Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have ventured into the wine business. The couple helped produce Miraval wines from their French estate.
Wine website Decanter.com reports that the super star couple has been working with French winemaker Marc Perrin since the 2012 harvest and is ready to bring the Miraval wine on the market in March, while white wines are set to arrive at the end of this summer.
Perrin told Decanted.com Wednesday: “They … want to ensure they are making the best Provence wines they can. They were present at the blending sessions this year, and are relooking at everything from the installations in the winery – where we have already switched to stainless steel tanks – to reworking the labels across the range of wines.”
Pitt and Jolie bought the Chateau Miraval in Correns, southern France 4 years ago and took advantage of the 140+ acres of vines. The Miraval wine was formally known Pink Floyd because the band recorded their 1979 album “The Wall” at the estate’s studio. Now, the new productions will carry the names Jolie-Pitt and Perrin at the back label.
