HBO Global Licensing has signed a new deal with Vintage Wine Estates for a line of wines inspired by the fantasy television series.

Wine has always featured prominently in the scenes of Westeros and now fans can enjoy a Chardonnay, Red Blend or Cabernet Sauvignon with the show's seventh season that was recently revealed to be hitting screens in July.

Made by Vintage Wine Estates and acclaimed winemaker Bob Cabral, a fan of the show, the Game of Thrones Chardonnay, Red Blend and Cabernet Sauvignon come from specially selected vineyard lots and are aged in the finest oak barrels. With the Game of Thrones wines, Cabral, who was named Winemaker of the Year in 2011 by Wine Enthusiast and has crafted more than 100 wines scoring 95 points or higher on the 100-point scale, was aiming for wines with layers of complexity and flavor.

“I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan, and these wines capture the complexity of the drama,” said Cabral. “But the wines also have great pedigree. We source grapes from premier vineyard sites and use the finest winemaking techniques to create wines of incredible richness and texture.”

The three wines each sport a sigil of one of the iconic family houses from the show; the 2016 Chardonnay, Central Coast sports the golden lion head of Lannister while the Targaryen's three-headed dragon adorns the 2014 Red Blend, Paso Robles. Finally, House Stark's direwolf is represented on the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley.

The Chardonnay and Red Blend will be available March 13th, and the Cabernet Sauvignon will be available March 20th online. The wines will also be available in stores in April.
