Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have announced that they will release a new rosé from their 1,000-acre Chateau Miraval estate next month. This will be the first bottle to come from the duo’s property with their names on it. Formally named ‘Pink Floyd’, the rosé will now simply be called ‘Miraval’.
The Hollywood power couple purchased Chateau Miraval, which is located in Correns, France, after leasing it since 2008. The new rosé is part of a joint venture with the Famille Perrin, a fifth generation winemaking family that owns Chateau Beaucastel, in the Rhone Valley, according to Bloomberg.
Pitt released a statement through his publicist and manager, Cynthia Pett, saying, “We are intimately involved and quite enthused over the wine project with our friends the Perrin family.”
The Perrin family has been producing Miraval’s wines since 2012 and is also in charge of the wine’s distribution. Profits are shared equally between Jolie/Pitt and the Perrin family, according to wine maker Marc Perrin, who told Bloomberg over the phone, “If you knew Brad and Angelina, you would see they are in search of perfection in everything.”
Jolie and Pitt were present during the rosé blending process and “helped to create a distinctive new bottle shape and black label. The label will carry the names “Jolie-Pitt and Perrin.”
There are plans for a white wine to be released at the end of the summer and reds sometime next year.
