A Spanish start-up created the first blue wine, without using artificial colors
Of wines we know whites, reds and rosés. From today, however, on the shelves of supermarkets and wine bars it will also be possible to find blue wines.
They were created by a Spanish start-up named Gik who, to make them, did not use artificial colors. It took two years of work with several university researchers.
Blue wine is created with a mix of white and black grapes, mixed with anthocyanin, a pigment present in the skin of grapes that produces their color. Little is known about flavor yet, with the creators inviting us not to have preconceptions.
The young inventors have no experience in the production of wine but they believe that this is their strong point: "In our country wine has always been on a pedestal, so we thought it was nice that even ordinary people, without knowledge, could create it ".
