The Seven Kingdom wine collection is bound to make your "Game of Thrones" experience more realistic. The HBO hit series that swept the world with gripping characters and kingdom wars is now making audiences more in touch with the "GoT" world.
As published in The Huffington Post via a statement to Entertainment Weekly, Jeff Peters, director of licensing and retail for HBO, noted that the prominent role of wine on the series and their previous success in the beverage category made coming up with a licensed wine a natural extension to fans. The collection is a collaboration between the network and Vintage Wine Estates that's set to be released in the spring of 2017.
With the widespread popularity of the show, the price range is expected to cost an arm and a leg. Fortunately, according to the A.V. Club, it's contrary to what people initially believe, as the tags are very friendly to the smallfolk. The red and chardonnay will go for $20 each, while the Cabernet Sauvignon is twice as much at $40 a bottle. This creates a much better viewing-party whilst bringing on the Lannisters' goblet game.
There are remarkable moments in the series where wine was a very silent but powerful factor, and this is especially true with Cersei and Tyrion. Even with just a sip or wave of a goblet, characters convey the powerful scenes with such class and sass. According to Tyrion Lannister's wise words, "Everything's better with some wine in the belly."
The release of the wine collection is also said to be in time for the much-awaited season 7 of the blockbuster series. This new venture is not only for the show's followers, but at the same time, it's also for people who appreciate a good glass of wine. What's not to be excited for in the upcoming spring?
