Make It A Classy Night With Official Downton Abbey Wines


If you’re familiar with Downton Abbey, then you probably know already that Lord Grantham and the other members of Crawley clan are quite the wine aficionados. Wine’s a pretty big part of the show. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the show’s producers gave the green light to an official Downton Abbey wine.

Wines that Rock (also responsible for various music-themed wines such as Grateful Dead Wine, Rolling Stones’ Forty Licks Merlot, Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon Cabernet Sauvignon and The Police’s Synchronicity) will be offering a Downton Abbey Bordeaux this coming Wednesday.

Edward Deitch, a James Beard award-winning food critic, critiqued the wine for and mentioned that it’s “really too young to appreciate fully at this point.” It’s a blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and malbec, and it has some pretty minor flavor notes, which Deitch believes can be alleviated by letting the wine breath for a few hours before you before enjoying a glass.
