Blue wine is now a thing in Europe GIK

Try to forget everything you know about wine.

Try to unlearn the hundreds of protected wine designations of origin, the complex and demanding service standards and everything that sommelier said at a tasting course to which you were invited. Forget traditions and forget that we are speaking about the liquid which represents the blood of Christ at church.

Now open your eyes, what do you see? A sweet and blue drink with 11.5 degrees of alcohol.

Winemakers Gïk decided to shake up the wine industry with a startling new wine color: blue!

Gïk sources their grapes from Spanish vineyards in Zaragoza, La Rioja, Castilla-La Mancha, and León. 

They write on their website, “We are not vintners. We are creators. So we sought the most traditional and close-minded industry out there…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.”

And it is...

Currently the wine is sold online to customers in Spain, France, Germany, the UK, and the Netherlands. Each bottle costs about $11, but for now- every bottle is - sold out!
