Warner Bros. worked with Lot18 on the line, according to EW. The result is four vintages, each inspired by a different character. The line consists of the 2016 Frodo Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel, 2016 Gandalf Monterey County Pinot Noir, 2015 Aragorn Appellation Lussac-St. Émilion Contrôlée, and 2016 Galadriel Bordeaux Blanc. From what we've seen, they look and sound perfect for serious fans.

The movie comparisons don't stop at the different names. Each is supposed to share characteristics with its inspiration; for example, the Frodo-inspired zinfandel is described as being "as honest and pure as a Hobbit's heart."
Lot18 released the bottles on Monday, and they'll be available as long as supplies last -- which, let's be honest, might not be long given how excited some fans seemed on Twitter.

There are 6,000 bottles of each vintage, and they range in price from $18 to $25 per bottle when purchased individually. The wines can also be purchased as a quartet for $75 or a case for $210.
This looks like the line wine-loving Lord of the Rings fans have been waiting for.
