Should we care about Wine NFTs?

In this panel discussion we will explore NFTs and their implication on wine. We will emphasize three specific points.

1. All NFTs are not equal, if the NFT is simply replacing something that already exists, don’t do it.
2. Beware chasing trends. If you think releasing an NFT will result in press, don’t assume that press will be positive.
3. Do your homework. Don’t even think about releasing an NFT before you fully understand the space.
