They like to drink wine on "Game of Thrones." A lot of wine. And, now you can, too, and make believe you're one of the characters will doing it.
The wildly successful HBO series has partnered with Vintage Wine Estates of Santa Rosa, CA, to release a trio of "Game of Thrones" wines.

“Given the prominent role of wine on 'Game of Thrones' and our previous success in the beverage category, an officially licensed wine for the show feels like a natural extension for our fans,” said Jeff Peters, HBO's director of licensing and retail, in a statement. “ 'Game of Thrones' wines most definitely will add to the fan experience as the battle for the Iron Throne heats up heading into the final seasons.”
The wines are a "proprietary" red blend and a Chardonnay, each priced at $19.99, and a Cabernet Sauvignon priced at $39.99.
As actor Peter Dinkelage, in his role as the wine-loving Tyrion Lannister, says, “Everything’s better with some wine in the belly.”
