Drunk on Success: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie To Release Vintage Wine
If you thought Brangelina weren’t busy enough, with their six kids, hectic filming schedules and numerous business ventures just hold on for their brand new wine label.
That’s right, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are going into wine-making and releasing their very first effort, a vintage pink rose wine on March 15th. The wine will be called Miraval, like Brangelina’s chateau and vineyard in France. Sounds quite fancy to us, but what do we know? Then again, what do Brad and Angie themselves know of wine-making? Well, even if the Hollywood pair’s expertise in the area is a bit questionable, they have some pretty serious names on their team. The Jolie-Pitts have joined forces with the Perrin family to create this harvest and an entire line of red and white wines in the future.
Marc Perrin, an expert French winegrower, told business magazine Challenges of the venture, "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." No one would expect any less of the power couple, of course. For an interview with Bloomberg, Perrin also commented, “If you knew Brad and Angelina, you would see they are in search of perfection in everything. They’re thinking long term.” Good to know. The pair’s first offering will be reviewed in The Wine Spectator. It hasn’t been revealed yet how much a bottle of the stuff will cost, but you can be sure it won’t be available at your local corner store.
