When it comes to wine, I’m an easy lover, I always settle for the best” – If like Winston Churchill, excellence is your credo, welcome to the Wine Bottle Club. This project blends the best of blockchain technology and French heritage: the NFTs and the great wines of Bordeaux. From the team to the details of the wines and 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 result of meetings between enthusiasts. First of all, let’s mention the Bordeaux wine merchant, 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, the partners Philippe Papillon & Louis de Bonnecaze were already at the origin of a digital groundswell that is flooding the sector every day.
Thus, their first crypto project, BTC Wine, has been delivering since 2018 the promise of an exclusive selection of Grands Crus. A clever representation of the entire variety of vineyards and national grape varieties. More than 2000 references that a French and international community can acquire in different cryptocurrencies on a site that now aims to establish itself as the first WEB 3.0 wine distribution platform.
Another strategic partner of Wine Bottle Club, “Bordeaux City Bond” (BCB). A bonded warehouse, specialized in the storage of exceptional wines. It was founded in 2009 by the Chamber of Commerce of Bordeaux and Jean Claude Lasserre (supply chain advisor of the Wine Bottle Club). Since then, the company has built its reputation around an offer of high-end services to VIP customers. Over the years, the BCB team has managed to make this ultra-specialized warehouse a real reference in its region, and well beyond. You will have understood that the wines for the members of the Wine Bottle Club are in expert hands.
NFTs backed by great Bordeaux wines
The NFT “Genesis” collection will be the first collection offered by the Wine Bottle Club. 4,926 exclusive and unique three-dimensional NFTs, backed by real bottles of great Bordeaux wines. Unique digital items thanks to the elaboration of a palette integrating more than 100 different attributes. These digital works registered on the Ethereum blockchain are unfalsifiable due to the “non-fungible” nature of NFTs. They also have a “label” which has the role of presenting to each buyer, the bottle that he will have the chance to receive.
In addition, some of these “tokens”, attributed at random, are the subject of an original collaboration with John Andrew Perello. An internationally renowned artist better known under the pseudonym JonOne. A legend of street art whose works are now mainstream and sell for more than $100,000. Thus, some lucky people will receive an NFT whose background is directly drawn from 3 emblematic works of his personal collection.
The wines paired with the artworks are sure to be a hit. Iconic and legendary bottles from the Bordeaux region. Great chateaux whose names resound on the most beautiful gastronomic tables. From the right bank of the Garonne, there are 1500 bottles of Saint Emilion Grand Cru Bitcoin La Cuvée ® 2019 (numbered edition) and 60 of Château Cheval Blanc 2011. Crossing the river, we are on the left bank, in the Medoc. 1500 Margaux Bitcoin La Cuvée ® 2019 and 180 bottles of Château Gruaud Larose 2014 await us. South of Bordeaux, 1500 bottles of Pessac-Léognan Bitcoin La Cuvée ® 2019 and 180 bottles of Château Pape Clément 2014 complete this exceptional picture.
Become a VIP member of the Wine Bottle Club
It will not have escaped your attentive eye, the count is not there. Indeed, 6 bottles are missing. They correspond to 6 “legendary” NFTs, and to as many nectars that are announced as truly exceptional. Prestigious vintages whose precise nature has not yet been revealed, just as we do not know the price of NFT or the date of the “mint”. The event will be announced on the social networks of the WBC, twitter, instagram and discord. You can also visit their website.
Acquiring a Wine Bottle Club NFT means owning a valuable piece of digital art, a bottle of exceptional Bordeaux wine, but above all access to the Wine Bottle Club and its multiple privileges, a bit like the famous “Bored Ape Yacht Club”:
- Access to the first club bringing together crypto and wine
- Individualized wine tasting accompaniment

- Invitation to professional events related to crypto and NFT
- Participation in exclusive private sales of great wines
- Personalized advice on wine investments
- Preferential rates for the storage of your bottles at Bordeaux City Bond
- Prioritized access to the white lists of NFT partner projects
Let’s bet that the precious sesames will find takers in less time than it takes to empty a glass of good wine! They will be a relevant financial investment while allowing you to join a premium circle of enlightened amateurs. Indeed, it will not have escaped your attention that bottles of great wines have become a safe haven for the wealthiest of the wealthy. It’s an original way to diversify a portfolio and gain exposure to the growth of an ever-expanding sector … if you can resist the urge to taste them! Thus, when the blockchain sublimates the oak barrel, the great wines flood the Web3 for a unique experience mixing tradition and innovation. That’s the Wine Bottle Club.
