A sparkling ending to a fabulous year for Bolney Wine Estate

January 1st, 2018


Bolney Wine Estate’s Managing Director and Head winemaker, Sam Linter has been awarded the Medium Business of the Year Award at the prestigious Business Women Excellence awards for Sussex. This latest accolade is more proof of Bolney’s growing influence in both the wine and business worlds.

Along with successfully running Bolney Wine Estate, Sam has been an integral influence in shaping the success of the English wine industry. From the 1990’s Sam has been heavily involved in associations and councils, championing the English wine category to the UK and Export.

As pioneers of English wine, today, under Sam’s leadership the Estate produces a portfolio of over fifteen award-winning wines.

Sam Linter commented: ‘After 22 years of working hard to make this business successful, it is fantastic to be honoured with this great award. It meant a lot to me to be able to share the moment with my valued staff.’

This is not the only accolade they received to finish the year off in style, their most recent award wins at the ‘The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly’ competition, judged by high profile chefs, wine buyers, sommeliers and consumers and the International Wine Challenge competition.
