Anyone who has turned on a TV, phone, tablet, or computer over the past few years knows what "winter is coming" means. It's usually a scientific fact but, in this instance, it's a line used frequently in Game of Thrones (GoT). With the seventh season on the way this summer, we want to ensure that your viewing parties are done right. With that being said, it's critical that you know that a Game of Thrones wine is coming. That's right, wine-ter is coming.
"Vintage Wine Estates announced that they've partnered with HBO to release three different officially licensed Game of Thrones wines--a Chardonnay (suggested retail $19.99), a Red Blend (suggested retail $19.99) and a Cabernet Sauvignon (suggested retail $39.99)."
Ok, I have got to get me some of these just because it's Game of Thrones and of course it's wine!! HBO and Santa Rosa Winery (Vintage Wine Estates) partnered together and released these Game of Thrones themed wines. They come in Proprietary red blend, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chardonnay ?

So, when can we get these? When Westeros freezes over? No. Winter is Coming, the GoT news source says,
"Both the House Lannister Chardonnay and House Targaryen red blend were released on Monday, March 13, while the House Stark Cabernet Sauvignon will be available on March 20.
If you enjoy your fine wines like Queen Cersei does, they're available atGameofThronesWines.com. All three will be available in stores starting in April."
You know what Tyrion says, "Everything's better with some wine in the belly." However, there might already be a Game of Thrones wine on the market, that has since gone undetected.
Girl & Dragon
"A shadow slips over the land, as the day turns to night.
Glittering stars turn on, one by one; the dragon has taken flight.
Down below, a girl awakes. Her heart beating; his wings beating.
He searched the world for her. And now they soar as one."
Girl & Dragon wines pair deliciously with fiery appetizers, perfect for upcoming spring parties like chipotle honey chicken skewers, creamy sweet chili shrimp and chorizo-gouda stuffed peppers.

Sound familiar to anyone else? It's a bit queen of dragons-esque, if you ask us.
As long as it doesn't upset Daenerys, we'll try it. We all know what happens to people who mess with her, and it usually involves flames.
