A start-up company created the first blue-colored wine without using artificial colorings.
We know of white, red and rosé wines. From today, however, it will also be possible to find blue wines on the shelves of supermarkets and wine shops.
They were created by a Spanish start-up named Gik which did not use artificial colorings to make them. It took two years of work with several university researchers.
The 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 its color. Little is known about the flavor, with the creators inviting us not to have preconceptions.
The young inventors have no experience in the production of wine but 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 ".
