We are saddened to announce the passing of Lord Samuel Vestey.

The image here shows Lord Vestey exactly one year ago on this day inspecting the vintage at Coombe Farm.

Sam wished to continue the legacy left by his mother Pamela Lady Vestey for Coombe to pass onto current and future generations the story of Dame Nellie Melba his great grandmother. Along with the establishment of the vineyard, the estate was opened to the public in September 2014 after the buildings were converted by Sam and his late brother Mark.

He was extremely proud of Coombe and when visiting loved nothing more than to meet visiting guests.

A true gentleman and genuine lovely man, he will be sorely missed by all at Coombe
