A Taste of Penzance
Experience an indulgent day out with a vineyard tour and Cornish cream tea.
Treat your tastebuds to a tour of Penzance, beginning with Polgoon vineyard and its award-winning sparkling wines.

Tour and tea; Trereife House
Step into history at Trereife House with a tour of the manor house and grounds. Tours are led by the owner of the house, Tim le Grice, and are followed by a Cornish cream tea. Discover the fascinating history of this iconic property, including stories about its previous owners and links with poets. Trereife House is open by appointment in the winter months.
Winter vineyard tours; Polgoon
Polgoon produces award-winning sparkling wines, ciders and fruit juices. You could pop into the shop and buy a bottle or two, but for a deeper understanding of what they do, it’s worth booking a tour. In the winter months, the vineyard offers a slower pace of tour, during which you’ll explore the indoor production areas, learn about the grape varieties and try five different wines.
