Back in March I met and photographed the owner of Cornish Wine Tours Kate McBurnie and we have just updated her profile imagery with some bright and summery images. If you are wondering what Cornish Wine Tours is all about basically as Kate puts it:
Its a day of wine tasting while being driven around, eating the best local produce, and admiring the views – whats not to like?
I asked Kate to tell us a little bit about herself for the people who do not know of her and her business. This blog features some of our imagery taken at Camel Valley Vineyard, Trevibban Mill and Appletons bar & restaurant.
My name is Kate and I own and run Cornish Wine Tours from my hometown of Padstow. I started the business this year and started the tours at Easter. On a Cornish Wine Tour we visit up to three locations in a day, to include Camel Valley, Knightor Winery, Trevibban Mill and Bosue. We also run separate events with Polgoon Vineyard near Penzance. Each tour finishes with a beautiful lunch served at Trevibban Mill, and depending on what type of tour it is this will be served either at Appletons (onsite restaurant) or in the winery bar itself. The tours run up until November, but can be requested throughout the winter months.
The tour aims to provide guests with a day of wine tasting in a friendly and enjoyable environment where you don’t have the hassle or worry about driving. Everything is fully catered for throughout the day and guests can sit back and relax. Each vineyard is different and offers a different experience and on this tour you can get a feel for the Cornish Wines in one day, and what Cornwall has to offer. The day is fully guided by myself, but in a very relaxed way, and guests can ask as many or as little questions as they want. This isn’t like going back to school, it’s an informal environment which is a lot of fun, and its the best way to learn about the different styles of wine produced in this country.
