The Walking Dead wine range launches just in time for new season


Popular AMC TV series ‘The Walking Dead’ has launched a range of wines in partnership with Lot18.

The zombie series is the latest to get the customised wine treatment, following in the recent footsteps of Game of Thrones, Outlander and The Bachelor.

Wine labels for those last two shows were sourced and created by New York-based Lot18, the same retailer and merchant that has sourced three red wines based on main characters in The Walking Dead, according to Decanter.

Its announcement was timed to coincide with the new season of the show being launched in the US.

The wines, all from California and designed to fit each character’s personality, include:

  • Negan – California Bourbon Barrel Red Blend, made up of 73% Merlot, 18% Zinfandel and 9% Petite Sirah
  • Daryl Dixon – 2016 California Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Rick Grimes – 2016 California Petite Sirah

‘Like Daryl’s crossbow, this is a wine you can count on to always hit the mark,’ said Lot18 of the California Cabernet in the range.

It said that the wines were only available for a limited time on its website, with each bottle priced at $22. Three bottles cost $59.
