The quality of Cornish wine has been underlined with Camel Valley’s latest success at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2010.
Despite a record number of entries from producers across the globe, Camel Valley Vineyard, based at Nanstallon just outside Bodmin, received a silver medal for its Bacchus dry white wine, as well as three bronze medals and a commended award for four other wines in their range.
Winemaker Sam Lindo commented: “It’s really great to achieve this consistent level of success with our wines and these awards are a credit to everyone working here at Camel Valley. It clearly shows what is possible to achieve in the UK.”
Christelle Guibert, Decanter’s tastings director, added: “This is a fantastic result for UK wines and further proof should anyone need it, that home-produced bottles can compete at an international level.
“Camel Valley should be very proud of what they have achieved. It is a delight to be able to showcase them in our globally recognised competition.”
