India's United Vintners, a wholly-owned subsidiary of United Spirits, has launched a range of New Zealand wines in its home market, according to reports.

The company, part of the larger United Breweries Group, will import wines from Astrolabe, Hunter's, Ra Nui and Hawkes Bay wineries. The range will include Sauvignon Blancs, Pinot Noirs, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris, the Press Trust of India said yesterday (20 November).

Index Distribution-New Zealand managing director Jennifer Woods said: "Through our partnership with UB, we will be able to supply India with some of the most outstanding varietals New Zealand is famous for, and develop a broad portfolio for the future."

The wines will reportedly be available in 750ml bottles in metros.
