“When it comes to wine, I’m an easy connoisseur, I’m always satisfied with the best” – If, like Winston Churchill, excellence is your creed, welcome to the Wine Bottle Club. This project combines the best of blockchain technology and French heritage: like NFT and the great wines of Bordeaux. From the team to the details of the wines, including all the privileges that await you, let me be your sommelier for a tasting.
The Wine Bottle Club, two worlds, one ambition
The WBC is the brainchild of meetings between enthusiasts. First of all we mention the Bordeaux trader, Lasserre & Papillon, official and renowned distributor of great Bordeaux wines. A company firmly rooted in tradition, but visionary in many ways. Indeed, before launching the Wine Bottle Club, partners Philippe Papillon & Louis de Bonnecaze were already at the origin of a digital wave that floods the sector every day.
Thus, their first cryptographic project, BTC Wine, offers from 2018 the promise of an exclusive selection of Grand Cru. A skilful representation of all the variety of national vineyards and vines. More than 2000 references that can acquire a French and international community different cryptocurrencies on a site that now aims to establish itself as the first WEB 3.0 wine distribution platform.
Another strategic partner of the Wine Bottle Club, “Bordeaux City Bond” (BCB). A customs warehouse specialized in the conservation of exceptional wines. It was founded in 2009 by the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce and Jean Claude Lasserre (consultant of the Wine Bottle Club supply chain). Since then, the company has built its reputation around an offering of high-end services for a VIP clientele. Over the years, the BCB team has made this ultra-specialized warehouse a true point of reference in its region, and beyond. As you may have guessed, the wines intended for Wine Bottle Club members are in expert hands.
NFT supported by great Bordeaux wines
The NFT “Genesis” collection will be the first collection offered by the Wine Bottle Club. 4926 NFT in three dimensions, exclusive and singular, supported by real bottles of great Bordeaux wines. Unique digital objects thanks to the development of a palette that integrates more than 100 different attributes. These digital works registered on the Ethereum blockchain are tamper-proof by the “non-fungible” nature of NFTs. They also have a “label” whose role is to present to each buyer the bottle they will be lucky enough to receive.
In addition, some of these randomly assigned tokens are the subject of an unprecedented collaboration with John Andrew Perello. One more internationally renowned artist known as JonOne. A street art legend whose mainstream works sell for more than $ 100,000. Thus, some lucky ones will receive an NFT whose background is directly drawn from 3 emblematic works of their personal collection.
The wines supported by the works are safe bets. Iconic and legendary bottles from the Bordeaux region. Great castles whose names resonate on the most beautiful gastronomic tables. From the right bank of the Garonne, 1,500 bottles of Saint Emilion Grand Cru Bitcoin La Cuvée ® 2019 (numbered edition) and 60 of Château Cheval Blanc 2011 rise. Crossing the river, we are on the left bank, in the Médoc. 1500 Margaux Bitcoin La Cuvée ® 2019 and 180 bottles of Château Gruaud Larose 2014 await us. South of Bordeaux, 1,500 bottles of Pessac-Léognan Bitcoin La Cuvée ® 2019 and 180 of Château Pape Clément 2014 complete this exceptional picture.
