Percy Fox has expanded California's Blossom Hill range with wines from three other countries - Italy, Chile and South Africa.

Seventh Continent has also seen livery changes, designed to make the region more prominent, and Pommery's 20cl Pop Champagne has recently seen patriotic additions with stars & stripes and Union Jack motifs.
