Wine List

With sustainability and traceability becoming ever more important in the world we live in today, we have worked hard to develop a wine list that is not only chosen to enhance our menus created by Head Chef Dorian Janmaat and his team in the kitchen, but is good for the environment, supports many small, family-owned wineries and, dare we say, might, possibly, even be good for you!

Many of the wines are certified organic or biodynamic, but not exclusively so. Some we know do work organically but are too small and others too stubborn to get officially certified. Others are in the process of meeting all the rigorous requirements to reach full certification. Several are carbon neutral, with one winery even having its own hydro-electric power station and has produced enough energy to supply the entire winery and some of the surrounding area since 1910 – yes, you read that correctly, producing its own power for over a century!
We have also sourced wines from closer to home, actually from right here in Cornwall, limiting the food miles that it takes to get some fabulous wines into our cellar and into your glass. Knightor and Trevibban Mill are both making exceptional sparkling and still wines and we urge you to try them! If you fancy a day out, we can highly recommend a visit to Trevibban Mill Winery, located just outside Padstow. Tours of the vineyard and winery are available.

Finally, we also have a selection of wines that are just too good not to have on our list. A handful of absolute classics, a few wines that are David & Karen’s personal favourites or just some great wines that we think you really need to taste!
