After 2017’s successful debut of GAME OF THRONES wine, Vintage Wine Estates and HBO® Licensing and Retail are expanding their line of premium wines come summer. This time they are releasing a Pinot Noir for all you red wine fans! Since the Emmy® Award-winning HBO® drama GAME OF THRONES features wine in many of its scenes from the Seven Kingdoms, the idea to give fans their own sigil-emblazoned bottlings became quite popular.
The new GAME OF THRONES Pinot Noir, made by Vintage Wine Estates and acclaimed winemaker Bob Cabral, will appeal to connoisseurs and casual wine drinkers alike as it comes from Oregon’s Willamette Valley, one of the premier regions for Pinot Noir in America. The wine is scheduled to make its debut this month.
Retailing at $19.99, the wine is described as “elegant and bursting with complex aromas and flavors.” according to Cabral. Two new cork designs will debut imprinted with either the House Tyrell or House Martell sigil.
“The new Pinot Noir is a worthy addition to the GAME OF THRONES line of wines, as it was inspired by the complexity and nuances of this riveting drama,” noted Cabral. “Oregon is renowned for fine Pinot Noir, and this wine captures the essence of the variety and the exceptional vineyards from which it is made.”
The first GAME OF THRONES wines, a Chardonnay, Red Blend and Cabernet Sauvignon, were introduced in the spring of 2017. With the GAME OF THRONES wines, Cabral, who was named Winemaker of the Year in 2011 by Wine Enthusiast Magazine 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. The wines debuted to critical and popular acclaim and have enjoyed strong sales.
The GAME OF THRONES 2016 Pinot Noir will be introduced at the Aspen Food & Wine Classic in June and will be available through the website www.gameofthroneswines.com. The wine will also be available in stores around the country later in the summer.
