Fancy Patrick Stewart is going to love sipping these brand new Star Trek wines from his Riedel stemware with a wedge of Brie and some dried figs, but I bet Shatner will just chug 'em straight out of the bottle alongside a pack of Slim Jims. Oh wait, each of the three releases in the limited edition collection commemorates a famous Star Trek episode from The Original Series, not The Next Generation. So I guess Stewart will spit on them--with the utmost dignity and class--instead.

Juan Ortiz designed wine labels honoring episodes The Trouble with Tribbles, The City on the Edge of Forever, and Mirror Mirror, each bottle of which contains the exact same blend of Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc, Dolcetto, Tinta Cao, and Tempranillo from Viansa Winery in Sonoma, California. So it's one wine with three different labels. And seller Vinport would like us to buy them all, preferably by the three-pack, half-case, or case. Listen, I don't know much about wine, but I do know that packages that have different labels should also have different contents, and it seems to me that if Viansa Winery could make one flavor of wine out of six different grape varietals they could have also made three flavors of wine out of two grape varietals each, and then buying multiple bottles of a Star Trek themed beverage would make way more sense.

Star Trek wines are currently pre-selling, and set to be distributed in August 2013.
