Yes it's really a thing. The Twelve Hotel in Galway has introduced blue wine and we're intrigued.
The Twelve Hotel in Bearna is one of our favourite places to stay while in Galway, for the location and the always quirky take on food and drink. The Canto 5 blue wine is no exception. From Bodega Diez Siglos de Verdejo in D.O. Rueda, Canto 5 is fresh, fruity and lower in alcohol content than other wines at 5.5%. A blend of Verdejo and Sauvignon, there are notes of aniseed, citrus, apple and tropical fruits.
While we can't imagine Canto 5 taking over fully from the rosé craze, it's a bit of fun at parties and a definite ice-breaker this summer.
