12 houses. 12 temptations. Where does your loyalty lie?
Your sister roots for Sansa, your brother mimics Jeffrey, annoying the hell out of you, your mother wants you to be more like Rob Stark, you grandparents sound everyday more like Grand master Pycell dragging its chains and you, well you, just want to watch the actual show!…But you can’t. The season 5 of the Game of Thrones series will only come out next year. Alright, so you can’t watch it…but you can drink it.
Hear ye hear ye, there’s wine in the realm! A collection based on ‘Game of Thrones’ wines is coming soon. The projec was born from the minds of fans of the show at Common Ventures, an australian creative agency.
HBO’s most watched series inspired this enterprise although they don’t have an official connection to Game of Thrones, they have a pretty good grip on characterizing their wine. “
Wines of Westeros offers a different wine variety for each house on the show. For the Northerners Stark’s they have created a bottle of a Sauvingnon Blanc, for the house Targaryen a Shiraz and for the Golden Lions they have a Pinot Noir. “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,” said Jane Burhop of Common Ventures.
A bottle of the Game of Thrones wine will cost roughly around 15€ and is already available for preorder. Like the great Oberyn Martell once said, when it comes to wine — “I don’t choose sides”.
