Bert is fond of wine.
In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, there is no character named Bert. However, Davos has two goalers while incarcerated. One is described as "broad and squat, with thick shoulders and huge strong hands"; Davos names him Porridge as a result of him regularly bringing Davos porridge, and considers him the kinder and more personable of the two, even suspecting he feeds the rats. The other is older and described as "stooped and sallow", and is called Lamprey due to once bringing Davos half a lamprey pie (keep in mind that lamprey pie is considered a delicacy). It is unknown if Bert is based on either of them, although he matches Porridge's description more. Just like with Lamprey and Porridge, Davos is not aware of Bert's real name (at least until Shireen informs him.)
