And now, you can drink wine specially branded for your GoT viewing experience.

HBO and Vintage Wine Estates have partnered up to bring you a line of Game of Thrones wines, which includes a Chardonnay, a red blend and a reserve-style Cabernet Sauvignon. The line will be available in Spring 2017.

“Any fan of Game of Thrones appreciates the role wine plays in the saga,” Pat Roney, the president and CEO of Vintage Wine Estates, said in a statement. “We are very excited to partner with HBO to give those fans some delicious wines to sip as they plot their own paths to the Iron Throne.”

This wine is the least HBO can give us, since Game of Thrones is starting to near its end.https-blueprint-api-production-s3-amazonaws-com-uploads-card-image-294263-got_reserve

“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. “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.”

If you think you might have heard of Thrones alcohol before, you’re not wrong.

In 2014, HBO partnered with Brewery Ommegang to launch Game of Thrones beer. That same year, an Australian company released unofficial GoT wines called Wines of Westeros – although their website now appears to be defunct.

Game of Thrones wines will be available nationally in 750ml bottles in Spring 2017. Suggested retail price for Game of Thrones Chardonnay and Game of Thrones Red Wine is $19.99, and Game of Thrones Cabernet Sauvignon is $39.99.
