Votto Vines, the company behind the popular Juan Ortiz Star Trek wine collection, has just unveiled the latest addition to its Trek line of wines... Klingon Bloodwine, or tlhIngan 'Iw HIq. The Klingon Bloodwine is a medium-bodied red blend of Malbec, Syrah and Petit Verdot from the Paso Robles AVA in California. A 2012 vintage, it can be enjoyed with grillled meats and mature cheeses, or such traditional Klingon fare as Heart of Targ.
Traditionally twice as strong as whiskey and best served warm, this version of Bloodwine is more human-friendly at 13% ABV. It can be served slightly chilled or at cellar temperature (60-65 F.) Trek fans will recognize the frotn label of Klingon Bloodwine, a symbol comprised of the bat’leth, while the back label includes the victorious Klingon phrase, “Celebrate! Tomorrow we may die!”... or yIlop! wa’IeS chaq maHegh!
Klingon Bloodwine is available for sale now on www.vinport.com for $19.99 per bottle. It also will soon be available through leading retailers across the United States.
