many years. They were on the menu at the State Banquet held at Buckingham Palace last July in honour of the King and Queen of Spain and served at a star-studded reception to celebrate the Duchess of Cornwall’s birthday at Clarence House the following day.
Bob Lindo, who along with his wife Annie founded Camel Valley Vineyard, based in Bodmin, Cornwall, said: “We are delighted, it’s a great honour and we are very proud to be the first ‘By Royal Appointment’ English Sparkling Wine.
“It’s a great honour for Camel Valley and it speaks for the whole industry that there is now an English sparkling wine ranked alongside some of the finest suppliers of wines to the Royal Household.”
The criteria for the award of a Royal Warrant are strict, with an emphasis on consistent supply over at least 7 years and a high emphasis on sustainability.
Among others, Camel Valley were awarded the Cornwall Sustainability Awards ‘2017 best managed Small Business’ trophy. https://www.camelvalley.com/awards
