House of the Dragon: the stunning 3D animated billboard for the Game of Thrones spin-off

House of the Dragon

House of the Dragon is getting closer and closer to release and the producers are now advertising it (also) in Times Square, with a beautiful 3D animated billboard, which showcases the dragons that give the title to the spin-off series of The Throne of Swords. You can see it below.

The short video was shared by the official House of the Dragon Twitter profile, which writes: "The dragons have landed in Times Square". The bill then reminds us that the show is scheduled for August 21, 2022. However, this is the release date for the United States of America. In Italy it will already be August 22, 2022: the series will be broadcast simultaneously.

House of the Dragon will be visible, in Italy, via Sky (Sky Atlantic channel). The synopsis of the plot reads: "Based on the novel" Fire and Blood "by George R.R. Martin, the highly anticipated HBO series is set 200 years before the events mentioned in" Game of Thrones "and tells the story of House Targaryen, bringing in scene the intrigues, the betrayals and the clashes that will lead to the bloody war of succession known as "Dance of the dragons". " Matt Smith (Doctor Who) will be Daemon Targaryen, while Emma D'Arcy (Secret Love) will be Rhaenyra Targaryen.

Several months ago, House of the Dragon was seen by Martin who said what he thought.

‘House Of The Dragon’ Wines Are Here For The ‘Game Of Thrones’ Prequel’s August 21 Premiere

House of the Dragon, the much-hyped prequel to Game of Thrones, is coming to HBO and HBO Max on August 21. The series is based on author George R.R. Martin’s book, Fire & Blood. It’s set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones and tells the story of the House Targaryen.

That’s good news for GOT fans, but even those who don’t watch the show can enjoy House of the Dragon wines, a new lineup that was vinted and bottled by Seven Kingdoms Cellars, a division of California-based Vintage Wine Estates.

The wines on offer include an Oregon Pinot Noir, a California Cabernet Sauvignon, and a red blend from the Lodi appellation in California. The brand utilizes a different winemaker for each varietal and growing region to create wines that represent each appellation.

This partnership is another collaboration between Vintage Wine Estates and Warner Bros., who also teamed up on a line of Game of Thrones wines that launched in spring 2019 before the final season debuted. Here’s what you’ll be drinking, should you choose to pair the new House of the Dragon series with a bottle of red.

This Pinot Noir is a good example of Oregon’s signature varietal, and under guidance from winemaker David O’Reilly, it’s sourced equally from four different wine growing areas—Applegate Valley, Illinois Valley, Rogue Valley and Willamette Valley—and made in a fruit-driven style.

The grapes were fermented in a combination of small open-top fermenters and stainless steel fermenting tanks, with selected yeasts propagated from cellars in Burgundy. It was pressed during the last days of fermentation and matured in a combination of small French oak barrels and larger stainless steel tanks for eight months.

The garnet-colored wine has aromatics of tart red cherry and cranberry, followed by subtle earthy and savory notes. The palate is medium-bodied, with silky textures and bright red fruit that shows a bit darker in profile than the nose. It’s 13.5% ABV.

Winemaker Nancy Walker enlisted multiple California wine-growing regions to source fruit for this Cabernet Sauvignon, creating a final blend that’s rich and complex. The wine is aged nine to 12 months in French oak barrels and is finished for three more months in ex-bourbon barrels. That latter step imparts a bolder and more intense character.

The 14.4% ABV wine is dense and jammy, with notes of cherry tobacco and creamy vanilla leading to a long, mouth-coating finish.

Located directly east of San Francisco at the edge of the Sacramento River Delta, the Lodi appellation is noted for its Mediterranean climate, distinctive sandy soils and heritage old vines.

To make this red blend, winemaker Tami McKay leaned on the classics—it’s a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Zinfandel, 20% Petite Verdot and 8% Malbec. It’s aged in medium-toast French oak barrels for nine months to smooth off the rough edges and bottled at 13.9% ABV.

The wine is velvety and dark in color, with aromas of cocoa, cranberry and black currant. Rich maple, dark red fruit, toffee and creamy caramel follow, coating the palate, before it finishes with layers of dark berries and coffee.

House of the Dragon wines are available online and in select retail locations across the country. The Pinot Noir, Red Blend and Cabernet Sauvignon are priced at a reasonable $20, so you can try one or pick up the whole lineup.
