Owner description: POLGOON BY JOHN COULSON, CORNISH WINEMAKER “I set up Polgoon Vineyard and Orchard with my wife Kim in 2006 and for the last 10 years we’ve been dedicated to producing artisan English wines, ciders and juices from our farm in Penzance. We were originally Fish Merchants in Newlyn, but this changed when we bought an overgrown, run down flower farm and started planting vines… ‘Polgoon’, Cornish for ‘Pond on the Downs’, is a word that describes the original setting of the location of the vineyard and orchard that sits on sunny hills, overlooking the sparkling sea of Mounts Bay. This unique position is reflected on our label that depicts an abstract view of the vines and the sea – two things we feel strongly connected to here at Polgoon. We have a wide range of award-winning still and sparkling wines, ciders and juices sold in outlets across Cornwall and the West Country. Our mild Cornish climate and unique Cornish terroir means that the grapes we grow here are the grapes we use in our wines – which means most of our wines are single estate, something that only a few English vineyards can claim. We have tours that run from April-October and it’s a great way to experience life on a Cornish vineyard, where we share our knowledge of growing vines and creating fine English (or should it be Cornish?) wines. These tastings give customers ideas about pairing wine and food as well as an appreciation for the character and depth of a wine. We also have a Vine House Kitchen serving fresh locally sourced food and a Vineyard Shop selling other local produce as well as our own. Please pop in and see us if you live locally or are planning a visit to this part of West Cornwall - we'd love to show you around our home and business."

Nice to see English wines are doing so well. Well worth a visit if you are looking for something unique and interesting.

I tasted the newly made Pinot Noir after chatting to the winemaker and actually tasted it before the owner had tried it! Not finished, but was obviously going to make a great vintage.

Very lovely champagne style cider but quite expensive and surprisingly found it cheaper to buy in local outlets rather than at the vineyard. The staff were very accommodating on our first visit last year but this year they didn't seem too bothered about us.
