The inspiration for Digby Fine English came from the “land of lights and razzamatazz – twice over.” According to co Founder, Trevor Clough, it all started with a road trip across the American West to escape the grind of working in the corporate world in London, followed up by a field trip to Napa Valley. The lightning bolt struck on the driveway of a sparkling winery south of Seattle, Washington, U.S, surrounded by sweeping rows of vines on the way up to a glittering winery visitor centre.
Co-Founders Trevor Clough and Jason Humphries had been looked for an idea for their own start-up for years. They asked themselves, if English sparkling wine was as good as the newspapers said, how come they had never encountered it in stores, on wine lists, at quintessential British events, etc.? From the very start the vision was that the quality of English fizz deserved worldwide acclaim and their goal is to bring this inimitably English form of sippable luxury to discerning, adventurous customers in all of the world’s coolest cities
The next question Trevor and Jason asked themselves was, how? How could they craft a wine that would both taste uniquely English and be world-class? To answer that, they booked flights to California and spent a week’s field trip in Napa Valley, talking to sparkling winemakers there. That trip gave them the inspiration to take a unique path in English wine, that of England’s first negociant or blending house.
