For some, good weed and good wine are all they are looking for in life, and thanks to the fine folks at Rebel Coast Winery, they can now get both in one simple package. Starting January 2018. the company will start selling the very first legal "Weed Wine.'
The wine, which is non-alcoholic, is described as tasting like a traditional California Sauvignon Blanc from Sonoma with high acid, citrus notes, and a crisp finish. It’s herbaceous marijuana on the nose, Sauvignon Blanc in the mouth. There are around 16 milligrams of THC in every bottle, which breaks down to around 4 milligrams per glass—6 milligrams less than the California limit of THC in edibles.
The new Sauvignon Blanc could be the first explicitly legal weed wine when it’s released in January 2018. Prop 64 in California legalized recreational adult use starting in 2018, but it also outlaws anyone from selling marijuana in the same place as tobacco or alcohol—including alcoholic marijuana wine. Since Rebel Coast’s Sauvignon Blanc is alcohol-free and it follows all the state laws. It won’t be the last offering, either. Paste reports that a rosé and sparkling are on the way next year.
Each bottle of Sauvignon Blanc is adorned with a tangerine-colored label with a marijuana leaf drawing and clean lettering. It’ll sell for $60 a bottle at recreational marijuana shops as soon as those shops are set up in the Golden State, and Rebel Coast is working on figuring out distribution to other states.
