Houston Rockets Rumors
Yao Ming’s Yao Family Winery will auction an NFT wine pairing on Wednesday with some of the proceeds going toward community organisations fighting against anti-Asian discrimination in the US. The former Houston Rockets star founded the Napa Valley-winery, with the first wines released in 2011.
This 48-hour auction – called The Chop Drop – sees 200 bottles of the vineyard’s The Chop wine paired with an NFT “digital collectible”. “A special auction will be held for bottle #11 of The Chop and NFT #11, a one-of-one offering in homage to the year that Yao Family Wines released its first vintage, and for the number Yao Ming wore during his NBA career,” the winery said in a press release.
