Autumn Business Club

It was great to see so many local businesses at our Autumn Business Club meeting on 30th September at the Calancombe Estate, the first in nearly two years! 

It was a fantastic turnout despite the distinctly Autumnal weather. We had a fabulous dinner from local caters in Kingsbridge, Samphire Foods And a fascinating behind the scenes tour of the winery and distillery from chief winemaker Olly Shaw, who took us through a wine tasting of the estate’s Pinot Noir and the 2-3 year process for making their award-winning Blanc de Noirs sparkling wine!

We also heard from Lance and Caroline Whitehead about their Calancombe journey, which started in 2011 – the obstacles they’ve overcome, what drives their passion for producing fantastic wines (awards and happy customers!) and their exciting plans for the future! 

We launched our two new grant schemes, Ignite which you can find more about here and Dress to Impress phase 2 that you can find out about here.

Please do share this with anyone that you think might be interested.

Our next business club meeting will be 25th November 2021 TBC. If you’d like to know more and be added to our mailing list please contact us here: mailto:
