A blue wine?
Amour Genève, the world’s first naturally blue wine was created under the direction of company CEO Coviello Salinès (an American).
It is an homage to his late father, who loved the color blue.
If you’re looking for a novel gift for a wine lover—or want to surprise your family and guests—this might be it!
The wine is 70% Verdejo, a white wine grape, and 30% Nebbiolo, a red wine grape.
Natural pigment was extracted from the Nebbiolo grape. Then the pH was balanced to allow the natural blue extract to stabilize.
The pigment extract was introduced to the fermenting Verdejo; hence, a white wine colored blue.
The wine matures throughout a natural fermentation and aging cycle, and fully satisfies all requirements of the FDA, TTB* and EU.
There are patents on the process and formula.
Truth to tell, we haven’t tasted it. We saw it while dining alone at a restaurant where it was only sold by the bottle, and the restaurant couldn’t sell us a bottle to take home.
But we did some easy research. Here are tasting notes from the producer:

*We had no idea what “TTB” stood for, so we looked it up. It’s America’s Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau.
