You’re about to have one more choice of color when it comes to selecting your wine.

Thanks to the Spanish company Gik, you’ll soon be able to find blue wine among the bottles of reds and whites throughout the US.

No report yet on whether the wine will turn your teeth blue, but at 11.5% alcohol, there’s no way you’ll feel blue drinking this vino.


So, how is it blue?

The company combines a mixture of red and white grapes from their wineries in La Rioja, Zaragoza, and Courthézon. The blue color is a result of two organic pigments: indigo and anthocyanin. Anthocyanin is found naturally in the grape’s skins, and the indigo (along with a non-caloric sweetener) is added for taste and appearance.
