In September 2022, we began our monthly members-only drops of investment-grade and collectible wine. Bottles are sourced directly from producers, as well as from pristine cellars like Robert Parker's renowned personal collection.

Tasting Tokens are released to those who shared in the tasting experience. Collect tasting tokens for access to exclusive events, experiences and offers from Club dVIN and our partner winemakers.

dVIN is committed to employing the most environmentally friendly blockchain technology,  currently using the Polygon blockchain for all of our Digital Cork and Tasting Token NFTs.

How does it work?

Buy

Proof of Provenance

Assure yourself that it’s trustworthy. Track the life of your bottle from grape to glass.

Open

The Time has Come

The bottle is physically and digitally uncorked. The original NFT is burned and your bottle becomes the soldier it was destined to be. Twist, Pull, Scan, Share.

Share

Share the Wine, Save the Memory

When a bottle is digitally uncorked, Tasting Tokens are minted. They can be distributed to those who shared the bottle with you. Collect them to preserve your tasting journey, prove your experiences and unlock new experiences from our partner winemakers.

Preserve

Find all your wine and memories in one place

Capture all of your wines in one place. Your digital cellar will become your go-to place to look at any of your wines and reminisce about where and who you shared them with.

Enjoy

Experience Membership perks and unlock more experiences

Through your membership, unlock experiences to some of the top winemakers and experiences in the world.

Additional value will come as winemakers use tasting tokens to incentivize members by giving them the means to unlock new experiences. Imagine collecting a vertical from Chateau Palmer and being rewarded with an invitation to the estate for a private tasting.

Concierge

Tasting Tokens NFT

With every bottle you open, tokens are shared

Are you a wine native
but a crypto novice?

Don’t worry. We make it easy.

At Club dVIN we use blockchain technology as an enabler, to engage with as much or as little as you like. If you’re crypto-savvy and prefer to manage your NFTs across wallets and trade yourself, that’s great too! If not, you can pay in USD, EUR or any currency you want via credit card. You do not need to engage with NFT platforms or cryptocurrency at all, other than through a one-click wallet, which won't hold any currency.

Frequently Asked Questions

General
What is Club dVIN?

Club dVIN is the world’s premier global NFT wine club. We are a community built by wine lovers, founded to celebrate the authenticity and diversity of wine culture. Our members will have access to a world of unrivalled wine and gastronomic events, exclusive offers on rare bottles, and an elite community of like-minded enthusiasts and experts - not to mention some of the most interesting producers on the planet.

When can I buy a Club dVIN membership?

New memberships will become available to those on our waitlist first. Join our waitlist by signing up above. If you are an organization rooted in wine or an NFT community looking to partner, please email us at info@clubdvin.com.

What is a Non-fungible-Token (NFT)?

Think of two $100 bills. It doesn’t matter which one you use to buy your bottle of bubbly - the shop will take either, because they are interchangeable. That’s what makes banknotes ‘fungible’. ETH or Bitcoin are also examples of fungible tokens. A Non-Fungible Token (NFT) is different because it’s non-interchangeable. Each one is unique, like a one-of-a-kind trading card or rare bottle of wine. Through the use of blockchain technology, NFTs are able to establish verified and public proof that the digital or real-world assets they are connected to are original and authentic.

Are NFTs bad for the environment?

Club dVIN is committed to employing the most environmentally friendly blockchain technology. Currently, we are using the Polygon blockchain for all of our Digital Cork and Tasting Token NFTs. Polygon's PoS validators "consume electricity energy which is multiple orders of magnitude below PoW-based blockchain miners and that translates to more eco-friendliness and considerably fewer carbon emissions. Unlike other systems, over time, it can be reasonably predicted that with technical improvements in node technology, our validators will become more aefficient in both validating transactions and consuming electricity accordingly." Read more about Polygon's environmental practices here.

Why use NFTs for Club dVIN?

An NFT is a simple and automatically generated contract. It is low cost, efficient, easily transferable, and fun. As an NFT, your membership is an asset which can later be sold or transferred to others on the secondary market. By utilizing NFT's, dVIN is able to create a loyal, member-community for whom we can provide unrivaled wine experiences.

What is ETH and how do I get it?

ETH (currency symbol Ξ) is the cryptocurrency of the Ethereum blockchain. Cryptocurrencies are not available for purchase through banks or online brokerages. Instead, they are purchased and traded online through crypto-specific trading platforms. You’ll need to choose one of these exchange platforms to fund your account. Once you’ve done that you will be all set to place an order for Ethereum. Your new ETH balance will then be stored on the exchange until you decide to transfer it to your crypto wallet.

What is a wallet? Why do I need one?

A crypto wallet is a secure virtual, well… wallet! It is accessible online and facilitates the transactions of crypto-currencies and other digital assets - like NFTs - between owners and end-users.

dVIN is compatible with most major Web3 wallets including Metamask and Torus. If you don’t have a wallet yet, you can sign up for one through the dVin app with Tor.us. This wallet will be linked to the email or social profile you connect it with, and you’ll be able to use it anywhere in Web3 in the future. If you need help getting set up we are happy to assist you through your dVIN account.

Can I purchase it with US dollars via my credit/debit card?

Our public launch is in ETH, which means that you will need a private crypto wallet to receive your membership token. We are developing a path for NFT newbies to purchase the Club dVIN membership token using a credit card in USD, but that will only be available to our waitlist.

Membership
When will you start having offers on the site?

In September 2022, we began our monthly members-only drops of investment-grade and collectible wine. Bottles are sourced directly from producers, as well as from pristine cellars like Robert Parker's renowned personal collection.

How long does the membership last?

Forever. As an NFT, all Club dVIN membership tokens are tradable on the secondary market.

Why is it worth the money?

As a Club dVIN member, you’ll have the keys to unlock a world of unrivaled wine and gastronomy experiences, exclusive offers on rare investment-grade bottles, and an entire community of like-minded enthusiasts and experts - not to mention some of the most interesting producers on the planet.

Is there an age requirement to be a token holder?

Yes, all token holders must be at least 21 years of age.

Why do I need a wallet? Can't I just transfer money from my account from a crypto-exchange?

Your wallet will be the place where you store your membership NFT. When you buy ETH from an exchange (like Coinbase, FTX, Gemini or Binance), the ETH is often stored in an account balance for you. These account balances may not be set up to receive NFTs, but your wallet will do the trick.

Once it’s set up, your Club dVin membership NFT will be automatically transferred into your dVIN wallet.

What is the secondary market?

Once a person purchases the original token from dVin, all future transactions happen on a secondary market, such as Opensea.io.

OpenSea is the first and largest peer-to-peer marketplace for crypto goods (like an eBay for crypto assets), which include collectibles, gaming items, and other virtual goods backed by a blockchain. On OpenSea, anyone can buy or sell these items through a smart contract.

What happens if the wallet containing my NFTs is compromised or goes missing?

You’re safe with us. We understand that the world of blockchain can seem daunting, and we’ve all heard the stories of wallets being compromised and their digital contents stolen. Thankfully, you won’t have to worry about any of that with us. All Club dVIN NFTs are linked to your ID on our end, so if any should ever go missing, we can simply destroy the original and re-issue you a new one.
