Enjoy these custom made wines, each named after a different feuding group in the hit HBO show.
The hit TV series “Game of Thrones,” inspired by George R.R. Martin’s book series “A Song of Ice and Fire,” has given way to tons of official and homemade merchandise. Mugs, swords, clothing, all crafted to celebrate the fantasy series. Now you can not only dress like an inhabitant of King’s Landing, but also drink like one as well with The Wines of Westeros collection.
Created as a side project for Sydney-based advertising agency Common Ventures, these smartly-designed bottles are a must for a true fan. Fueled by the passion they had for the show, the team set to create wine that would match their favorite characters. Jane Burhop of Common Ventures told PSFK that pairing of wines and houses were carefully mulled over, “The reds are all associated with the houses that are head strong and robust. The whites on the other hand are more cunning, perceptive and mysterious.”
The wine itself will be from local Australian wineries to provide delicious, full flavored libations and not just as a collectible item for a fan’s shelf. Burhop further explained that they wanted the wine to be part of the viewing experience:
Whether this becomes a coveted item for the fans or a bottle that is opened with every episode, this wine is made to be drunk with friends and to help soften the blow of the shock and heartache as our favourite characters are slowly killed off.
If you’re looking for a particular type of wine, the Arryn, Greyjoy, White Walker, Wilding and Stark bottles are Sauvignon Blancs, the Baratheon and Lannister clan bottles are Pinot Noirs, the Dothraki is a Merlot, the Tyrells are represented as a Chardonnay, the Martells with a Cabernet Sauvignon, and both House Targaryen and the Night’s Watch are Shiraz wines.
All of these wines are available for pre-order, will cost around $20 AUS per bottle and is expected to be released just in time for the new season of the HBO hit series, and will be shipping internationally. So prepare your goblet, a box of tissues, and let the wine follow.
