Now that we’re all heartbroken that the last episode of the series has aired, we get one more taste tonight as the documentary Game of Thrones: The Last Watch covers the making of the final season. Weep into your goblets filled with wine from the Amalfi Coast.
- White: Emilia Clarke (who plays Mother of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen) drank this in Rome last February after filming, a white blend of Falanghina, Ginestra and Pepella (never even heard of those last two – Italy has thousands of grapes!). It’s $33 and sounds delicious.
- Red: I just had wine from the Amalfi Coast for the first time. The owner of Bergamot Wine Club gave me this 2016 Marisa Cuomo Furore Rosso and I loved it. Their site has excellent notes too (“It has a beautifully velvet texture, but think old velvet as in a vintage fabric or furniture”). They also note that the “vertically terraced maze of vineyards that scale the cliffs above the village of Furore are truly something out of a fantasy series.” I think I’m onto something here with my GoT pairing!!! This was part of their February club shipment but you can find it here for $23.
