What is blue wine?

Question: What is this I hear about a blue wine?

Answer: Yes blue wine is a relatively new fashion fad. Not really something to consider IMHO unless you are looking for a cocktail to match your blue sartorial splendor or a unique pairing for a dinner course of roasted blue grouse with a blueberry sauce! It started a few years ago in Spain with Gik using the pigments from grape skins with natural dye from the woad plant (a member of the cabbage family originally used for blue dye indigo). This year Vindigo has a Chardonnay labelled Vin Bleu De Mediterranee and Saraceni has Italian Blumond bubbles. I haven’t tried either one but advised they are rather sweet.
