Wisconsin-based Blind Horse Winery has made history in fine wines and digital assets by releasing its first ever NFT-labeled wine. In collaboration with VaporFi, the winery has produced a collector’s edition 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon featuring an NFT label from the renowned Bored Ape Yacht Club collection.
The Bored Ape in question was acquired by VaporFi in 2022 and licensed exclusively to The Blind Horse Winery for this groundbreaking release. Tom Nye, the master winemaker and general manager at the winery, expressed his excitement about the project: “It’s a product that is designed for crypto and wine enthusiasts, and for me, it’s the centerpiece of my collection.”
This unique blend consists mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon, with a hint of Malbec and Petite Verdot, aged for three years in French and American Oak barrels. Retailing at $100, the NFT-labeled wine represents the perfect marriage of the traditional and digital worlds, marking an unprecedented collaboration between off-chain and on-chain businesses.
With only 200 bottles of this special release, wine and crypto enthusiasts have a limited window to secure a piece of history. Nye emphasizes that once the wine is sold out, it will not be reproduced: “When it’s gone, it’s gone.” He believes this venture is more than just a collector’s item; it’s also a conversation piece that brings people together. He recommends purchasing two bottles—one to display and another to share with loved ones. “Wine is really beautiful by itself, but what makes it even better is everything else that goes along with it, which is food, friends, and family,” Nye explains.
Crypto Meets Wine: The Blind House Winery Aims to Revolutionize Tradition
The partnership between The Blind Horse Winery and VaporFi was forged in March last year as the two companies sought to bridge the gap between the cryptocurrency and traditional business sectors. Nye said, “If you’re into cryptocurrency, you know the significance of the Bored Apes and that it set off the non-fungible token craze.”
Innovation and risk-taking have become hallmarks of The Blind Horse Winery. Previously, the winery made headlines by being the first restaurant in the world to install real-time, COVID-killing lights. Undaunted by the unknown, Nye and his team look forward to their next groundbreaking endeavor, though the specifics remain uncertain.
As its first-ever NFT-labeled wine, this unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Petite Verdot is sure to enthrall connoisseurs of fine wine and cryptocurrency. It is a testament to The Blind Horse Winery’s commitment to pushing boundaries and exploring uncharted NFT territory, and a shining example of what can be achieved through collaboration and innovation.
