Blue Wine is Actually a ‘Thing’ and It’s Going to Market in the Netherlands Now

By  | 

If red wine goes with red meat, and white wine goes with white meat, what does blue wine go with? You’ll actually be asking that question if blue wine becomes a “thing” in the Texas Hill Country. But for now, a company called Pasion Blue has developed it in the Netherlands, and we’re seeing the first of its kind via social media sharing on Facebook.

In efforts to redefine our wine drinking experience, Pasion Blue developed the wine from Chardonnay grapes. The wine has peach aromas and is made with 11.5 percent alcohol. The blue tint is derived from a combination of a pigment which is naturally found in the grape skin called anthocyanin coupled with indigo dye. Food Envy has shared the company’s promotional video on their Facebook page, and now we’re sharing it with you!

We’re not entirely sure this is going to be something that comes out of the Texas Hill Country wineries anytime soon, but as Pasion Wine explains on their website, “being seen with the beautiful color just adds an extra dimension,” and simply another way to enjoy the beverage. Would you try blue wine?
