In the 1990s, Samantha Linter (Rodney and Janet's daughter) took over the running of the business and the winemaking. Sam and her brother Mark grew up on the vineyard at Bolney.
Originally qualified to become a hairdressing trainer, Sam decided that the profession was not for her. She always had a passion for good food and wine, so when she started wine studies at Plumpton College, Sam felt right at home.
It was a very busy time for her, working whilst studying, and also looking after two small children!
Sam has managed to make the wines of Bolney Estate a real success over the years, winning numerous awards and improving her technique year-on-year.
Sam's ethos as a winemaker is to produce the best quality wines possible, to work with the best grapes and to enhance what they offer naturally in terms character and flavour. She is a believer that local is best!
Bolney Wine Estate is extremely proud of the female influence behind its success and is looking forward to a bright future!
