When ex-RAF pilot Bob Lindo and his wife Annie planted their first eight thousand vines in 1989, they never dreamed of the phenomenal success they would achieve within 2 decades. They had bought their farm in the heart of the Cornish countryside several years earlier, seeking a change from service life and the perfect place to bring up their young family, and initially farmed sheep and cattle.  Each summer they watched the grass turn brown on the sun-drenched slopes of the Camel Valley, and wondered if vines might enjoy such an aspect.

Second generation, Sam, is now in charge of winemaking and continues to grow and develop the reputation of Camel Valley. Said Bob: ‘I’d like to say I taught him everything he knows, but that wouldn’t be true! Like me he has a huge capacity for hard work, and is always up for trying something new. Sam worked at a top winery in New Zealand in 2006 and brought back a lot of what he learned there, for example the importance of cool temperatures for fermentation – he even installed his own system. We work well together as a team and are always bouncing ideas off each other.’

Whether you turn up in the middle of winter and someone opens the shop for you (as I have done) or whether you arrive on a sunny summer afternoon, you are always guaranteed a warm welcome at Camel Valley Vineyard.

Have a taste of wine and choose some bottles to take home and / or on to your holiday in Cornwall. In the summer you can sit on the terrace enjoying a glass and looking right over the vineyards. The vines right in front include those hand tended by Annie Lindo herself, which go into the award winning Annie’s Anniversary fizz.
