Brangeloonies love some rosé: the Jolie-Pitt wine sells out within 5 hours!

Did you know that Angelina Jolie is a big wine drinker? In her 20s, I don’t think she was much of a drinker at all, but since she got with Brad and since she’s become a mom to SIX children, Angie loves her wine. I’ve also heard that she loves to sip some vodka drinks when she’s chilling out too, but mostly I hear about the wine. As for Brad… I still think he’s more of a pot-smoker than a wine-drinker, but maybe he partakes in both in equal measure. Anyway, Brad and Angelina released their very first “Jolie-Pitt/Chateal Miraval” wine label. The announcement – that the wine would go on sale – came weeks ago, and the wine actually went on sale yesterday. And guess what? Brangeloonies LOVE some wine. The label sold out within hours.

Nine little letters on the back of the bottle set this rose wine apart from other fruits of the Provence grape harvest: Jolie-Pitt.

The Miraval Rose 2012 was produced at the southern French estate of Chateau Miraval – none other than the property of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

It’s the first Miraval vintage stamped by the Hollywood couple, in a joint venture with established vintner Marc Perrin. The back label even reads “bottled by Jolie-Pitt and Perrin.”

The Perrin family spokesman says the first 6,000 bottles put on sale online Thursday were bought within five hours. The wine sold for $139 for a six-bottle case.

The wine, in a bottom-heavy, champagne-like bottle, goes on sale to restaurants and wholesalers later this month.

There was no immediate comment from Pitt or Jolie’s publicists.

Call me crazy, but I think this is a cool little side-project for Brad and Angelina. Obviously, this isn’t some major career move or anything (“I’m quitting Hollywood to become a winemaker!”), but it’s a sweet addendum to their growing brand and their array of side projects. And who doesn’t love a good rosé? I like a good rosé more than I like a good Chardonnay. And maybe I’m the only person around here who can’t drink Merlot or Cab Sauv without getting a terrible headache.

    That last pic of Brad just killed any last trace of Thelma and Louise fueled lust.

  2. marie says:

    I go through phases with wine, sometimes it seems I can’t get enough but other times I can go months without it. I’m more of a smoker like Brad.

  3. Elo says:

    I too suffer from headaches with red wine..sigh I wish I was more cultured

  4. bohemia says:

    I love rose wine! Then again i especially like the reds… especially love merlot

  5. T.C. says:

    Selling wine on the side is better than those LOL Channel commercials so go for it Jolie-Pitt. Got 6 different trust funds to make money for.

  6. LadyMTL says:

    I’m not much of a drinker and wine gives me headaches most of the time, but hey, if Brange want to sell the stuff, why not? It’s better than having yet another celebrity “clothing line” or perfume clogging up the stores.

  7. GoodCapon says:

    It does sound like a nice little side project. Good for them!

  8. lisa2 says:

    Since the wine was only sold in France highly doubt it was the fans.

    good for them.

    • MAEVE says:

      Brad & Angelina have fans on every continent ….. in droves! But …….. I imagine the wine was bought up by speculators actually.

      • mollination says:

        That’s what I was thinking too. At a little over $20/bottle, it’s not expensively priced, so it’s not like the Olsen twins’ clothing line (read: selling stuff that can look/taste like utter crap at a crazy rate just because people will buy it for the name). I imagine it’s not fans buying it by the case so much as it’s distributors, sommeliers(sp), speculators and the like buying it to see if it’s worth the fan-fare or worth buying for their establishment.

  9. watchingyoubitch says:

    The brangeloonie in me will totally make me buy this ,shame it sold out yesterday maybe in a few weeks.

  10. floretta50 says:

    Ah. Oh I bet Jennifer Aniston is kicking herself for desroying the vineyard that was on her property before renovations. Now how is she going to compete with this.

  11. Emma - the JP Lover says:

    LOL!! Well, now I know why Jennifer Aniston has been featured in the media so much since the Oscars and why Chelsea Handler is on the ‘Jolie’ attack again. :)

    • MAEVE says:

      So true!!!!

      And those innocent lambs don’t think Jen is behind Chelsea Handler’s vile attacks. LMFAO!!!

