Angelina Jolie and Bratt Pitt are getting into the wine business. They have teamed with the Perrins of Beaucastel to produce wine at their Provence estate.
In the partnership, the making and distribution of the Hollywood couple’s Chateau Miraval will be handled by the Perrin family, a famous wine-making clan. Jolie and Pitt initiated rented their winery estate to live on, but later decided to purchase the property and take over the wine business. The Miraval rosés are reportedly scheduled to hit the market in March 2013. The white wines should at the end of the summer.
‘They (the Jolie-Pitts) want to ensure they are making the best Provence wines they can,” said a member of the Perrin family. “They were present at the blending sessions this year, and are looking at everything from the installations in the… to reworking the labels across the range of wines.”
Quite an impressive way to diversify their brand. What better way to sip your way into romance and possibly expand your family than by drinking a rosé from a family who’s all about a growing brood?
