CORNISH VINEYARD APPLIES FOR PROTECTED STATUS UNDER EUROPEAN LAW
7 February 2012
An award-winning vineyard in Cornwall is applying for protected status under European Union law for one of its wines, its owners have confirmed.
The Camel Valley Vineyard near Bodmin was founded by Bob and Annie Lindo in 1989, who are now looking for Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) recognition for its world famous Darnibole Wine.
Having beaten champagne makers including Bollinger at the Bollicine del Mondo wine competition in Verona, Italy, the white wine is looking to join illustrious company in the form of Cornish Pasties and Cornish Clotted Cream, which are also protected by European law.
Should the application for protected status be successful, it will further demonstrate the unique, high quality Cornish cuisine typical of the beautiful county, which has become a premier holiday destination in Britain over the years.
Stunning views, beautiful beaches and cultured cuisine await those planning a stay in some the 5 star Cornwall accommodation this year.
