Blue Wine

Good news for any wine-drinkers who are getting bored of the eternal choice of red or white (and can’t be bothered with rosé): there’s a new wine in town.

A Spanish startup, Gik, has just unveiled the first ever blue wine. Yep, you read that correctly. Blue wine.

Gik created their wine with the help of the University of the Basque Country and Azti Tecnecalia (a food research team). they make it by using both red and white grapes sourced from vineyards spread around Spain.

And that blue colour? It’s down to anthocyanin, a pigment extracted from grape skin as well as indigo – a dye extracted from the Isatis tinctoria plant.

On their website, the people behind Gik explain that they chose blue as the colour represents ‘fluidity and change’, as well as ‘movement, innovation, and infinity.’

Blue wine is not currently available in the US, although the company certainly has plans to expand there soon. It can be ordered online in Spain, France, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Germany, for the price of about $11 per bottle.
