Ever wondered what Tyrion lannister, Westeros most notorious epicurean, might have poured while muttering 'The world is full of wine'? Well, look no further: the answer is provided here - a most comprehensive list of all wines available to the throne. There are no varieties we would be able to get in our world though. Winepair has made a fair attempt to match varieties available to us... Nothing too inspiring though. Since the new season is expected to launch in July, I may recommend a crisp, mineralic Riesling with a bit of residual sugar (just a bit) from the romantic Middle Rhine Valley. Plenty of castles there, and in the Rhine Valley they used to rob and kill each other at every opportunity, too.
