Knightor Vineyard

Knightor Winery is a producer of premium quality English wine, located in Cornwall.

In a tranquil location above St Austell Bay, Knightor Winery is set in 4 acres of beautiful Cornish pasture, orchard and hedgerows. Using their grapes grown in Portscatho and Seaton, they have crafted unique still wines, sparkling wines and a range of English Vermouths.

Led by winemaker David Brocklehurst, the wines are uncompromising and innovative. In wine making weather and climate are king and each year varies, David makes multiple blends and single varietal wines often in short runs of less than 2000 bottles. The cool climate and low yields produce lighter, fruitier, lower alcohol wines with good acidity that are refreshing and good with food. Minimal intervention means their wines are vegan friendly, low in sulphates and the sweetness comes from fruit, not sugar.

Harvest Thoughts

2021 was a challenging year. One that makes you consider how sensible it is to grow grapes in this country. The summer was cool and wet, which meant disease pressure was always high. Downy mildew regularly showing itself in both the Knightor vineyards. Not only this but the ripening period September through to October was also relatively cool and again saw periods of prolonged rain. The fruit was average at best, with low sugar levels across the board and very light, delicate flavours. 2020 was a low yield but very high quality, 2021 was low yield and down there with the poorest years of recent, easily comparable to the wash out that was the 2013 harvest.

From a wine making perspective, after a couple of harvests of low yields we would quite happily settle for a decent crop in 2022.
