Camel Valley Vineyards are situated on the sunny slopes above the River Camel - halfway between the Atlantic and Channel coasts.  24000 vines are now grown on the south-facing side of the Camel Valley . Traditional vineyard practices combined with a New World approach to wine making ensure high quality red, white and sparkling wines are produced.

Bob__Sam_Lindo.JPG 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 numerous national and international awards and have been used to represent Cornwall at many prestigious events at home and abroad. Camel Valley has won 3 International Wine Challenge trophies including the International Trophy for the best rosé sparkling wine in the world, a feat twice repeated at the World Sparkling Wine Championships in Verona.  They've also won Decanter World Wine Awards Gold Medals, the Waitrose Trophy, the South West Business Award for creating wealth in tjhe rural community and numerous Gold tourism awards.  Sam Lindo has won UK Winemaker of the Year 3 times in the last 5 years and runner up in the other 2 years. 

Camel Valley is the first UK vineyard to be awarded PDO status for a demarcated area known as Darnibole.  Darnibole Bacchus is served at Nathan Outlaw's 2 Michelin star restaurant and tasting menu.

In 2012 Sam Lindo was invited to 10 Downing Street by the Prime Minister and Camel Valley wines were served at the official reception for Britain's top chefs and food producers.  2012 also saw Camel Valley wines served to HM The Queen, both at Buckingham Palace and at Jubilee lunches and receptions.
