Cornwall: Camel Valley first to apply for PDO status


Bob Lindo, joint founder of Camel Valley Vineyards in Cornwall, has submitted the UK’s first single grower application for Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) recognition.  
 
The winery has applied to the EU, through DEFRA, for a PDO for a small area known by the historic field name of Darnibole.  Darnibole vineyard has an ancient slate sub soil; a steep south facing slope, and grows Bacchus grapes of exceptional quality.
 
The Lindos have set very strict criteria: 100% Bacchus from Darnibole, no acidification or de-acidification, no sweetening, higher natural alcohol, hand picking, must be made at the adjoining Camel Valley winery and most importantly, it must be compared with previous vintages to ensure typicity.
 
Said Bob Lindo: ‘All previous vintages of Darnibole Bacchus have won a Gold medal and critical acclaim, so there is something that we consider to be special about that small area.  It produces intense, steely Bacchus with a delicate restrained aroma.’
 
Camel Valley Darnibole Bacchus is served with the tasting menu at the 2 Michelin star Restaurant Nathan Outlaw.
