Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are launching their own wine label.
The couple have joined forces with the Perrin family, wine makers and owners of Chateau Beaucastel in France’s Chateauneuf-du-Pape region, to create a range of wines at their estate Chateau Miraval, with the first beverage set to be a 2012 vintage pink rose.
Brad said: “We are intimately involved and quite enthused over the wine project with our friends the Perrin family.”
While the Perrin family will take most of the responsibility for the wine production, Brad and Angelina consulted on the new bottle and redesign, which will carry the names ‘Jolie-Pitt and Perrin’. Marc Perrin told business magazine Challenges: “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.”
This is not Brad and Angelina’s first foray into wine production as it was previously revealed Brad wants to serve their own product Pink Floyd, at their upcoming wedding. A source said: “Guests shouldn’t be disappointed in his taste. He’s always had a keen interest in wine and after doing his wine steward’s course earlier this year, he’s pretty much a certified expert. Pink Floyd is one of their own wines from their Miraval estate. Brad’s cellar boasts some incredibly rare wines and rivals those of some of the best connoisseurs in Europe.”
