Wine is Coming:Game of Thrones drink range to go on sale

Wines inspired by the major houses of George RR Martin’s world will be available in time for fifth season of the hit HBO fantasy series

The HBO fantasy Series Game Of Thrones has inspired everything from T-shirts to board games, figurines and cookbooks. But fans can now drown their sorrows, Cersei-style, with a new set of Game of Thrones-inspired wines.

The Wines Of westeros  range is made up of 12 different Australian wines, each representing a major house or group from George RR Martin’s book and TV series.

“The reds are all associated with the houses that are headstrong and robust. The whites, on the other hand, are more cunning, perceptive and mysterious,” said Jane Burhop of Common Ventures, the Australian agency behind the wines.


Houses Arryn, Greyjoy and Stark are sauvignon blancs, as are the White Walker and Wildling bottles. The Lannister and Baratheon families are pinot noirs, while fellow power-hungry houses Tyrell and Martell are a chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon respectively. The fearsome Dothraki tribes are a merlot, while the Night’s Watch and House Targaryen are represented by shiraz.

“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,” Burhop said.

A bottle of Westeros wine will cost about £11 ($20) and will be available to order by the time the fifth season premieres in 2015.

Game of Thrones is not the only pop-culture phenomenon to inspire drinkers: wines have previously been produced for Downton Abbey, Star Trek: Into Darkness and Fifty Shades of Grey.

The final episode of the fourth season of Game of Thrones was watched by 18.6 million in the US and was renewed for a fifth and sixth season in April.
