BLUE WINE: A NATURAL COLOR
This blue wine produced in Andalusia (Spain) is made "from 100% Chardonnay grapes, macerated with extracts of grape skin," explains the company.
To obtain this color, the white wine is macerated with black grape skins, which contain a natural bluish pigment called anthocyanin.
If this blue wine is talked about today, it's because a French company based in Sète decided to market it in France. According to René Le Bail, one of its leaders, it is "a fruity wine, with the taste of cherry, blackberry, and passion fruit, not too powerful (11% alcohol per volume)."
Is This The World's First Blue Wine?
