Blue Wine Is Coming Soon
Spanish wine outsiders create wine colored with blue pigment made from grape skins.
Whether you like White, Red, Rose, Pink,you are going to have another option: BLUE! That’s right, blue wine is making its way to the USA soon, shaking up everything we know about vino. Gik is making their blue vino in Spain now, but they're crossing the Atlantic to bring it to us soon.
The bright blue wine is made from a mixture of red and white grapes and it’s classified as a “chilled, sweet wine.” While we don’t know how it tastes yet, we can already see it being a big hit on Instagram this summer. A bottle of red, white, and blue for the fourth of July, anyone?
The idea of the blue stuff came to the people at Gik because they were tired of the wine culture where people “care more about what they’ve learned about wine” than they do about just enjoying a glass of it.
“We are not vintners. We are creators,” Gik’s site reads. “So we sought the most traditional and closed minded industry out there. Once having selected the wine industry as our battlefield, we set about creating a radically different product, changing the color to a vibrant blue and making the wine sweeter and easier to drink.”
Gik’s blue wine is still only in pre-order here in the U.S., and it sells for $16 a bottle. But fingers crossed it’s here in time to enjoy this summer. Rosé is so last year.
