Downton Abbey Gets Namesake Wine


Family-owned French winery Grands Vins de Bordeaux has released a new line of vino inspired by the ITV period drama “Downton Abbey.”

The Downton Abbey Wine Collection features two blends from the Bordeaux region of France: a Blanc white wine and a Claret red wine that will be available in the U.S. Nov. 1 and in Europe and Australia later this year. The line is also available online at and

The collection is being distributed in the U.S. by PL360 Beverage Partners.

"We are excited to launch the Downton Abbey Wine Collection, made in the finest Bordeaux winemaking tradition," said William Zysblat, co-creator of the wines. "Our collaboration with the Dulong family made perfect sense, as we wanted the same vines, soil and region used to produce the wines from the Downton era. Having Dulong as our winemaker allows us to create accessible wines that we truly believe the Crawley Family would have been proud to serve at their table.”
