And we are off! Bin 007 “coming soon” according to TWS Insta. What do we think it could be?
Don’t know but I assume it’ll be offered in bond
Why? None of the others have been offered in bond.
pre-mix vodka martini
or a weird blend by Angelus (as featured in Casino Royale) https://www.jamesbondlifestyle.com/news/château-angélus-pays-tribute-james-bond-007-limited-edition-wine
or a still red by Bolly
or possibly a (bow) Thai Syrah
apols…ive been on zoom calls all morning !
Looks like some people have been waiting since bin #001 to crack out the 007 jokes! Very quick off the mark
why thank you !
as a bond fan it hadn’t actually occurred to me until someone mentioned what will be next after 006…
Just hope no cease and desist for using ‘007’ …just hope the TM isn’t registered against luxury items…obv the society will have done their homework
To go with the 007 theme, some sort of vermouth, surely.
V by Vergelegen surely… although some of that has already been offered in bond
Something from Spy Valley? I’ll get my coat…
Well, duh! Shows I wasn’t firing on all cylinders this morning! Apologies @johnmc
Ha, easily done!
If No. 007 follows the same line as the rarity of an Australian Pinot Noir, then it’s probably a California Cabernet.
Track record suggests that it’ll come from a supplier that TWS currently works with or regularly works with, and that after it appears in the Bin label further vintages will appear on the main list under the winery’s own label
Could be a Cape Blend from Warwick in South Africa. They used to make a Cape Blend called Three Cape Ladies which Bond drank in Carte Blanche, a James Bond novel written by Jeffrey Deaver that came out in 2011, in which 007 chose Warwick ‘Three Cape Ladies’ Cape Blend to accompany his seduction of Felicity Willing.
“ …vintage Three Cape Ladies, a red blend from Muldersvlei in the Cape. Bond knew its reputation. He took out the cork and poured. They sat on the sofa and sipped. “Wonderful” he said.”
So there’s a 007 connection with a Warwick Cape Blend and they may well make one in the future, and TWS have had a long running relationship with Warwick
I was going to suggest a 100% Cinsault wine.
Given the plethora of terrific vintages in Southern France and around the Mediterranean as in Morocco or Lebanon of late, maybe a producer with an odd foudre of tidy wine might be persuaded!!
Yes, I have noted that this has been done before, but is relatively uncommon and if say, the Perrins, the Guigals or the Hochar’s could be persuaded, this might be a cracker!!
