Knightor is a working winery, wedding and events venue, nestled above St Austell Bay and a stones throw from the Eden Project. Aside from producing premium still and sparkling wines and Cornish vermouth, they host incredible feasts and celebrations using the finest local produce and award winning English wine. These feats fall on Friday evenings throughout the year and each feast is different from BBQ’s and world food menus to wine paired dinners. If the weather is good then feasts take place outside in the courtyard or around the grounds, for winter and wet weather feasts are held in the gorgeous vaulted barn.
Wine tours and tasting also take place at the Vineyard throughout the year so you can see witness the process of the wine making journey and sample some of the finest produce the winery makes.
Drop in and try what you like in the shop bar, with small sample measures available of their wines.
