Scott Davis

Marketing & Design

Scott is both the brains and brawn of our operation, strategy, design, and tech but he can also carry those heavy wine cases back from the vineyard. With over 30 years of experience in marketing, communication, and brand strategy, as well as WSET Level 2 certification, Scott is here to propel growth through innovative and creative strategies and oversees the vision of UK Fizz. Born and raised in Berkshire, Scott returned to the UK two years ago after living in the beautiful wine-rich Okanagan Valley, where he led global campaigns for some of the region’s most successful wineries. In his free time Scott enjoys exploring the peaks and valleys of the English countryside, and discovering new wine regions abroad. His favourite recent bottle experience was the Burgundy-style 2016 Martin’s Lane Simes Vineyard Pinot Noir – enjoyed overlooking the vine-laden slopes of Okanagan Lake.

Lindsay Balfour

Research & Communications

Lindsay grew up on the shores of Okanagan Lake and worked the vineyard and bottling line of the family-owned Cedar Creek Estate Winery until she was of legal age to taste it herself. Her love of food and wine has taken her around the world and back to school, where she earned a PhD in Cultural Studies, with a specific focus on hospitality. Lindsay oversees the writing and editing of creative content, our communications and client management, and event strategy. Along with Scott, she loves to travel and spend as much time as possible outdoors, seeking out new routes, foods, wines, and experiences along the way. Her favourite wine memory was at a restaurant in Tribeca, NYC, where an expertly paired 2017 Roland Lavantureux Chablis Grand Cru converted her into a Chardonnay believer.
