Cornish success at World Wine Awards

Camel Valley winemaker Sam Lindo

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.”
