WHY IS IT BLUE?
The BLUE colour reminds us to the Mediterranean Sea, culture and gastronomy. Made with grapes Chardonnay, ALMA AZUL owes its elegant blue colour to a natural pigment called Anthocyanin found in the grapes skin, which is completely harmless for human consumption and commonly used as a food additive and source for antioxidants.
ALMA AZUL intends to bring you back to the good memories of that sunny day, in that Mediterranean beach, of those unforgettable holidays…
