Chateau Picard wine label, dated 2267

Chateau Picard was an estate red wine produced at the Picard vineyards in La Barre, France. The head vigneron or winegrower during the mid-24th century was Robert Picard.

When Jean-Luc Picard returned to Earth to meet his family in 2367, he sampled a glass of Chateau Picard 2347 and mistook it for a 2346 vintage. (TNG: "Family")

Jean-Luc Picard reserved a few bottles of this wine on the USS Enterprise-D and USS Enterprise-E for special occasions. Picard poured two glasses of this wine and offered a toast to Chancellor Durken after initiating First Contact with the Malcorians. (TNG: "First Contact")

The senior officers of the Enterprise-E shared an emotional drink of Chateau Picard together after Data sacrificed himself to save the Enterprise and his friends. (Star Trek Nemesis)

Background information Edit

By coincidence or not, Chateau Picard is a real wine label, although it is made in Saint Estèphe.

The bottle of Chateau Picard is seen in the DS9 Season 1 DVD special feature "Secrets of Quark's Bar" presented by Penny Juday, although the prop was not used in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine but in Star Trek: Nemesis.

The label seen on the bottle in Star Trek: Nemesis was designed by Monica Fedrick. [1]

Two Chateau Picard wine bottles were sold as Lot #27 in the 40 Years of Star Trek: The Collection auction. The winner paid US$6,600, even though the pre-sale estimate was 500 to 700 dollars. After the sale, the auctioneer remarked "That's probably a record for empty wine bottles."

A deleted scene from Star Trek Nemesis showed Picard sharing a quiet drink of the wine with Data after Riker's wedding.

Chateau Picard is mentioned in the novel The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 2 as being the wine of choice of Jeff Carlson in 1996.
