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’ are wines of distinctively English character and as such we are delighted to announce a new partnership with the award winning Digby Fine English who are flying the flag for England in the Armit Wines portfolio.
Digby was launched in 2013 and gained instant global recognition by winning the best sparkling English wine with their 2009 Brut Reserve in the 2014 Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships. Determined to produce wines that are distinctively English in character, the experienced team at Digby have built long-term relationships with the best vineyards across English wine country (typically in Kent, Sussex and Hampshire). This diversity allows Digby, with one of England’s most celebrated winemakers Dermot Sugure at the helm, to produce a sparkling wine with a hallmark richness of flavour and texture focusing on Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay.
Digby Fine English is a beautiful and elegant expression of Englishness and we strongly recommend raising a glass this Easter to celebrate all that shapes this totally unique Isle.
