Fine English

England, ‘this precious stone set in the silver sea’ has made the English who we are. Every aspect of our lives – our history, our temperament, our eccentricity, our irrepressible humour, our fearless creativity have all been shaped by our island nature, the unpredictability of our temperate climate, our richly varied geology.

And from that ancient terrain comes ‘Digby Fine English Sparkling Wine’ – a superlative, elegant, spirited expression of Englishness – with all its follies and foibles, modesty and refinement, its courage and its curiosity…

Inspired by the extraordinary life of the 17th Century philosopher, theologian, writer, pirate, inventor and ‘father of the modern wine bottle’, Sir Kenelm Digby, ‘Digby Fine English’ is a wine of distinctively English character.

Digby’s Cellar

We create long-term relationships with the best vineyards across English wine country (typically Kent, Sussex and Hampshire) to ensure a supply of only the finest quality berries. This diversity allows us to achieve our hallmark richness of flavour and texture. Our vineyard partners are selected according to the meticulous standards they employ.
Our focus is on Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, varieties proven to produce the most finesse. Time, care and patience goes into our rendition of the Traditional Method, which gently reveals the potential in each lot of pressed juice. We then pour ourselves into blending, where we create the liquid pleasures that are unmistakably Digby.
