Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt will be selling wine now, too
As if making millions in movies, selling perfume and parenting a family full of little moneymakers isn't enough, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have decided to use their French connections to sell wine here in the States. But why did they have to start with a rosé?
The couple are putting their 1,000-acre French estate to good use by bottling Miraval, which is named after the home and is hitting shelves on March 15, People says. Winemaker Marc Perrin, who met the couple through mutual friends, has been lending them a hand, and will get a credit on the bottle.
The 2012 pink rosé will soon be joined by a host of organic white and red wines later this year. As a side note, the mag says the estate's 75 acres of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were used by Miraval's previous owner to make a rosé called Pink Floyd, in honor of the British band, which recorded tracks for The Wall in studios on Miraval's grounds. And here we thought learning Angie's uncle wrote Wild Thing was the tripiest musical connection she had.
