Lasserre & Papillon, distributor at the origin of the BTC Wine project, continues its expansion in Web3.
After their market focused on selling Great Wines in bitcoins (BTC), Lasserre & Papillon is back with the Wine Bottle Club† Let’s discover together this community project that associates Great Wines and blockchain.
Lasserre & Papillon and the great wines, a true love story
Before we introduce you to the Wine Bottle Club initiative, let’s get back to the entity behind this initiative. Thus begins the blockchain journey of Lasserre & Papillon in 2018. Indeed, the official distributor of Bordeaux wines is not the first foray into innovation.
With their certification, the company guarantees the origin of the Grands Crus and optimal preservation of the carefully crafted nectars. The way wines are stored affects their shelf life. Based on its experience, Lasserre & Papillon makes it a point of honor to sell the wine of its customers directly on site or in a specialized warehouse such as that of Bordeaux City Bond†
In 2018, the company launched BTC Wine, the first online sales site dedicated to fine wines, payable in bitcoins. The success of this platform allows French excellence to shine around the world and serves more than 30 countries around the world. Among the wines for sale on the platform, we can mention some of the most prestigious chateaux in the world: Château Cheval Blanc, Château Pape Clément and Château Gruaud Larose for example.
The promotion of NFTs and their various uses have motivated Lasserre & Papillon to take the dedication of wine lovers one step further. For example, the official distributor of Grands Vins de Bordeaux now offers its utilitarian NFT project, supported by BTC Wine: the Wine Bottle Club†
The Wine Bottle Club
To be part of Wine Bottle Clubshould you buy one NFT of the collection developed by the project. This first collection, called GENESIS, will consist of 4926 NFTs, all attached to a very real bottle of wine. The launch of this series is scheduled for June 1, 2022 at 6 p.m.for a unit price of 0.3 ETH per NFT.
A panel of 100 attributes is proposed to generate combinations of all types of NFTs. Some wallpapers are the result of a collaboration of the project with the artist JonOne, founder of the group of artists “156 All Starz”. You can find an example of NFT from the Genesis collection with the image below.
However, the initiative is not limited to the purchase of an NFT. As mentioned above, for each NFT purchased, you will receive the actual bottle of wine associated with it.
The list of available wines is broken down as follows: 1500 Margaux Bitcoin La Cuvée ® 2019, 1500 Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Bitcoin La Cuvée ® 2019, 1500 Pessac-Léognan Bitcoin La Cuvée ® 2019, 180 Château Gruaud Larose 2014, 180 Château Pape Clément 2014, 60 Château Cheval Blanc 2011 and 6 legendary bottles to be unveiled very soon.
