“Downton Abbey” fans can now watch their favorite TV show while sipping on a wine inspired by the British period drama that has gained cult-like popularity among audiences around the world.

The same firm that produces wines in homage to the Grateful Dead, the Rolling Stones, and Pink Floyd is harnessing the popularity of “Downton Abbey” to release a new wine that evokes the clarets that were imported to Britain from France and were at the height of popularity during the 1900s.

Wines That Rock has teamed up with Dulong Grands Vins de Bordeaux to produce the new range of Bordeaux Clarets and Bordeaux Blancs, which will be sold as single bottles and gift sets.
