Vintage Wine Estates and HBO have partnered together to produce a line of wine inspired by Game of Thrones!
Following the highly successful collaboration with Brewery Ommegang for Game of Thrones-inspired beer, this new partnership with Vintage Wine Estates has been designed with the show and its characters in mind. Often sipped on screen and within the pages of Game of Thrones, the new collection of Seven Kingdoms Wines will include a Chardonnay, a proprietary red blend and a reserve-style Cabernet Sauvignon.
“Any fan of Game of Thrones appreciates the role wine plays in the saga. We are very excited to partner with HBO to give those fans some delicious wines to sip as they plot their own paths to the Iron Throne.” – Pat Roney, President and CEO, Vintage Wine Estates.
“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. Game of Thrones wines most definitely will add to the fan experience as the battle for the Iron Throne heats up heading into the final seasons.” – Jeff Peters, Director of Licensing and Retail for HBO.
The Lannisters are perhaps the family that most enjoys wine in Game of Thrones, as siblings Cersei and Tyrion sip it at various points of the show, but the series often sees wine play a role in scenes throughout the Seven Kingdoms, from Dorne to The Reach. Tyrion’s legendary wit and wisdom tend to be most in evidence when wine is close at hand. Arguably his most viral quote, “That’s what I do: I drink and I know things.”
Interested in making the quote your own? Game of Thrones wines will be available nationally in 750ml bottles in Spring 2017. Suggested retail price for single bottles of the Chardonnay and Red Blend is $19.99; Cabernet Sauvignon is $39.99.
