We have official "Game of Thrones" beer but since there is so much wine drinking on the show, we were wondering why there isn't GoT-themed wine. Well now there is but it's fan-made side project by Common Ventures and "unofficial." But who cares? They took the initiative and Cersei and Tyrion can revel in the 12 different temptations based on the houses/groups in the George R. R. Martin novels/HBO show.
"official" Wines of Westeros site:
A mind needs wine as a sword needs a whetstone. Whether it’s a bottle from beyond the wall or a case from the cellars of the Iron Bank, keep your mind fit for the death of summer with the lion’s share of vino. Have a wench fetch a goblet, reject all wedding invitations and settle down for a long, harsh winter.
12 houses. 12 temptations. Where does your loyalty lie?
The wines include Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz, and Merlot and are named: The Arryn; The Stark; The Greyjoy; The Baratheon; The Dothraki; The Lannister; The Wildling; The Tyrell; The White Walker; The Martell; The Night's Watch; and The Targaryen. For example, The Dothraki 2014 Merlot is described as, "Born to fight and die in the saddle, the word thank-you does not exist. Filled with the desire of the Great Stallion, this wine will fuel your animal instincts and help you woo your Khaleesi."
Cases are available for pre-order, so grab your flagon of The White Walker and toast to the "God of Tits and Wine." Cheers!