      I wonder what’s next … a report on Jen’s caterer? Her toenail art for the BIG day? How she reached out to her Mum?
      Sooooooooooooooooooo private.
      LOL!!

    Don’t care much for Rose’ due to the sweetness factor but I love a good Chardonnay and/or Cab. I read that they will be releasing the white & red wines at a later date. Would love to try this & I absolutely love the design of the bottle.

    • j.eyre says:

      I was a non-pink wine drinker because I do not care much for sweet wines as well but they are coming out with some really nice options now. They have a few effervescent pinks that are wonderful for a summer barbeque. And many have been “plumped up” like the chardonnays of the 90s. You may want to give it another try if it has been a while. No promises but I have been won over by a couple.

      (My go-to wines are zinfandels, cabs and petite sirahs)

      • spinner says:

        Thank you so much for the tip. I will have to revisit. My Grandfather had a vineyard & made some incredible wine. He always taught me that Rose’ & White Zinfandel were not considered authentic wines according to the Master that he received guidance from. My Grandfather was a native Austrian, so perhaps his sentiment was based on local premise.

      • j.eyre says:

        No, I was firmly in your grandfather’s camp re: White Zin and Rose (remember Blushes???) And they really were sweet and underdeveloped. Which is why I was so impressed with some of what they are doing now.

        V. Sattui makes a nice one (effervescent) and paired with Waldorf Salad is lovely but I don’t think you can get it outside the winery.

      • spinner says:

        Oh j.eyre…the V. Sattui paired with a Waldorf Salad sounds lovely.

  13. Mandy says:

    I didn’t know about this! I wish I could have bought some, I do love me some rosé!!!

  14. KellyinSeattle says:

    Cheers!! Pour me a drink…..a toast to my fellow celebitchmates!

  15. lisa2 says:

    I don’t drink.. but I guess I can or will buy a bottle as a gift or a something to celebrate my looniedom.. LOL.

    I love how they were able to do this without a lot of promoting or interviews or People covers. The interest is obviously there. And it got good reviews.

    It is nice that they honored the property and continued with the wine making. Some people would not have done that. It show a lot of respect for the history of the place and the region. Their estate is simply breathtaking. Every time I see pics I wish I had that kind of money to buy a place like that.

  16. Mira says:

    Can’t drink red wine. It’s always sweet white wine for me.

  17. Toot says:

    They really got you fired up didn’t they? LOL

    The property was always a vineyard and they decided to produce their own variety so it was nice to continue the legacy. It’s not their full time job, so it’s a side project and it’s interesting, which to me classifies as “cool little side project”. ;)

  18. Hipocricy says:

    This is a tradition many french actors and singers have. From Gérard Depardieu to Carole Bouquet.

    As a side note, my parents have a property in Algarve, southern Portugal. The former owner inherited dozens of lands from his father, some of them full of raisin seeds and they still do their own wine. One of the property touches our and is just full of vinyards (we have many in our own too but we have mainly olive trees and palm tree and use it to do our own organic olive oil).

    I personally don’t see the problems in exploiting your own property’s products. After all it’s like using your own fruit trees to do some organic jam and sell it.

    Rosé is my favourite wine too.

    Congratulations to Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt for a successful endeavor, their wine being sold out just for 5 hours. That’s the power of Hollywood Royalty.

    CH & Jennifer can’t bring down this couple.

    Also, It’s not surprising that Angie is honored left & right in the celebration of International Women’s Day such as:

    “5 Hudson Valley females to honor”

    “5 Stars Who Inspire Us (Eonline.com)”

    Despite CH bashing AJ, a lot of people are inspired by her. Meaning, there are more people who believe in her & like what she does.

    I wonder CH & Jen are NEVER mentioned by credible people who give honor to personalities who make a difference!

  20. Jan says:

    Its a very wise and environmentally sound investment. Its not like she is pimping perFUME in tap water in a plastic bottle to pollute our waterways, lakes and landscapes. Now THAT is TRULY self-indulgent and stupid, as well as environmentally criminal. You Anistonloons need help. You are delusional and very unstable.

  21. Karma Karla says:

    You can always tell who the loons are, they bring up Jennifer Aniston on every Angelina thread.
