The Story

Knightor is owned and run by Adrian Derx, a passionate and ever smiling wine lover who has thrown everything he has to pursue his dream of owning a vineyard and producing great wine.

Inspired by his Grandfather's roots in Italian viticulture, Adrian left his successful career in IT in order to plant 2 Cornish vineyards in Porthscatho and Seaton. A winery followed in 2011, after the purchase of a historic set of farm buildings close to St Austell. 

Since their first vintage in 2012, Knightor has gone from strength to strength, winning critical acclaim for many of their wines.
