I have good news for anyone with good taste in books and who loves a great adventure. Limited-edition Lord of the Rings wine is now available to purchase and it actually sounds like it might be tasty.
The first thing you must know about these Lord of the Rings wine offerings is that there were only 6,000 bottles of each made. So it doesn't matter if folks are purchasing them separately or in a set — there are only 24,000 bottles, so you better hurry your little Hobbit feet over to Lot18 this instant to secure your own!

I'm sure the Prancing Pony Inn would be serving these wines as well if it wasn't, you know, located in Middle-earth and all.
Only available while supplies last, the collection pays homage to members of the Fellowship: Gandalf, Frodo Baggins, Aragorn, and Galadriel, Lady of Lothlórien. Individual bottles are set at a $20 and $25 price point, but you can pick up a set of the four for just $75! Don't worry, they sound as tasty as they do nerdy. Here's what makers Lot18 have to say about each bottle.
2016 Frodo Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel: 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 perfect balance of fruit, acidity, and structure, this wine features black raspberry, cherry, and forest floor flavors on the palate.
2016 Galadriel Bordeaux Blanc: Clean and fresh, with grapefruit, lemon, and lemongrass flavors, plus hint of dusty minerality on the finish.
2015 Aragorn Appellation Lussac-St. Émilion Contrôlée: Rich, concentrated, and built to last, this intensely expressive wine displays black-fruit flavors and polished tannins.
