Despite the ubiquity of NFT-headlines surrounding pixelated avatars and other 2D art, these projects are far from the only use-case for the burgeoning technology. NFT tech is essentially just a means of recording transactions on the blockchain, so you could really tie ownership of pretty much anything to a digital token. So how about buying a limited-edition porcelain wine bottle from one of the most iconic wineries in the world?

Robert Mondavi Winery Blends NFTs And Porcelain To Create New Limited Collection

It would have been hard for Robert Mondavi to predict in 1966 that non-fungible tokens (NFTs) would one day be a part of selling his wines, but the current chief winemaker Geneviève Janssens thinks he would have loved the new technology. “This goes so well with his spirit,” says Janssens. “He was not traditional at all and always took risks. He would have done this now if he was still around.”

Interview with Joe Harden Former Robert Mondavi Winemaker

What was your first memory of wine and how did you know you wanted to be a winemaker?. I grew up on a vineyard and have many fond childhood memories of walking my family’s dogs in the vineyard and eating a ton of grapes! I knew I wanted to be a winemaker after spending a couple of weeks with Karl Wente in Livermore shadowing him during harvest. Watching him work in the vineyards, getting creative in the blending session and seeing his passion while working insane hours during harvest – it all seemed like an amazing profession and lifestyle.
