Giesen wines in Marlborough has launched what it says is the world's first alcohol-removed Marlbourough Sauvignon Blanc, hoping to cash-in on a  global trend.

Last yearn a report by the British food and drinks consultancy Zenith predicted global sale of zero alcohol drinks to grow by 10 per cent each year over the next five years.
