TO coincide with the release of the latest Star Trek film, Star Trek Into Darkness, a California winery has released a range of collectible wines emblazoned with retro images from the original TV series.
In a nod to fictional wines mentioned on the science fiction series like the rare Tulaberry and Bajoran spring wine, Viansa Winery in Sonoma, California, is releasing a limited 1,701 cases of Star Trek wine, a medium-bodied, red blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc.
The trio of wine labels, designed by Juan Ortiz, pays homage to three of the most popular episodes among Trekkies: The City On The Edge Of Forever; The Trouble With Tribbles; and Mirror, Mirror.
It’s not the first wine to be inspired by a movie or TV series. Recently, Alamo Drafthouse in Texas released a chianti and pinot grigio based on The Silence Of The Lambs.
Last year, the Texas-based cinema house also released a series of Princess Bride wines to mark the film’s 25th anniversary.
Star Trek wines, meanwhile, are available at Vinport.com for US$25 (RM77) a bottle and are supposed to pair well with pizza, grilled meats and vegetables. – AFP Relaxnews
