About us

At Knightor we make premium quality, limited production English wines from grapes grown in English vineyards and our own vines at Portscatho and Seaton on the south Cornish coast.

A relatively hands-off approach to winemaking is taken. Although inspiration is taken from both old and new world, there is no desire to mimic. With English wine, the difference is generally the lightness and elegance of style – this is our hallmark and what we do best. 

Our marginal climate gives low grape yields that maximise taste but increase cost so we only make still and sparkling rose and white wines that are true to the fruit and retain an elegance that is part of the inherent character of English wine.
Not surprisingly they are a great match for the wonderful seafood
that abounds in Cornwall. Also great as aperitifs their range and versatility may surprise you. Nathan Outlaw's sommelier said "Their Trevannion is completely different in style and has an incredible depth of flavour, enough to stand up to curry!" Mena Hweg with its taut balance of sweetness and acidity is a favourite with autumn fruit desserts and light cheeses like Cornish Blue or Yarg. Our sparkling wines are dry yet surprise with their fruit weight. Perfect for celebrations, like weddings where they bring a taste of the magic of Cornwall
