“Club dVIN is made possible by proprietary technology that uses blockchain to bring together a global wine community in a way that has never been possible before,” said David Garrettwho is co-founder of Club dVIN with Behdad Shahsavari and Brian Feuer. “We have built a foundation for Club dVIN through a community of ultimate wine insiders; a group of 100 founding members who are the biggest names in the new wine guard, from Masters of Wine to top winemakers.”
NFT Tasting Token™, which are functional NFTs connected to a Digital Cork™, are exclusive to Club dVIN. As soon as the bottle is labeled by the producer, it is linked to a Digital Cork™ NFT on the blockchain. NFT Tasting Token™ are minted when a bottle connected to a Digital Cork™ is opened. In addition to the NFT’s visual storytelling element and detailed wine information, the Tasting Token™ holder can add their own tasting notes, as well as photos or videos to commemorate the event. As Tasting Tokens™ are collected, holders gain access to experiences hosted by the dVIN Club, as well as special perks and rewards from winemakers. Over time, these NFTs will become an immersive virtual tasting diary. Winemakers and other collaborators can use Tasting Token™ NFT data to communicate with wine lovers at the time of consumption and to provide benefits and incentives to their biggest fans.
Club dVIN’s Digital Cork™ tracks every bottle of wine “from grape to glass”, beginning with the winemaker and ending on sale to the consumer and subsequent resale. Wine collectors will be able to access all the details of the chain of custody, from shipping dates and where the bottle was stored, to climate control data and other details on care and handling. With this transparency, a Digital Cork™ NFT will act to increasingly deter fraud.
Club “Genesis” dVIN members will have access to a global community of like-minded wine and web3 enthusiasts and experts, including the 100 founding members who represent some of the most revered names in wine, crypto and media.
