Co founder and Invivo marketing director Tim Lightbourne, says:  "The promotion with Drake & Morgan is an ideal partnership for Invivo as the group's skinny drinks menu works well with the Bella concept.


"The wine has received positive feedback and interest since we launched the first vintage in 2010.


"We have created a wine that does not compromise on taste but is lower in alcohol, resulting fewer calories".


Lightbourne adds: "The first 2010 vintage sold out in just a few months, so we know there is definitely demand"


In the UK, Bella by Invivo is distributed by Codorniu UK
