Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie can toast to their success in the wine business
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie can toast to their success in the wine business after selling 6,000 bottles of rose produced at the couple’s $60m southern French estate.
The Hollywood couple debuted the fruits of their labour online yesterday, and within five hours, all 6,000 bottles had sold out.
Brad and Angelina have teamed up with established vintner Marc Perrin to create the Miraval Rose 2012, which costs €139 for a 6-bottle case, and have been very hands on in the process.
According to Perrin, the business idea emerged over a few bottles of wine when Brad and Angelina invited him over to their 35-bedroom estate in June 2012.
‘Brad and Angelina are very friendly, nice people and down to earth,’ Perrin told Bloomberg.
The wine, in a bottom-heavy, champagne-like bottle, goes on sale to restaurants and wholesalers later this month.
