A year of triumphs. We have had lots to celebrate this year including five Taste of the West Awards and two awards from United Kingdom Vineyards Association. We are very proud of the Awards we received this year, it’s great for the whole team here at Polgoon to have all their hard work recognised and the innovation and passion that has gone into making the new products and wines. From Taste of the West we won a Gold Award for their Berry Cider, a Silver Award for the Cornish Pink and Cornish Black Ciders and two Bronze Awards for Sparkling Raspberry Aval and 2012 Vintage Red Wine. From the United Kingdom Vineyards Association we won two Bronze Awards in the English and Welsh wine of the year competition for their 2012 Vintage Rosé Wine and 2012 Vintage White Wine. To be awarded Bronze awards for our 2012 vintage wines is truly marvellous, the award is judged by 7 masters of wine so this is a massive accolade. With all the fantastic weather we have had this year we cannot wait to see what the 2013 Vintage brings. It’s not just the awards we’ve got to celebrate, before the start of the summer our onsite shop expanded and now a shop and deli hosts an array of local produce which I’m sure most of you already ready know but just to remind you. The local delights include Cornish Sea Salt, Chocolate from Nikki Grant, herbs and spices from Halzephron, lots of local cheeses and cured meats, the list goes on and on. The Vineyard is open all year round seven days a week for regular tastings, the shop is now full of great Christmas presents, hampers and of course lots of wine and cider. We are also hosting Christmas trees from 1st December so a perfect place for all your Christmas shopping. See you soon Kim x
