Dragaeran wine comes in two general types, traditional wine and a distilled variety that is closer to Brandy. Dragaerans make no categorical distinction between the types of wine production, but seem to tell the difference simply by knowing which vineyards produce which variety.

Most of the wine in the Empire is produced locally within the region where it is consumed. Some of the more famous and abundant wine-producing regions of the Empire include Khaavren, Bra-Moor and Aerethia. Wines from these regions are often exported far and wide for wealthy nobles across Dragaera.

Foreign wines (especially the distilled varieties) are even imported from the Eastern Kingdoms, most notably, the kingdom of Fenario which is renowned for its fruit wines, such as those from the Ailor region.

The shelf life of bottled wines could be extended at their peak with preservative sorcery. Perhaps because the resulting vintages often out-live the integrity of their corks, opening wine with heated tongs and a chilled feather is the norm.
