“When it comes to wine, I am an easy connoisseur, I always settle for the best” – If, like Winston Churchill, excellence is your credo, welcome to the Wine Bottle Club. This project combines the best of blockchain technology and French heritage: NFTs and the great wines of Bordeaux. From the team to the details of the wines, including 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 brainchild of meetings between enthusiasts. Let’s first mention the Bordeaux 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 floods the sector every day a little more.
Thus, their first crypto project, BTC Wine, has been delivering since 2018 the promise of an exclusive selection of Grands Crus. A skilful representation of all the variety of national vineyards and grape varieties. More than 2000 references that a French and international community can acquire in different cryptocurrencies on a site which now aims to establish itself as the first WEB 3.0 wine distribution platform.
Another strategic partner of the Wine Bottle Club, “Bordeaux City Bond” (BCB). A bonded warehouse specializing 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 for a VIP clientele. Over the years, the BCB team has made this ultra-specialized warehouse a real reference in its region, and well beyond. As you will have understood, the wines intended for 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. 4926 NFT in three dimensions, exclusive and singular, backed by real bottles of great Bordeaux wines. Unique digital items thanks to the development of a palette integrating more than 100 different attributes. These digital works recorded on the Ethereum blockchain are tamper-proof on the part of the “non-fungible” nature of NFTs. They also have a “label” whose role is to present to each buyer the bottle he will be lucky enough to receive.
In addition, some of these “tokens”, assigned at random, are the subject of an unprecedented collaboration with John Andrew Perello. An internationally renowned artist more known as JonOne. A legend of street art whose now mainstream works are snapped up for sums exceeding $100,000. Thus, some lucky ones will receive an NFT whose background is directly taken from 3 emblematic works from their personal collection.
The wines backed by the works are safe bets. Iconic and legendary bottles from the Bordeaux region. Great castles whose names resonate on the most beautiful gastronomic tables. From the right bank of the Garonne, there are 1,500 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 Médoc. 1500 Margaux Bitcoin La Cuvée ® 2019 and 180 bottles of Château Gruaud Larose 2014 await us there. To the south of Bordeaux, 1,500 bottles of Pessac-Léognan Bitcoin La Cuvée ® 2019 and 180 of Château Pape Clément 2014 complete this exceptional picture.
Become a VIP member of the Wine Bottle Club
This will not have escaped your watchful eye, the account is not there. Indeed, 6 bottles are missing. They correspond to 6 “legendary” NFTs, and as many nectars that we are told are truly exceptional. Prestigious vintages whose precise nature has not yet been revealed, just as we also do not know the price of the NFTs or the date of the “mint”. The event will be announced on the WBC social networks, Twitterinstagram and discord. You can also go to their website.
Acquiring a Wine Bottle Club NFT means owning a valuable digital work of art, an exceptional bottle of Bordeaux wine, but above all access to the Wine Bottle Club and its many privilegesa bit like the famous Bored Ape Yacht Club » :
- Access to the first club bringing together crypto and wine
- Individualized support at the tasting

- Participation in exclusive private sales of great wines
- Personalized wine investment advice
- Preferential rates for the storage of your bottles within Bordeaux City Bond
- Prioritized access to the “white lists” of partner NFT projects
Let’s bet that the precious sesame seeds will find buyers in less time than it takes to empty a glass of good wine! They will constitute a relevant financial investment while allowing you to join a premium circle of enlightened amateurs. Indeed, it will not have escaped you that bottles of great vintages have become safe havens prized by the greatest fortunes. An original way to diversify a portfolio and expose yourself to the growth of an ever-expanding industry…if you resist the urge to taste them! Thus, when the blockchain sublimates the oak barrel, great wines flood the Web3 for a unique experience combining tradition and innovation. That’s the Wine Bottle Club.
