LEANDER PINK Non Vintage English Sparkling Wine
Digby Fine English is proud to be the official sparkling wine producer for Leander Club, the most decorated, elite rowing club in the world. Allow yourself to be transported river-side on a warm summer's day, cheering as boats slice their way past you, glass in hand. This pink fizz is a blend that celebrates England’s most vibrant Pinot Noir fruit, with red berry aromas carried on the back of a light, creamy fruitiness. Every bottle sold supports Leander Academy, training new talent to become the world champions of the future.

Founded in 1818, Leander Club in Henley-on-Thames boasts an unsurpassed record in rowing achievements. Its Members have won more Olympic medals than any other single-sport club in the world.
However, Leander Club is not just a home to champions past and present. It is also a home for the champions of tomorrow. That’s because through the Leander Academy they attract and develop young oarsmen and women with high potential, providing them with state-of-the-art facilities and world class coaching.
For us at Digby Fine English, this strategic partnership with Leander Club is a dream come true. We could think of no better way to launch our first Non Vintage blend than with an organisation with such history and verve for innovation. The partnership will last through 2020, including six Henley Regattas, two Olympics and Leander Club's bicentennial celebrations in 2018. And doesn't the iconic Leander pink hippo look smashing on his own fizz?
