UK: Arniston Bay adds ‘bubbly’ to its range
South African wine brand Arniston Bay has added a sparkling wine to its collection in the UK for the first time.
The non-vintage Charmat Brut is made from Colombard grapes and joins the company's range of 'easy-drinking' wines currently in the Arniston Bay portfolio, brand owner The Company of Wine People said today (25 July).
"With sales of sparkling wine continuing to enjoy above average growth in the UK, we see the Arniston Bay Charmat Brut as a natural extension to the range," said brand and business development manager Barney Davis. "This makes our offering to the retailer a more complete one, and provides the consumer with a different choice for each drinking occasion."
The Arniston Bay Charmat will retail at GBP7.99 (US$15.88) per bottle.
