MARANANGA, Australia-Tuesday 19 October 2021 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Celebrated winemaker Dave Powell will be the first vintner ever to sell an entire vintage by NFT, when he puts his 2021 single-vineyard vintage wines under the hammer on OpenSea, under his new brand Neldner Road.

Powell, founder of Torbreck and more recently Powell & Son, said the decision to sell the vintage this way made sense.

“I’ve always liked to try new things and when I found out about NFTs, it seemed to fit,” he said. “This reminds me of how wines are sold in Bordeaux through their en primeur system. Like the more ‘traditional’ NFT products, our wine is rare – just 100 barrels; it’s unique – every vintage is different; and it’s the original collectible – the oldest personal wine collection dates back nearly 4,000 years.”

Powell has emulated ultra-luxury wine auctions like the Napa Wine Auctio ... Read more »
