In a new interview with TrekCore, Wines That Rock‘s Spencer Brewer spoke about the new Trek-themed wines coming from the company.
The two wines already announced, Château Picard and United Federation of Planets Special Reserve, which were sold as a two-pack, sold out in only nine hours. Expect a second release of the two-pack in several months.
“The only other thing that’s going to be coming out this year is we have this wooden etched box that holds six of the bottles from Château Picard that is made there in France. That will be a special collector’s edition package,” said Brewer.
Are there other Trek-themed wines in the future? “We know we’re probably going to do the Klingon bloodwine,” said Brewer. “There have been two or three that have come out in the past [from other companies], but the wine was not good in any of them, the labels were not great, and they were served in just normal bottles.
“We would need to work really hard on finding an amazing bottle, because the original one was a silver oil can. We’re going to have to come up with a bottle that Klingons would really want. We’ve already picked the wine; we know where it’s from and what it’s going to be. All I can say is that it’s an amazing wine.
The second one is my dream, which would be to do the Cardassian kanar. We did research on this for six months so we know where the factories were [that made the bottles that appeared on Deep Space Nine], who made them, which variations were on each series because it was shown two or three times. There’s only one that is the real thing, and the last one of those came off the line in the early 1970s at a factory in Spain. They were also made at the time in Italy.
“We’ve found three factories that will make them, but we have to make 20,000 bottles for them to start the process. That is extremely expensive, so we have to make sure it’s the real deal before we go further.
“We don’t know yet what the second one is, we will probably do the Klingon bloodwine as one of the next ones. But we’re not exactly sure what the other one will be.”
