One wine to rule them all? How about four! And you don’t even need to journey all the way to the Inn at the Prancing Pony to enjoy them.
Warner Bros. announced on Monday that they are teaming up with Lot18 in order to release a limited supply of four different Lord of the Rings inspired wines. Each bottle is devoted to one of four beloved characters – Aragorn, Frodo, Galadriel, and Gandalf. The labels show stunning artwork depicting a silhouette of each character combined with an artistic representation of some of the iconic locations the Fellowship visited throughout the story including Minas Tirith, Bag End, and Caras Galadhon.
Production of the collection is limited to a mere 6000 bottles of each so, make sure you grab yours today! Wines can be purchased at Lot18 while supplies last.

2015 Aragorn Appellation Lussac – St. Émilion Contrôlée
If ever there was a wine fit for a king as mighty and honorable as Aragorn, this is it. A blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec, this unmatched red is from the Lussac-St.-Émilion appellation, once the site of historic battles and dreams of victory. Rich, concentrated and built to last, it’s intensely expressive of its terroir, displaying black-fruit flavors and polished tannins on the palate. Your quest for the consummate drinking experience ends here.
2016 Galadriel Bordeaux Blanc
The most noble, beautiful and powerful of the elven women is honored by this high-toned wine, a Bordeaux Blanc with piercing citrus flavors and remarkable concentration. Just as Galadriel is revered by the tree people and all those graced by her presence, this impressive white is a true crowd pleaser, imbuing an immediate sense of devotion with its charming embrace. Take a sip and fall under its ethereal spell.
2016 Frodo Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel
As honest and pure as a hobbit’s heart, this Zinfandel is crafted in honor of the most adventurous one of them all: Frodo Baggins, keeper of the ring. And just as hobbits are sturdier than they appear, so are the old vines that produced this red, which have endured for decades to survive – and flourish – against all odds. Vibrant flavors of blackberry, fig and spiced plum carry through to the warm, pleasing finish of this reliable wine.
2016 Gandalf Monterey County Pinot Noir
The great wizard Gandalf can only be embodied by a variety as respected and celebrated as Pinot Noir. Like the wise old wanderer, this subtle, yet complex red is unassuming at first glance, but quickly revealed to be spirited and persuasive, with black raspberry, alpine strawberry and forest floor flavors casting a spell over your palate, bringing you back for sip after sip. Give in to your sense of adventure and follow along.
