The French wine brand Piat d'Or is to launch a sparkling extension in its range in the UK. The wine will retail in at £5.99.

The French Sparkling consists of Ugni Blanc, Colombard and Chenin from Vins de Pays d'Oc.

It will be available in Thresher from May 2005 and Somerfield and Kwiksave from June 2005 before being rolled out to other retailers.

The new wine will launch at this year's International Wine and Spirit Fair.
