Downton Abbey – Wine Release

Downton Abbey has become a television phenomena that has sparked such things as Tourist Attractions, spin off parodies, and even clothing lines. So it’s not a long shot or not a shock that Downton Abbey now has a line of wine coming out. A company that goes by the name of “Wine That Rocks” have also produced wine for Grateful Dead, Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd.
They have teamed up with Dulong Grands Vins de Bordeaux to produce a vintage wine from the vines and soil of the same period of 1900s. The types of whites and clarets are the same as those imported by the English aristocrats from France. This family of wine makers have been mastering wines for the past five generations. For the past 130 years, Dulong Grands Vins de Bordeaux have been making the worlds best wines, so this is something the Crawley’s family would be proud to drink in Downton. 
The wines will be distributed as single bottles and and packaged sets to be distributed in the US and Canada just in time for the airing of Season 4.
