My name is Russell Paine, when I set up Clipper Wines the aim was to bring a fresh approach and greater quality to the wines offered to us in Hotels, Restaurants and Bars. Since then I've worked exclusively with a group of prestigious, local, independent businesses creating bespoke wine lists for them and supplying hand picked wines from leading producers. On the 21st of March our entire customer base closed for who knows how long? Orders stopped and along with that so did all our income. As things look the re-opening of the Hospitality Sector is going to be some time away.
On the flip side, since that closure, I’ve had the real pleasure of meeting and sharing our wine with some new, enthusiastic and passionate Private Clients. Their feedback has been amazing and truly affirming and is very much appreciated. Being able to develop these contacts and spread the Clipper name wider would be an exciting new course to take. So, the aim is to raise some extra funding to develop a combined website and educational resource which will make the Private Client experience easier and more rewarding. This will also help ensure the Clipper ship is still afloat once we start to see the sun rising over the post Covid-19 horizon.
By joining us now with a pledge, you will become part of the Clipper Cru and will play your part in helping us navigate these uncharted and choppy waters. In return you will be the first to receive a range of special offers, discounts and tasting invitations when we set sail again. In the meantime, if you are locked-in and find yourself in need of mixed case 'Wine Care Package' we have a wide range of wines we can get to you immediately to help you through these stormy waters. Just choose that instant reward and we will do the rest.
Come on board, join the Cru and enjoy the fascinating jouney to come!
