Now holding court in your wine cabinet is just-released Court of North Carolina, the second installment in the uberpopular NC State University Hallowed Places Collection of primo vintage vinos. You may remember when we introduced you to its inaugural bottle, The Brickyard, last fall—a limited-edition red wine blend in partnership with state winery Shelton Vineyards. Now, the Pack is back (!), uncorking a new limited varietal with the vineyard—the purchase of which supports student scholarships (#WITH!).
“After the success of the first wine in the series, we’re excited to partner with Shelton again to feature the university’s iconic Court of North Carolina on this edition,” says Christopher Boyer, assistant vice chancellor of strategic brand management at NC State. “Our licensed wine series highlights treasured parts of our campus, provides our students with real-world, hands-on opportunities and celebrates the university’s commitment to helping our state’s growing viticulture and wine tourism industries thrive.”
And as with its Brickyard predecessor, this bottle of red is also adorned with a frameworthy label designed by NCSU College of Design student Carter Avayou, and available for purchase exclusively on the vineyard’s website (or treat yourself in the vineyard’s tasting room). And act fast—the last lot sold out in sub-40 days. But if you get screwed (get it?) out of a bottle this time (hey, sip happens), look for the collection to craft future blends in partnership with vineyards across the state. So, for now, just another (must-have) brick in the wall—er, brickyard—if you will. And another reason to pour one out for the Pack. $45, sheltonvineyards.com
