Start Your Trekkie Booze Collection: 'Star Trek' Wine Now Available
According to a press release, the winery has created a "medium bodied red blend" with merlot, sangiovese, and cabernet franc. "This beautifully developed blend shows its unique character for a balanced and complex wine that’s pleasurable from start to finish," the press release boasts.
The wine itself was inspired by the multiple wines in Star Trek, from "the delicate Bajoran spring wine of Kendra province to the fruity bouquet of rare Tulaberry wine." This wine, of which there are 1,701 cases (fitting, as Grub Street notes), retails for $24.99 on Vinport.
Even better, the wine labels designed by artist Juan Ortiz are based on three original episodes: "The City on the Edge of Forever," "The Trouble with Tribbles," and "Mirror, Mirror." The producers recommend the wine be enjoyed with pizza, grilled meats, and vegetables, or "your favorite Romulan dish." We imagine a Star Trek marathon is also in order.
