A Cornish vineyard says the recent weather has been so perfect that it's had its best year yet.

Camel Valley at Bodmin has begun picking and pressing the season's grapes. The owners say the warm climate and little rain we've had should make this their best year since they started 25 years ago.

Grapes pressed this week should be ready for bottling and drinking by Easter next year.
