Hi Natalie,

I spent the morning reading stories in the weekend newspapers about Game of Thrones ...

Who do you think will triumph?

I'm betting on Daenerys.


Yes, there are Game of Thrones branded wines, but as the Mother of Wine Flagons, I suggest you look beyond the shores of Westoros.

There's plenty of fire and ice among my wine picks for you:

BC Stores (stock), Alberta, LCBO (stock), SAQ (stock), NB, NS, Canada.

You can change which updates you receive from me.

I raise my medieval goblet to you!


P.S. Get your game on before Game of Thrones and join me in this:
