If there’s one thing (besides murder) that the families on HBO’s Game of Thrones know better than anyone else, it has to be how to pick a good wine.
As the world of Game of Thrones gets darker and rougher, fans might soon find themselves needing a pick-me-up and one company has come up with the perfect solution: The Wines of Westeros, a new line of wines inspired by the HBO series.
The Wines of Westeros, a side project by Common Ventures, will introduce the world to 12 wines inspired by 12 various houses including the House of Baratheon, the House of Lannister and the House of Stark.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Common Ventures’ representative Jane Burlop previewed that the taste of each wine will reflect the personality of the house its meant to represent:
“The reds are all associated with the houses that are head strong and robust. The whites on the other hand are more cunning, preceptive and mysterious.”
The Wines of Westeros are set to launch some time next year, just in time for fans to enjoy as they tune in for Game of Thrones‘ fifth season.
Make sure to check out the details on all 12 Wines of Westeros below and don’t forget to share your thoughts in the comments section below. Note: All Wine descriptions courtesy of the Wines of Westeros’ official site.
