Game of Thrones wines bring you to Westeros

You may have noticed the characters on Game of Thrones drink an awful lot of wine.

After the success of their beer, HBO recently launched the ‘Game of Thrones’ wine, an exclusive line of Game of Thrones-themed wines, made in partnership with Californian wine company Vintage Wine Estates. It will add to the fan experience as the battle for the Iron Throne heats up heading into the final seasons.

“Given the prominent role of wine on Game of Thrones and our previous success in the beverage category, an officially licensed wine for the show feels like a natural extension for our fans”, said Jeff Peters, director of HBO’s licensing and retail.

The wines are made in partnership with Vintage Wine Estates, based in Santa Rosa, California. It owns a collection of wineries from all over California, such as Napa Valley’s Clos Pegase and Swanson Vineyards. They were crafted by Healdsburg winemaker Bob Cabral.

He said in a statement“I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan, and these wines capture the complexity of the drama […] but the wines also have a great pedigree. We source grapes from premier vineyard sites and use the finest winemaking techniques to create wines of incredible richness and texture.”

The range consists of three premium bottles — a Chardonnay from the Central Coast ($29.95), a red blend from Paso Robles ($29.95), and a cabernet sauvignon from Napa Valley ($74.95). They are available via GameofThronesWines.com. 
With a viewership of about 23.3 million for the last series of the show, the wines could prove a success among the many fans who want to emulate their favorite wine drinking characters.
As Tyrion Lannister use to say, “Everything’s better with some wine in the belly”.
