The British period drama Downton Abbey now has a wine collection featuring two blends from the Bordeaux region of France: a "Blanc" white wine and a "Claret" red wine available in the United States on November 1, 2013.
From the William Zysblat, the co-creator of the wine:
"We are excited to launch the Downton Abbey Wine Collection, made in the finest Bordeaux winemaking tradition. 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."

We think this is a brilliant product licensing. How about we take a sip every time someone says "poor Edith"?
