Forget rosé, a new type of wine has arrived to calm your nerves when you’re feeling extra blue.
French entrepreneur René Le Bail started producing the naturally-occuring turquoise ‘Vindigo’ wine in Almeria, Spain, despite the product being frowned upon by locals in his homeland.
The drink starts off as a white chardonnay, but gets its gorgeous blue hue after being filtered through the pulp of red grape skin, which contains a natural pigment called anthocyanin.
According to the brand’s Facebook page, the wine has “pleasant aromas of cherry, raspberry and passionfruit.”
“Women appreciate it very much,” said Bail. “It is an ideal wine for the summer, to drink on the sand or at the edge of the swimming pool.”
Each bottle goes at just €12 (US$14), and can be found in the port city of Sète, though the beverage will soon make its way to Bordeaux.
