Digby’s first ever Blanc de Blancs is made from the top 5% of its grapes from the 2013 harvest. A blend of Chardonnay grown on Hampshire greensand and Dorset clay, it becomes the pinnacle of the Digby Fine English collection upon its release in September 2023.
One of England's most awarded wineries, as made by the brilliant Dermot Sugrue. Named after Sir Kenelm Digby, the polymath and inventor of the first strong glass that made it possible to bottle sparkling wine, Digby was established by founders Jason Humphries and Trevor Clough after they took a life-affirming trip to the Napa Valley to escape the grind of London corporate life. After talking to top producers around the world, they opted to buy grapes from the best vineyards rather than settle on one vineyard site, establishing contracts and relationships with quality-obsessed growers across a diverse range soil types across the southeast: chalk, greensand and clay soil sites. It's given them the flexibility ever since to make blends that represent the very best vineyards in England.
