Polgoon Vineyard sits at the edge of Penzance on the Lands end road. Many of our customers are visitors to Cornwall who come back several times a year and think of Cornwall as a special place that evokes memories of holidays and family time together. Lots more of our customers are locals who when they go to visit relatives out of county like to take a little piece of Cornwall with them as a special gift. When we found ourselves in lockdown last year we found one of the most overwhelming themes for us and our customers was wanting to connect with our loved ones near and far and just let them know we were thinking of them even if we couldn’t see them.
As well as the wines, ciders and juices we make on the farm here at Polgoon we also stock a small selection of local products from in and around the area, local chutneys that my Mum makes, honey from my dad’s beehives on the farm, Cornish charcuterie, Joshs chocolates, Boddington berries preserves to name just a few. We started with a small hamper, our Little piece of Cornwall that customer could purchase online and send anywhere around the UK just to let their friends and family know they were thinking of them. With further lockdowns we have added to the selection and have had great reviews from the people receiving them around the country. Hopefully they are little gifts to make you smile and remember a loved one or that special trip to Cornwall and hopefully it won’t be too long before we are all back together again enjoying the stunning place where we are lucky enough to have our home.
