Stumbled across this little vineyard on our Cornish travels, thought we had to have a look - great decision! The guided tour was informative, and was followed by gorgeous wine tasting. Shoutout to the guy that showed us around! Bought a load of cider and wine from the shop on the way out too. Highly recommend!

We stopped off at Polgoon Vineyard as we like to try local produce whilst holidaying and we were interested in English wine. We were not disappointed. We did not do the tour as the weather was dreadful. However we popped into the shop and were instantly offered samples of the wine. It did not disappoint. We bought white, a lot... More

We called it here to try and fine that elusive British wine - a decent red - and failed. Having said that we did find some very pleasant white and bought some to take home.

The holiday cottage on the vineyard is a real home from home. Kim, John and all the staff are very welcoming and friendly and leave you a welcome pack of Polgoon goodies!! The cottage is also dog friendly and they are more than happy to check on your dog if you go out for the day, in fact I know... More

You don't have to be a wine expert to find this tour really interesting. The owners (John and Kim) started out with no prior knowledge of vineyard management and has worked hard to make the place a success. His passion is really evident, and the wines I tried were stunning - more fruit than you usually get in English wines,... More

We went on the vineyard and orchard tour with tasting afterwards- this was really interesting and good fun. Informative talk while we were on the tour and during tastings. Their wines and ciders are delicious, great for at home and also for gifts. Shop is packed full of other local foods for sale as well as their drinks. Would recommend... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour at Polgoon. It was very interesting to explore the vineyard and to taste the different wines and cider which they produce. It really is worth a visit.

Stayed in Polgoon's holiday cottage for a 3 night stay in April 2014. The cottage is well equipped and was just perfect for our short stay in Penzance. The local produce supplied as a welcome package was a very nice touch - cheese, pickle, eggs, milk, bread, Polgoon Cider. Could not fault the cottage. The owners were extremely helpful before...

We arrived too late for a tour, so only visited the shop, but the friendly member of staff was more than happy to chat about the vineyard and let us sample some of the cider and the wine. We came away with a number of bottles and a rose glow in our cheeks! Next time we are back we are... More

We first discovered Polgoon in 2009 and returned again in 2010 on our next stay in Cornwall. So, apart from our love of this part of Cornwall, revisiting Polgoon was one of the main reasons for our return to Penzance. On our previous visits our purchases were made in one of the production buildings but this time we were delighted... More
