What is Gïk?
Try to forget all you know about wine. Try to unlearn the 60 denominations of origin of wine in Spain, the rules of service and everything that sommelier said in a tasting course to which they invited you. Forget the traditions and forget that we speak of the liquid that represents the blood of Christ in Mass.
Gik is not a blue wine, it’s a revolution. Therefore, there is only one recommendation to follow when drinking it: forget everything you have been told. Ignore the rules, the experts and us. Mix it up, take it like, when and where you want and do not let anyone tell you that you’re not right.
Because drinking Gik you are drinking something innovative. You are drinking the possibility of creating your own rules. You are reinventing traditions.

At medium intensity olfafiva, aroma of great simplicity to grapes. Notes reminiscent of ripe fruit.

Sweet attack with marked but soft acidity. Long and gentle finish. Fruity aftertaste.
Gïk is 100% grape with an indigo blue color and a very sweet sweet taste. And you wonder: how the hell did they do it?
We develop a technological process of pigmentation and food sweetening that combines natural pigments and chemical processes of synthesis.
We ask ourselves: how does nature make strawberries red? Thus we decided to return to the origin and mix nature and technology in a technological process whose result is a perfectly healthy, blue color drink with a sweet and unique flavor.
ABOUT THE TASTE
Gïk does not contain added sugars. Why? Firstly, because the sugar ferments and turns into alcohol inside the bottle.
Second, because too much sugar generates overweight, while sweeteners are a healthier alternative and light
Our processes are regulated by the European Food Safety Authority and have received the approval of institutions that continuously evaluate safety and conditions of use.
Among the pigmentation elements used are anthocyanin, a natural compound derived from grape skin, and indigotine. Both are organic pigments obtained by synthesis.
This technology has been developed by Gïk’s R & D team in collaboration with the Faculty of Engineering of the UPV-EHU and companies in the agro-food technology sector.
The quality controls are rigorous and all the elements used follow the rules for food products of the European Union.
