A Cornish winery has won a listing on Great Western Railway (GWR) trains for its sparkling wine.
Passengers on the Great Western Railway Pullman dining car can now raise a glass of Knightor Brut Classic Cuvee as they enjoy the picturesque scenery of the south west.
Knightor, an award-winning winery near St Austell, was selected to provide the sparkling wine by GWR food ambassador and Devon restauranteur Mitch Tonks and his wine merchant Sommelier’s Choice; Trevannion – a still wine from Knightor – was listed on the Pullman last year.
Adrian Derx, owner of Knightor Winery, said: “It’s a real honour for us to represent the West Country in this way.
“There are so many excellent wines being made in the region now, and local bubbles are a great match for the delicious food served on-board the Pullman.”
Jo Elliott, head of customer engagement at GWR, said: “We were absolutely delighted to list the lovely Trevannion last year, and even more excited to add the Knightor Brut in time for spring 2016.
“Adrian puts real passion into making his wines and I am very pleased to able to showcase these two in this way.”
