The fruity English Leander by Digby Fine English is not only a great fruity fizz for summer, but is also the official sparkling wine producer for the Leander Club in Henley-on-Thames, which has come to be regarded as one of the most elite rowing clubs in the world. The Leander Club is home to champions of the past, present and future, and this sparkling wine is certainly a winner for summer. Every one of these bottles purchased will help support the up and coming talent at the Leander Academy.
As a way of celebrating the Leander Club's 200 year history, Digby Fine English have produced a limited number of these bottles in Magnum format. Each bottle is hand numbered and comes in a rather lovely gilded gift box- the prefect gift for those who can't get enough of the fizz.
50% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Meunier. Brut. 75cl. 12% ABV
The man who invented the modern wine bottle in 1630, formed much of the inspiration behind the Digby Fine English brand. This 17th Century inventor and philosopher, was quite the English character and had a love for food, the sciences, and the arts.
We love this brand, for not only does it draw our attention to a creative English spirit that would otherwise remain hidden in the archive, but also for its wide variety of sophisticated and tasty fizz.
The passion to create wines with their own individual character, emanates from Digby Fine English's CEO, Trevor Clough, who sought to produce world-class blends of wine, that embrace and ultimately, never lose sight of England.
