Sam Olive

Wine Director. Sam came to Hampton Manor with a mission to introduce a culture of learning and talking about wine, putting that stiff upper lip to bed. After about 12 years in the wine industry he launched his own business, Wine Freedom, which champions natural, biodynamic, and organic wines. He’s now set up shop from the Manor’s cellars, brining with him fresh direction and an accessible style. Sam’s committed to sourcing wines that have not been messed around with and reflect the land and climate where the grapes started out. His main aim is to get off the beaten track and discover the wine makers who really care. The results are small batches of delicious wine.
