Sharpham business packages

During the 2020 lockdown we looked for innovative new opportunities and worked with a number of businesses to develop bespoke cheese and wine events for co-workers and clients. We really enjoyed these projects and have more in the diary. People love cheese and wine and when offered the chance to enjoy both in the company of friends, colleagues or clients, it is an opportunity too good to be missed.

We can ‘tailor-make’ your cheese – or cheese and wine – experience to your specific needs but here are some ideas to get you thinking...
We can package up a lovely selection of cheese with all accompaniments and ship it to your boardroom with 24 hours' notice (within reason).
We can dispatch the wine and cheese packages to each of your guests with tasting notes and we can even join you for the tasting, virtually or in person when rules allow, and share some knowledge and fun.

Feedback from recent events

In December the pressure was on as we 'virtually' hosted 22 experts from International Wine & Food Society, led by Roger Ellis.

Just to say what an enjoyable evening. Derek was also impressed with the quality of the cheese and wine.

The cheeses and wines were delicious and I had a great time.

Great evening. Loads of cheese and well paired with the wines. The presenters did a superb job.

We enjoyed it a lot and were impressed by the quality and by the approach to pairing the various offerings.  Altogether a good evening.

A really excellent event. I thought that all the products were first class, and I learned a lot about cheese!

In November we 'virtually' hosted a group from Adobe including our first International guests from France & Germany.

(The French loved our Sharpham Brie!)

Thank you so much for a great event. Everyone had a lovely time and have been enjoying their leftovers all weekend!

24 Nov 2020. The Fire Surgery Lockdown Wine and Cheese Tasting Night.

The Fire Surgery has kicked off this year's Christmas Festivities with a tasting evening hosted by Greg and Tom from Sharphams Vineyard and Dairy.

These award winning Sharpham companies produce classic English Wines and Cheeses from their base on the Sharpham estate on the banks of the River Dart just south of Totnes in Devon.

Under current restrictions, this event was held virtually with everyone receiving a generous selection of goodies to their homes in advance.

It's safe to say that we all thoroughly enjoyed the evening although there may have been a slow start the next day for a few!

The feedback was very positive from the evening – even with a couple of the team having sore heads 😉. I have to say that Andy and I managed to polish off most of what you sent us in one sitting too – so delicious. Thank you for a very enjoyable evening and for kicking off our Christmas fun.

We hosted Blue Penguin Accountants and their clients in the winery at Sharpham in August 2020.

We took some clients out to Sharpham Cheese and Sharpham Wine for an excellent 'cheese and wine tasting experience' and a tour of the vineyards.

We sent 12 specially matched wine & cheese boxes with crackers, chutneys and tasting notes to a major bank's clients in June 2020.

The feedback from the clients was overwhelmingly positive and personally the set exceeded my expectations. Be assured that we have given your company details to our wider team as a few people have expressed interest in doing something similar.

Thank you so much again for your help and I hope we get to organise something with you again in the future.

We sent 60 cheese boxes to clients and colleagues for David in May 2020.

We feel that it has never been more important to support British businesses. We also wanted to say a small ‘thank you’ to our clients – make them smile in what is a very difficult time for everyone.

I am delighted that we chose to work with Sharpham Cheese by sending some cheese gift-boxes. The service was excellent (couldn’t fault it), the quality was outstanding and it couldn’t have been received any better. We received some really amazing messages back from our clients – the gift-boxes and the story behind it really resonated. Indeed, I understand that some were so impressed that they ordered some for their own family and friends.

We have sent the ‘normal’ items on occasions previously (wine, chocolates, vouchers). None were anywhere near as well received as the cheese. I’d urge any company who is thinking of client gifts or marketing exercises to try something different – do something that will genuinely make your clients happy. At the same time, you’ll be pleased that you are doing your bit to help one of the very best British food industries (I personally believe that high quality British cheese like this rivals any in the world).
