Wine investment platform Vint launches three NFTs on behalf of Emmitt-Scorsone for auction

RICHMOND, Virginia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Vint, the first qualified, fully transparent and efficient wine and spirits investment platform, today announced the release of three individual non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in collaboration with Emmitt-Scorsone, producer of Judge Palmer, Domenica Amato, and Emmitt-Scorsone wines. The offering marks the first NFT offered by a Sonoma-based winery and the first NFT collection featuring wines made from grapes from the famed Beckstoffer To Kalon and George III vineyards. Each token entitles buyers to own three signed bottles of Judge Palmer Cabernet Sauvignon wine, an exclusive invitation for two to a harvest winemaker dinner, and two personalized tasting experiences.

NFTs will be auctioned on Rare from Wednesday, February 16 at 10:00 a.m. EST until Wednesday, February 23 at 10:00 a.m. EST. Auction offers start at 600 USDC, bringing collections to market at an unprecedented low price, using reputable, easy-to-acquire stablecoins.

NFT collection details and introductory offer:

  • Judge Palmer 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon – Beckstoffer in Kalon, Napa Valley: $675

  • Judge Palmer 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon – Beckstoffer George III, Napa Valley: $675

  • Judge Palmer 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon – Ellis Alden Vineyard, Alexander Valley: Ellis Alden: $600

The NFT collection includes three offerings of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Judge Palmer line, personally curated by winemakers from the cellar’s library. The wines are extremely rare with less than two cases remaining at the cellar and no stock available for public purchase through any other channel. Two of the NFTs offer ownership of wines from Napa Valley’s premier Beckstoffer Vineyards, including bottles from famed To Kalon Vineyard. The third NFT features single-vineyard wines sourced exclusively from Ellis Alden’s vineyard in Sonoma’s Alexander Valley. These wines were only produced for a limited time and are no longer produced as stand-alone cuvées.

“It is a great privilege to partner with Emmitt-Scorsone to unveil this exclusive collection of NFTs to not only bring rare wines and experiences to the public, but also to further our mission of bringing accessibility and innovation to the wine investment industry,” said Nick King, CEO and co-founder of Vint. “This NFT collection demonstrates our commitment to using technology to provide access to rare wines, immersive experiences and wine education, as well as supporting producers by raising awareness and providing sustainable funding methods to ensure their continued prosperity.”

Each NFT, minted by Vint on behalf of Emmitt-Scorsone, entitles the holder to three bottles of wine signed by winemakers Judge Palmer and two tasting experiences. The first experience features a virtual tasting of the wine included in the NFT Collection, with Emmitt-Scorsone owners and winemakers providing details about the specific vintage and the wine production process. The second includes a private in-person tour of the winery and vineyard and a tasting of selected wines. Owners of each NFT will also receive an invitation for two guests to attend a harvest winemaker dinner in the wine region, and a first right of refusal to purchase the next NFT vintage wine from the vineyard. All wine sales and transfers will be handled by Emmitt-Scorsone as Vint acts as a marketer, rather than a supplier in this case.

“Wine has long been the ultimate collectible, so I think the NFT space is a natural extension for the wine market,” said Palmer Emmitt, owner of Emmitt-Scorsone. “An NFT is the perfect way for collectors to keep a digital record of a favorite wine vintage – a reminder of the experience long after the bottle has been consumed.”
