Brace Yourself: Game of Thrones Wine is Coming

Illustration for article titled Brace Yourself: Game of Thrones Wine is Coming

Winter is coming...and after that, it's spring, and time for Game of Thrones season 5 — along with a series of wines themed from Westeros and beyond.


The wines are a project of Sydney, Australia-based Common Ventures The twelve different varieties are all themed for a different group — the Great Houses Tyrell, Lannister, Stark, Greyjoy, Arryn, Martell, Baratheon, and Targaryen (LOL, nobody likes the Tullys — even House Arryn gets a wine and they don't), along with the Wildlings, White Walkers, Night's Watch, and Dothraki. There are both reds and whites, running the gamut from Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay to Cabernet, Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Shiraz, all of which are going to retail for $20 in the US.

Common Ventures claims the "headstrong and robust" houses are getting reds while the "cunning and mysterious" houses are getting whites, but that makes me think they should probably actually go watch the show for maybe the first time, since the Lannisters have a red and the Starks have a white. Still, it was probably a good idea on their part to avoid a Purple Wedding-themed wine, so at least there's that.

I will never get tired of that gif.



Holding out for Blackwater absinthe.
