When ex-RAF pilot Bob Lindo and his wife Annie planted their first eight thousand vines in 1989, they never dreamed of the phenomenal success they would achieve within 2 decades. They had bought their farm in the heart of the Cornish countryside several years earlier, seeking a change from service life and the perfect place to bring up their young family, and initially farmed sheep and cattle. They made the decision to plant vines instead, Bob studied viticulture and they set about dedicating their lives to the vineyard. This passion and hard work paid off, when in In 2002 Bob and Annie won the Waitrose Drinks Producer of the Year Award, and the following year the South West Business Challenge award for Creating Wealth in the Rural Community. Their finest moment came in 2005 with an International Wine Cha And now the second generation winemaker is hard at work at Camel Valley. Sam Lindo, 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 eight years ago. He has now taken over as Winemaker, with a little help from Dad now and again, and in 2007 won âUK Winemaker of the Year Award, as well as the Wine of the Year Trophy, and Sparkling Wine Trophy in the UK Vineyards annual competition for English wines judged solely by Masters of Wine.' Sam retained the coveted âVintners Trophy' for the best UK English sparkling wine and another 3 Trophies in 2008.Camel Valley wines are sold in many prestigious restaurants such as Hakkasan, and Rick Steins restaurant in Padstow.
