The Klingon Kanar - Star Trek Wines 2 Pack Collection
Our second new release for 2021 features the Cardassian Kanar – long considered one of the ‘holy grail’ collectables in the Star Trek Universe. Utilized in both Star Trek: Deep Space Nine & Star Trek: The Next Generation, the story of Kanar is intimately connected with the rise of the Cardassian Union and the strong bonds which hold the Union together. In its quest for authenticity, the Star Trek Wines/Wines That Rock team conducted a rigorous multi-year search for an original Cardassian Kanar bottle, a unique ‘serpent-shaped’ vessel, originally utilized in the 1950’s through the 70’s in Europe. With only a handful of the original bottles found, the team at Star Trek Wines/Wines That Rock rendered the few remaining bottles in 3D for accuracy and worked with a specialized facility in Southern Italy to recreate and forge an identical replica, resulting in one of the most fascinating bottles in the Galaxy.
For our official Klingon Bloodwine, we utilized the same ancient methods as the great Klingon vintners, and the talents of 2020 Wine Enthusiast’s ‘40 Under 40 Tastemaker’ Andrew Nelson as winemaker. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes used to create this traditional Klingon Bloodwine were cultivated to produce strong fruit that glistens a vibrant ruby color in the glass. Design elements, including a special silk screen process with a unique mesh texture provide an authentic look and feel. Each bottle is then hand-filled and expertly wax dipped. In addition, there are unique Klingon sayings on four different corks used in bottling – all celebrating the Klingon culture and language. Which one will you get? batlh yItlhutlh
