Feeding your Game of Thrones addiction with a lion’s share of GoT-themed booze seems sensible.
If you’re beer-inclined, you could do far worse than sipping on one of Brewery Ommegang’s limited edition GoT series beers whilst pining over Jon Snow. But what if wine is your boozy beverage of choice?
Members of the Australian PR firm Common Ventures happen to be huge fans of the show, as well as huge wine enthusiasts. Using their design smarts and teaming up with top Australian wineries, the firm has created a 12-wine series called The Wines of Westeros.
Jane Burhop of Common Ventures tells PSFK that a lot of thought went into choosing the right wines to go with each House, so it’s not just an exercise in clever packaging. She says, “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.”
“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.”
Common Ventures estimates that each bottle will fill about 7.5 standard goblets, and Eater reports that each bottle will cost $20 AUD ($18.75 USD). You can fill out this preorder form to be notified once the wines are available. The wines will launch in time for the new season expected to air next year, and will ship internationally.
Here are all 12 bottle designs, with information on varietal and vintage.
