Vin Du Brangelina? Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie’s New Wine Goes On Sale Online07 March 2013
Hollywood couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Joliehave launched their pink wine online.
Brangelina are branching out, away from acting and into the business of wine making. The first few bottles of their swanky-looking rosé went on sale today online. Named the Miravel rosé, the tasty vino is on sale on the Famille Perrin website, at 105 Euros per half case, with free delivery to addresses in France.
Hollywood’s super-famous acting couple went into business with Marc Perrin, the owner of Château de Beaucastel in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and are working with him to sell the new wine from their 500 hectare estate, Château Miraval, in the Côteaux Varois in Provence, according to thedrinksbusiness.com. The wine itself is a blend of organic grapes: Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. The label bears the slogan “Bottled by Jolie-Pitt et Perrin.” We’re doubtful that the celebrity couple actually bottled the wine themselves but it certainly gives the right impression.
You’d think that a Hollywood endorsement might be a deterrent for some wine critics, but Thierry Desseauve has described the wine as having “energy and dynamism, with persistence and freshness,” thank to its “expressive fruit. A total of 100,000 bottles of the distinctive wine have been produced for sale. The producers already have celebrity connections in their heritage. Pink Floyd recorded their album The Wall at the château and as a result, they sell another wine named the Pink Floyd. The estate is also home to Studio Miraval, where The Cranberries recorded.
