(From Entertainment Weekly) Just in time for enduring your own scheming relatives over the holidays, Game of Thrones is releasing a line of wines.
The HBO hit has partnered with a Santa Rosa winery (Vintage Wine Estates) to release a “proprietary red blend” ($19.99), a Cabernet Sauvignon ($39.99), and a chardonnay ($19.99).
“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,” said Jeff Peters, Director of Licensing and Retail for HBO. “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.”
HBO has actually had a licensed beer vendor since the show’s second season, so it’s perhaps surprising the series has taken this long to add a line of wines.
