Forget about red, white and rosé! It’s time for blue wine! Yes, that’s right, a group of young Spanish have broken the mould with the launch of the world’s first blue wine. This six young enterpreneurs in their ‘20s wanted to make a new product which could identify with their generation, something innovative, ground-braking, and a little rebellious, so they have invented Gik.

Gik is a bright blue wine from Bierzo in northwest Spain made with red and white grapes. A base wine is created from red and white grapes, then anthocyanin and indigo pigments are added to turn it blue and the wine is softened with sweeteners.
Its makers recommend serving the 11.5% abv Gik chilled. Food pairing suggestions include sushi, nachos with guacamole, Tzatziki sauce, pasta carbonara and smoked salmon.
The wine took two years to develop in collaboration with the University of the Basque Country and Azti Tecnalia, the food research department of the Basque Government. None of the six founders have any previous winemaking experience.
The first batch has gone on sale for €10 a bottle via the Gik website and the plan is to make the wine at different wineries across Spain depending on demand.
