Villa Maria goes Lighter with new range

Villa Maria offers lighter alternative in terms of alcohol and calories, but without compromising on taste

Following the recent success and interest around Skinny Prosecco, Barry and Fitzwilliam has decided to introduce a new range of Villa Maria Lighter Wines to the Irish Market.

An increasing number of consumers are looking for drink options to suit their healthier lifestyles and this range now offers these lifestyle-conscious consumers exactly that – a lighter alternative in terms of alcohol and calories but made without compromising on taste.
