Game of Thrones wine range to go on sale

The HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones has inspired everything from T-shirts to board games, figurines and cookbooks.

But fans can now drown their sorrows, Cersei-style, with a new set of Game of Thrones-inspired wines.

The Wines of Westeros range is made up of 12 different Australian wines, each representing a major house or group from George RR Martin’s book and TV series.

“The reds are all associated with the houses that are headstrong and robust. The whites, on the other hand, are more cunning, perceptive and mysterious,” said Jane Burhop of Common Ventures, the Australian agency behind the wines.

Houses Arryn, Greyjoy and Stark are sauvignon blancs, as are the White Walker and Wildling bottles. The Lannister and Baratheon families are pinot noirs, while fellow power-hungry houses Tyrell and Martell are a chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon respectively. The fearsome Dothraki tribes are a merlot, while the Night’s Watch and House Targaryen are represented by shiraz.
