Fit for a Countess: New Downton Abbey Wines Inspired by Lady Cora
Nick Briggs/Carnival Films; Robert M. Bruno Sr.
The return of Downton Abbey means more Crawley family drama, more costumes to drool over and more character-themed wine, of course.
The Countess of Grantham Collection features a Chardonnay and a Cabernet Sauvignon both crafted with California grapes. The pair joins the existing collection of Downtown Abbey Wines — a Bordeaux “Blanc” white wine and a “Claret” red wine.
You can find the wines for $15 a bottle at select grocery stores and wine retailers throughout the U.S.
What’s in store for future vintages? Something that highlights the Dowager Countess’s dry wit, we hope.
