Digby Fine English
Founded by Trevor Clough and Jason Humphries, Digby Wine Estates produces sparkling wines only, focused on the traditional Champagne varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
Grapes for the Digby range are sourced from the best vineyards in the Kent, Sussex and Hampshire area. Long-term relationships with growers are cultivated, which ensures a steady supply of high quality fruit. It is worth noting that this is how the majority of large Champagne houses conduct their businesses, buying and blending grapes from local vignerons.
All wines are produced using the traditional method, and the range comprises vintage white and rosé wines, as well as a Brut NV and the Digby Leander Pink, which is featured on The Oxford Wine Company's list.
The Leander Pink NV is the official sparkling wine of Henley's famous Leander rowing club, which has been established since the year 1818. For every bottle of this wine sold, a donation is made to the Leander Academy, helping to ensure its continuation for the rowers of the future. The wine has an elegant pink hue, and combines the vibrant pink of Pinot Noir with the richness of aged Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. It makes the perfect wine to toast a Regatta weekend!
