Reading can be thirsty work. Why not kick back and relax with a nice glass of wine? We've done hours of research (hiccup) on the best fictional wines and their real world counterparts. Bottoms up!
Game of Thrones – Cabernet Sauvignon
Just like Tyrion Lannister always says, we too like to drink and know things. And we know that fans of Game of Thrones and red wine will enjoy some Dragon’s Tears. This elegant wine goes well with cheese and the blood your enemies…or maybe pasta instead. Or you could buy the official wine of GoT and give a toast to your favorite series.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir, you're a star! The wine that took the internet by storm can now be yours! This red wine has flavors of red fruits accented by wisps of cedar and leather. Yum! You don’t want to miss out on Titus Andromedon’s ode to wine. Buy it here.
The Vampire Diaries – Pinot Grigio
Fans of The Vampire Diaries will know how much these young immortals love to drink. Here’s a fun drinking game to play at home. Just simply take a sip of some Vampire wine every time a fictional vamp takes a bite. This copper colored Pinot Grigio will have you tasting roses and pears. Way better than the alternative!
Scandal – Syrah
It's unclear what brand of wine Olivia Pope likes to drink, but we do know she enjoys a big glass (or bottle) of Syrah wine. Considered to be one of the most flavorful and full bodied of wines, Syrah is not for rookie wine drinkers. If you feel like donning your gladiator gear and giving this wine a go, then we would suggest trying a bottle of Boom Boom.

The Magicians – Rosé
Now here’s a book and TV series you can enjoy with a glass of wine. Magical drinking abounds with this group of wizards and witches. Try to keep up by drinking this aptly labeled “The Magician's Assistant.” This light rosé will have you tasting notes of delicious strawberries. Ten points to Gryffindor….er, we mean The Magicians.
