Our Team

A shared love of winemaking

The success of Candover Brook is in large part due to the wonderful team who care for the land, tend to our vines and hand pick the grapes. Some, like Samuel Philippot our vineyard manager, have grown up around wine. Samuel was born in the Languedoc region of France, surrounded by vineyards. He studied agronomy, viticulture and oenology in the South of France before embarking on a career devoted to the craft. Others have developed a love of winemaking through working with us at Preston where, at peak times, up to sixty people are employed on the land. Our hope is that more of the local community will become involved in the work of the vineyard, so if you live locally and might be keen to work with us, do get in touch at office@candoverbrook.co.uk.
