Knightor

The Vineyard

Knightor is spread between two vineyards on the Southern Cornish coastline with a combined size of 58 acres. In order to guarantee the best quality of fruit, they ensure to carefully hand harvest every year.

Planted in 2007, Porthscatho is is positioned on gentle south facing slopes. Drainage here is good due to the loam, gravel and schist that the vines are planted on. On this site they have plantings of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Noir PrΓ©coce, Bacchus, Seyval Blanc, Madeline Angevine amongst others including a trial of Riesling.

Planted a year earlier in 2006, the Seaton vineyard contains Seyval Blanc, Rondo and Auxerrois.  Like Portscatho, this site is low in fertility and on loam. Also planted on slopes, Seaton becomes considerably steeper towards the lower end of the vineyard, ensuring great drainage which is vital in this Atlantic maritime climate.
