Exceptional Wines Made in Cornwall
Knightor Winery is a producer of premium quality English still and sparkling wines, located in mid Cornwall, a stones throw from the Eden Project.
Set in a tranquil location above St Austell Bay, Knightor Winery is positioned within 4 acres of beautiful Cornish pasture, orchard and hedgerows. Using grapes grown in our vineyards in Portscatho and Seaton on the South Cornish coast, as well as other English vineyards, we create limited production still, sparkling wines and our very own English Vermouth.
Although craft, artisan and micro would apply to us, we think of ourselves as both uncompromising and innovative. In wine making weather and climate are king and each year varies, so we make multiple blends and single varietal wines often in short runs of less than 2000 bottles. This allows the grapes to express themselves. Cool ferments and light touches of oak where it adds value, with careful blending or ageing to achieve depth and balance.
The cool climate and low yields allow us to produce lighter, fruitier, lower abv wines with good acidity that are refreshing as an aperitif and shockingly good with food. Minimal intervention means all our wines are vegan friendly, low in sulphates and the sweetness comes from fruit, not sugar.
Through years of innovation and research using our base wines and local herbs we have also created a family of English Vermouths. Rich and intense aromas and flavours make them great in cocktails and perfect as a spritz or aperitif.
If you are looking to experiment and try new English wines with lighter styles or different varieties then you are in the right place! And if buying as a gift our beautifully printed labels with classic Cornish branding are sure to impress.
