Bodmin has one very palatable asset; an award winning vineyard! Camel Valley wines have been producing a vast selection of wines and sparkling wines for over 20 years and this working attraction offers visitors the chance to sample a number of their stunning creations and then buy them in the shop after the tour.
There’s one simple secret behind the success of the Camel Valley wines and that’s the location of the vineyard. The slopes peer over the Camel River below and they’re in a great position for enjoying as much sunshine as possible throughout the year. Add to that the traditional techniques used throughout the vineyard and you’ve got a recipe for home-grown wine that always stands out from its rivals.
The tours of the vineyard may be fascinating but the highlight of every visit is the opportunity to sit back on the terrace and sample the produce while you admire the views. There’s a relaxed feel to the tours, and the Camel Valley Vineyard is an unpretentious, engaging way to learn more about wines in a beautiful setting.
