Know A Star Trek Fan? Here’s Your Next Gift For Them

September 8 marks the 55th anniversary of Star Trek, therefore it deems the official title of Star Trek Day. Today, Star Trek Wines is celebrating the holiday with the recent launch of its 2021 additions to their portfolio, which already includes United Federation of Planets sauvignon blanc and zinfandel. 

Star Trek Wines was created in 2019 by Wines That Rock. The lifestyle wine company began more than 15 years ago with a mission to create premium wines that connect brands and fans, including past collaborations with The Rolling Stones, Cirque du Soleil and Downton Abbey. 

As an ode to the Sci-fi series, Star Trek Wines are aptly otherworldly and the bottles highly collectible for Trekkie fans (and wine fans alike). The Andorian Blue chardonnay is the third in the United Federation of Planet wine series, debuting the first 2,161 bottles with handwritten numbers. The silk screen design permits the Andorian blue shade of wine to shine through, symbolizing the importance of blue spirits from the original Star Trek universe. As for the wine itself, the chardonnay is sourced from the Santa Lucia Highlands, aged 12 months prior to bottling, and showcasing stone fruits and a lingering finish.

For red wine drinkers, the Cardassian Kanar red wine blend is a product of a multi-year search for an original Cardassian Kanar bottle. The serpent-shaped vessel was originally used in Europe during the 1950s through the 1970s, with the last bottle of its kind used for Chianti in the early 1970s in Spain, Italy and Portugal.

After discovering only a few original bottles, the team rendered the vessels to recreate an identical replica for this premium blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, petit syrah and petit verdot. The blend offers notes of juicy berries and silky tannins. In addition to the eye-catching design, the glass bottle seal reflects a glowing Cardassian logo, furthering the vessel’s out-of-this galaxy appeal.

In addition to calling out their latest wines on this special Star Trek Day, the brand is also emphasizing its limited edition complete collection titled “The Full Armada,” which includes all six offerings thus far. To treat yourself or a Trekkie fan, visit startrekwines.com.
