In recent years, television has taken over from cinema as for the quality and popularity of its productions, and this is also reflected in the field of popular culture and, of course, also in the world of wine, that reinvents itself constantly, seeking new ways to entice consumers.
In this sense, there are already several wine producers who, inspired by the most successful series, are launching to the market “thematic” wines, such as “Wines of Westeros”, based on the well known HBO series “Game of Thrones”.
This range of wines, produced by Australian company Common Ventures, consists of 12 varieties named according to the various families and characters of the television production, with a minimalistic design and several varieties of grapes used in its production, such as Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Merlot…
Also animation classics as “The Simpsons” have their dedicated bottles, in this case just a graphic concept performed by designers Constantin Bolimond and Dimitry Patsukevich, who adapted the strokes of Marge and Homer Simpson in the form of typical “Bordeaux” bottles. Although we know that the characters of the veteran American series have more fondness for beer, we are sure they will not despise a tasting of these wines, with still no date of release.
And finally, good fiction with The Sopranos as protagonists. Although the series aired its last chapters a few years ago, it is still possible to get the different varieties dedicated to its protagonists, with prices ranging from $ 10 to $ 30 and grape varieties as Chianti, Pinot Grigio or Pinot Noir, that will make us feel like we were having dinner at Artie Bucco’s restaurant, the scene of many of the adventures of the Italian-American gangsters.
