If you are among the hordes of television-watchers who have discovered the binge-worthy Game of Thrones series, good news! You can toast the upcoming 7th season with Game of Thrones wines. There are three bottles to choose from. This makes so much sense, considering that characters on the HBO series are frequently guzzling large goblets of wine. HBO partnered with Vintage Wine Estates of California to bring about this exciting opportunity. After all, how often does pop culture step into the real world to create an all new vintage? This is the type of occasion custom wine cellars are built for. No matter what wines you collect, they need to be stored in the right environment with a proper wine cooling unit such as WhisperKOOL.
Game of Thrones Wine
Three premium wines are being sold under the official Game of Thrones label. You can chose from a Central Coast chardonnay, a Paso Robles red blend, and a cabernet sauvignon from Napa Valley. The price tags are $29.95, $29.95, and $74.95 respectively. These specialty wines will be on sale online and at LCBO stores.
It’s not just the link to the show that makes these wines appealing. The winemaker who produced them is none other than Bob Cabral. He concocted the first 100-point pinot noir out of California. In addition, Cabral has more than a hundred 95-point to 100-point wines under his belt. For added intrigue, Cabral is himself a diehard Games of Thrones fan.

This new wine has been given a score of 89. It is a barrel-fermented chardonnay with a rich core of baked apple in butter and bracing lime acidity and subtle notes of smooth vanilla, smoke, and warm oak. It doesn’t take much imagination to think that the nobles of Westeros would choose this wine to go with a brazen feast.
