Who knew that the vineyards of the Seven Kingdoms could be brought to Colorado Springs?

HBO Global Licensing and Vintage Wine Estates have partnered to bring fans across the U.S., including those in Colorado Springs, Game of Thrones Wines.

That means fans envious of the Westeros residents who enjoy their grapes at their leisure can now sip a glass of GoT-inspired wine while watching the season premiere Sunday night. 

The wines "capture the complexity of the drama,” said the acclaimed winemaker behind the line, Bob Cabral, in a statement. “But the wines also have great pedigree. We source grapes from premier vineyard sites and use the finest winemaking techniques to create wines of incredible richness and texture.” 

The line of wines includes a  2016 Central Coast Chardonnay, a 2015 Paso Robles red blend and a 2014 Napa Valley reserve-style Cabernet Sauvignon. Each of the wine bottles, complete with gold labels decked out by images of the Seven Kingdoms, cost $19.99.

Where to find the wine:  Several Colorado Springs retailers, including Costco, Queen Liquor and Powers Liquor Mart, are listed as selling the wine. Visit the Game of Thrones Wines retail locator here.

Season 7 of "Game of Thrones" premieres tonight (July 17) on HBO at 8 p.m.
