International wine producer ZGM is launching a low alcohol range of premium wine-based fizzes, spritzers and coolers, designed to fit with modern consumer lifestyles.

Entwine is part of ZGM's GBP4.8m (US$9.4m) investment in the UK market and includes Premium Bucks Fizz, Raspberry and Cranberry Fizz, Elderflower Cooler, Shiraz Rosé Spritzer and Sauvignon Blanc Spritzer, the company announced today (29 May).

Each varietal is produced as a "lighter alternative" to wine with an abv of 5.5%. The launch is being backed by a GBP2.5m investment to include consumer PR, direct mail, sampling, and in-store activity.

ZGM UK's managing director, Steve Howard said: "Entwine has been developed with modern consumers in mind and fills a gap in their current repertoire, providing a quality, lighter alternative to wine. It appeals to those who have a hectic and healthy lifestyle, allowing them to indulge in an alcoholic drink without high levels of alcohol that can leave consumers with a heavy head."

The Entwine range starts at RRP GBP3.49 for the spritzers and reaches GBP4.99 for the Fizz range.

The company plans to extend its portfolio further throughout the year with launches in France, Spain and California.
