You'd think Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie would have their hands full with their six kids, filming, directing, and producing films, being charitable all over the globe, and perhaps even planning their much-anticipated wedding. But no! The Hollywood power couple somehow found the time to create their own wine, named after their estate in southwestern France, Miraval. People reports the first wine -- a 2012 vintage pink rosé -- be released to the thirsty masses beginning March 15! So soon!
While it seems somewhat out of character for these two to get into celebrity retail of any sort, maybe it's not that crazy. After all, Miraval, which they've owned since 2008, does boast vineyards on the property.
And maybe I'm just taking a wild stab in the dark that's not at all based in reality here, but I would venture to guess that anything Brangelina produces and releases to the public would be high-quality. (They're not like some stars -- cough Madonna -- who thinks they're doing something amazing, and it's really a dud to the rest of us.) I just can't see how they'd put their names on something shoddy, you know?
What their buddy, Marc Perrin, a French winegrower who is joining Brangelina in this venture, told the business magazine Challenges seems to prove that this wine is really something to look forward to. He said:
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.
Then he told Bloomberg:
If you knew Brad and Angelina, you would see they are in search of perfection in everything. They’re thinking long term.
Well, sounds awesome to me! Still, only time -- and the upcoming edition of Wine Spectator, which will review the libation -- will tell if their wine is worth checking out. But the fact that they'll be offering an organic white and organic red down the road is enough to make my taste buds perk up!
Would you try Brangelina's wine?
