With Spring now on the horizon, you may be looking forward to a classic picnic in the English countryside? If so, you could be washing your Cumberland sausage, Melton Mowbray pork pie or Cornish pasty down with a glass of Digby English sparkling wine – or English Fizz. The term ‘English Fizz’ is gaining support as a way of defining the protected geographical indication (PGI) of increasingly popular sparkling wines from English producers.
Digby Fine English Sparkling Wines have been able to increase their production output significantly following a successful round of P2P funding last year. You can buy Digby throughout the UK, including at Selfridges and M&S. They are also exporting to the US, Japan and are the first English sparkling wine to go on sale in Australia.
