The 'A Song of Ice and Fire' Domain


On the Wines of Westeros

There’s quite a variety of wines mentioned in the course of the A Song of Ice and Fire series, most notably the golden wine of the Arbor and Dornish summerwine. Now, over at science blog The Last Word on Nothing, writer Sean Treacy looks into the science behind the wine in a world where seasons are erratic and can last years at a time. It’s a fun read, for those who wonder just how something like that might work in reality.
