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

It has beefed up its rosé range with a drier-style Shiraz and has repackaged the varietal range in a bid to make it more contemporary.

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.
