It’s not easy to escape the crowds in Cornwall in summer, but down a narrow, winding track near Bodmin sits the ordered, sun-dappled tranquillity of Camel Valley winery. The first vines were planted at the former sheep farm by Bob and Annie Lindo in 1989 and it remains a family affair. I was greeted by Sam Lindo, the owners’ son and award-winning chief winemaker, who grew up among the vines and now gives an enthusiastic and well-informed daily tour of the vineyard (including one field that has been hand-pruned exclusively by his mother since 1989 – a plaque commemorates her 100,000th vine pruned), as well as the wine-making process, from picking to bottling. After the tour comes an unguided tasting of four of Camel Valley’s core wines – two still, two sparkling – on the terrace, a simple sun trap with views across gently sloping vines into the valley. The highlight? Its world-champion sparkling pinot noir rosé, which tastes of strawberries and summer.
