Wines That Rock, makers of officially licensed Star Trek Wines, has teamed up with TrekMovie to give away a Chateau Picard wine crate, Kanar bottle, Federation wine label medallion, and a $300 Star Trek Wines gift card! What we love most about these wines is that the unique bottles and the wine inside them were designed by Trekkies, for Trekkies. Premium Star Trek-themed wines that make you feel like a Captain (or Gul, or what have you)? Sign us up! The company has recently released two new Star trek wines to their lineup, which you can read about below.
Kanar Red Wine Blend
Star Trek Wines has produced one of the most sought after, highly collectible bottles in the universe: the Kanar bottle. In its quest for authenticity, the Star Trek Wines team conducted a rigorous multi-year search for the original Kanar bottle, that unique serpentine vessel, which was a design not commonly utilized after the 1970s. With a small batch of original bottles found, the team rendered them in 3D and worked with a specialized facility in Italy to recreate and forge an identical replica. They also located an original show prop top enclosure for the bottle featured on the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “The Wounded” for a replica included with every bottle purchased. Star Trek writer Una McCormack worked with the Wines team to ensure historical accuracy of the bottle, its label, and the accompanying liner notes, which spell out the history of Kanar and the role this special wine played in Cardassian history.
Since the Kanar comes with a resealable cap, there’s no excuse not to drink its contents, and these wines were made to be enjoyed. One thing that makes Star Trek Wines special is not only the care put into the bottle and marketing design, but the wines themselves, which are high quality and are meant to feel like they fit in-universe. Award-winning winemakers crafted the Kanar premium red wine blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Sirah, and Petite Verdot, a mixture that results in a dark, rich wine with notes of ripe blackberries and juicy blueberries, velvety tannins, and a long, delightful finish. But, the most important question is: Would Gul Dukat approve?
A 2-pack of the Kanar red wine blend sells for $120 and will start shipping in December 2021.
Andorian Blue Chardonnay
The second in the newest lineup of wines is the 2021 Andorian Blue Chardonnay (yes, the wine is blue!), which features one-of-a-kind hand-numbered bottles, elegant silk screen designs, and a special United Federation of Planets metal medallion affixed to the front of the bottle. This wine pairs nicely with lighter fare such as fancy cheeses or exotic fruits that look like they might be from outer space; you know, standard finger foods you might serve at a fancy gala or a reception for the visiting admiral. Plus, you know, it’s blue! Much like the Kanar, this wine is meant to be enjoyed. The bottle comes filled with a premium Chardonnay from Santa Lucia Highlands. It has been aged 12 months prior to bottling and delivers delicious notes of citrus, peach, and apricots with a bright, fresh acidity, lush mouthfeel, and a long finish.
A 2-pack of the Andorian Blue Chardonnay sells for $100 and will start shipping in December 2021.
Star Trek Wines in Star Trek
These aren’t the first officially licensed Star Trek wines created by Wines That Rock. They made their debut into the Star Trek fandom when they partnered with CBS and the real Chateau Picard (yes, a real winery called Chateau Picard in France!) to bottle and sell their wine in bottles sporting Jean-Luc’s family label. They even designed wooden wine crates, and both the bottles and crates were heavily featured in advertising leading up to the first season of Star Trek: Picard. Wines That Rock has also created two United Federation of Planets Special Reserve wines and a Klingon Bloodwine that was tested and approved by the Klingon Language Institute.
