Game of Thrones has finally succeeded in infiltrating every aspect of modern life, Ideal Wine Company has learned, with the release of its own range of wines.
Game of Thrones is everywhere
Game of Thrones – the fantasy TV series based on the best-selling novels – is pretty much everywhere, you can’t escape it. Let the Ideal Wine Company tell you how popular it is – last month, The Queen visited a Game of Thrones set on the latest royal visit to Belfast, Ireland.
Of course, the more popular it becomes, the more potential it has to make money. Look at Game of Thrones as the ultimate example. These days, it’s got such a rabid fan base, people are even having Game of Thrones weddings. Usually, such a high honour is reserved for a franchise as popular as Star Wars!
Released Just in Time for Season 5!
So it should surprise absolutely nobody that Game of Thrones has finally taken over the world of wine. According to various news sources, Australia-based Common Ventures has decided to release a range of Game of Thrones themed wines next spring, just in time for season 5!
Each wine has its own Game of Thrones themed concept; with twelve varieties all based on a different group in the series. Wines will be based on the Great Houses of Tyrell, Lannister, Stark, Greyjoy, Arryn, Martell, Baratheon and Taragaryen. Also featured, will be the Wildings, White Walkers, Night’s Watch and Dothraki.
A Label for Every Palette
Specifically, these wines will be of red and white varieties, and will take advantage of the heady flavours of a number of grapes, including Chardonnay, Cabernet, Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc.
According to Common Ventures, the “headstrong and robust” houses are the ones typified by hearty reds whilst the “cunning and mysterious” houses will be attached to whites.They’ll be sold for the rock bottom price of $20 per bottle in the US
At the Ideal Wine Company, we have to admit that we think the idea is fascinating; they’ll certainly sell well, and we’re eager to see how the idea will pan out. What has yet to be seen however, is if Common Ventures can uphold the standard of quality they have teased with their new Game of Thrones line of wines.
