After orange wine and mayonnaise ice cream, it's time for a blue beverage to take center stage. It's not curacao liqueur or an artificially colored cocktail but... a blue wine called Vindigo!

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?

This is not the first time that a blue wine surfaces. In 2016, Spanish company Gik launched the world's first blue wine only to have it banned by the government just months after its launch.
