If you’re a Game of Thrones fan chances are you’ve spent more than a few Sunday nights obsessing over the battle for the Iron Throne. As if your post-episode emotional hangover isn’t enough, now you can be physically hung-over too. The show has inspired a number of beers over its first four seasons, thanks to Brewery Ommegang. Now, Australian company Common Venture is bringing us Wines of Westeros, a fan made project that we’re sure will attract some serious attention.

The wines will be available just in time for season 5, which is set to premiere spring of 2015. Each of the 12 wines will represent a major house or group from the series:

Sauvignon Blanc: Stark, House Arryn, Greyjoy, Wildling, White Walkers

Pinot Noir: Lannister, Baratheon

Chardonnay: Tyrell

Cabernet Sauvignon: Martell

Merlot: Dothraki

Shiraz: Night’s Watch, House Targaryen

Jane Burhop of Common Ventures explained the thought behind the pairings, “The reds are all associated with the houses that are headstrong and robust. The whites, on the other hand, are more cunning, perceptive and mysterious.” Each bottle will cost around $20 and will be available to order prior to the first episode of new season. It’s safe to say that we want to try them all so cheers to George RR Martin for giving us plenty of reasons to drink.
