Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: We're making wine!
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are joining other celebrity winemakers like Fergie and Francis Ford Coppola. Their new Miraval rosé launches March 15.
Perhaps one of the most entrepreneurial couples in Hollywood, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are at it again. The couple has designed jewelry and furniture, and they've worked on architectural designs. Now, they're releasing their own wine in the United States beginning March 15.
The dynamic duo has owned a vineyard in the southwestern part of France since 2008. The first wine launched will be a 2012 vintage pink rosé and the label will bear the estate's name Miraval.
Don't worry, though — you'll know you're drinking a Brangelina wine since it will feature their names with "Bottled by Jolie-Pitt and Perrin."
The Perrin refers to Marc Perrin, their business partner in this wine-making venture. He's a French winegrower who will release a line of organic red and white wines with the couple later in 2013.
Their collaboration is a relatively new one since the couple only met Perrin last summer, but the winemaker's family is well known in the wine production and distribution business.
Perrin told Challenges, a French business magazine, "We talked a lot and did the first harvest together. They are very demanding in seeking excellence in the quality and character of their wine."
The couple, of course, had a hand in designing the bottle, which has a bell-shaped bottom featuring fluid lines and an elegant presentation.
If you're looking to visit the area, Miraval is located in the wine valley of Provence. The estate has over 75 acres of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon organic grapes where the former owner released the prize-winning rosé, Pink Floyd. For fans of the band, their legendary album The Wall was actually recorded in the studios on the grounds of the estate.
