Good news for all you wine connoisseurs out there: A collection of "Downton Abbey" wine is being released.

According to Fox News, Wines That Rock -- also responsible for Grateful Dead and Rolling Stones wines -- is releasing a collection of "vintage" wine that is "typical of the clarets and whites are the type of imported by the British aristocracy from France in the early 1900s."

"We are working with The Dulong Grands Vins De Bordeaux vineyards, which have been in the same family for five generations," Bill Zysblat, co-owner of Wines That Rock, said in a statement. "They have over 130 years of experience in creating the world's best wines so these are wines the Crawley family would have been proud to serve at Downton."

The Masterpiece series isn't just inspiring bottles of wine these days. In May, Diddy did a "Downton Abbey" Funny Or Die spoof titled "Downton Diddy" and Paul Giammati hopped on board the "Downton" train on Monday.

"We're excited that Paul Giamatti will be joining us on 'Downton' to play Cora's brother Harold, the rather free-spirited uncle to Mary and Edith," Gareth Neame, managing director of Carnival Films, said in a statement. "We can't wait to see him work alongside Shirley MacLaine, who are both sure to upset the Grantham's apple cart in this year's finale.”
