New low alcohol wines show off their units
A new low alcohol wine called Vetro will be one of the first to clearly display the units of alcohol on its front label in response to the government's Know Your Limits campaign. UK wine importer Bottle Green is launching the low alcohol wine in collaboration with Italian producer Medici Ermete. The wine is a 4% abv Lambrusco containing 3 units of alcohol per 75cl. The news coincides with the Conservative party unveiling plans to scrap the current units system for measuring alcohol consumption if they are elected.
Vetro will be launched at the London Wine Fair in May with a red, a white and a rosé.
