game of thrones, wine, hbo, vintage wine estatesWe've already seen "Game of Thrones" beer, and now, the favorite beverage of Westeros is getting in on the libation-making fun, too.

HBO has announced that it's partnering with a winery in California to produce three different varieties that are tied to the show. Vintage Wine Estates, based in Santa Rosa, will bottle a "Thrones"-themed red blend, Cabernet Sauvignon, and chardonnay, ranging in price from $19.99 to $39.99.

Considering how much Cersei and Tyrion love the beverage, this seems like a no-brainer partnership for HBO. A rep for the cable outlet acknowledged as much in a statement announcing the new line of 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, director of licensing and retail for HBO, in the 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."

Sounds like a winning combination to us. We're almost as excited for this wine as we are for season seven. Almost.
