Spanish winemaker creates blue wine
NEW YORK (FOX) - It's always been the question for wine connoisseurs: Red or white? Well, how about blue?
A company in Spain has created a blue wine that is a blend of red and white grapes that are produced there. It's about $11 a bottle, and so far, it's a hit -- in Spain.
But, would wine lovers here drink the blue wine? FOX's Linda Schmidt hit the streets of New York to find out.
"I'm not so sure any of my friends or I would drink a cobalt blue wine," one person said.
"Red wine already stains your mouth and teeth enough, so I don't think blue would really be something I would lean toward," another offered.
"I don't think it would be appealing to me," a third person added, "but I would try it anyway."
Either way, we are going to have to wait to try out the blue wine. There's no word on when it's making its way to the U.S.
But what we do have are pink wines -- the rosés -- and they are trending this summer.
"It's fresh, it's very light and easy to drink and has no after taste," explained Hasan Senyurt, who owns Serena's Winebar on the city's Upper East Side.
He says he's selling twice as much rosés as reds this summer, partially because it's also a popular ingredient in some cocktails and sangrias.
"I give my clients a little taste of it. I got great feedback about it," he added.
