Sam Lindo is the second generation winemaker at Camel Valley. Sam, a maths graduate who had seemed destined for a career in the city, instead decided to make his life in Cornwall and returned to the family farm, where he had grown up, in 2002. Son of founder Bob Lindo, a retired RAF pilot, who with his wife, Annie, panted the first vines there in 1989. Whilst still a family business and all involved in the vineyards, it is now Sam that is at the forefront, making the recent award winning wines. Sam is 3 times UK Winemaker of the Year and IWC Runner Up Best World Sparkling Winemaker of the Year.
