On January 27th, 2022, the main Wine Buddies Twitter account @winebuddies_nft was suddenly suspended without any reason given. Several appeals have been sent but Twitter has never responded nor given a reason. This was very unfortunate as it was the primary means of marketing for this project. Several interviews had been arranged and the first giveaway was days away. With the sudden suspension, all events were cancelled as the project regrouped. As a personal favor, please reach out to @TwitterSupport and ask for @winebuddies_nft to be unsuspended.
Wine Buddies are a "small lot" LIMITED RELEASE generative NFT art set of 350 comical wine bottle characters from the mystical fields of Vineland, where grapes grow year round and the wine flows from pristine rivers.
It is whispered among inner winemaker circles that the Wine Buddies brought fine wine production to our world and even instructed the very first Master Sommelier!
Many of their family names may sound familiar to you, but that could just be from a wine buzz!
The Wine Buddies are first and foremost made for lovers of wine! Consider your Wine Buddies character a badge of honor.
Additionally, collectors of rare limited release NFTs and those who appreciate original illustrated artwork will also consider them a "must-have".
The Wine Buddies were ranked for rarity by Rarity Sniper. You can see their rankings at: https://www.raritysniper.com/wine-buddies
All Wine Buddies NFT owners will be eligible for random giveaways, airdrops, and "wine drops" that may include direct shipments of wine, wine gift certificates, Ethereum, and much more.
Initial Drop: The first drop happened on April 7th, 2022. Wine Drop #1 NFT was dispersed to the winner and has been redeemed.
Additional Drops: Additional drops will be announced in the near future.
All Wine Buddies are already generated on OpenSea.
All Wine Buddies were randomly generated using 10 distinct properties with some being rarer than others. Every Wine Buddies character also received a randomly generated name (including details from famous wine regions) and a brief statement about the types of wine they prefer.
Certain randomly selected traits have created some interesting combinations, so please understand that no intended offense was meant towards any person or wine bottle. That's the beauty and uniqueness of each individual Wine Buddies character. Relax... just enjoy more wine!
Wine Buddies' properties were illustrated by master illustrator Michael B.
