‘Game Of Thrones’ And Other TV Shows That Inspired Wine

There was a time not that long ago that great television shows were remembered through re-runs. And maybe a coffee mug. But now, they’re being memorialized in bottles of wine.

Game of Thrones is the latest to get their own line of wine. The HBO show with a cult following has partnered with Vintage Wine Estates in California for three varietals that start at $19.99 a bottle; it’s the perfect addition to what will likely be a gory killing spree during the show’s final season. Heck, the show already has a line of beer.

Did you realize how many other shows can also lay claim to having their own wine? It’s kind of ridiculous. Here are just a few.

Netflix is getting in on the action with Pinot by Tituss — the name of Kimmy’s outspoken best friend, Titus Andromedon. “To be enjoyed by all the fabulous Kings and Kweens.”

This series of wine includes the Undead Apocalyptic Red, Cadaver Cab Sauv, Still Alive by Way of the Antidote and the Zinfection Blight Zinfandel.

Five varietals, all from different regions of Italy. Let’s pour one out for Tony.

What may seem like a complete dichotomy, the dingier version of the Beverly Hillbillies have their own wines — and they don’t come in a box. How sophisticated of them.

Feel the nobility with these French Bordeauxs. Ironically, they’re pretty inexpensive and can be found at stores for commoners, like World Market.

Outlander

Truth be told, the labels are what really sell this wine. Released in early November, each character has a limited edition of 2,500 bottles each. Might be the perfect Christmas gift for the Outlander fan in your life.
