Do Angelina Jolie’s good deeds ever end?
The actress can now add another accomplishment to her Wikipedia page as the rosé wine she produces with her husband Brad Pitt arrived on British supermarket shelves this week. Okay, it’s no UN Goodwill Ambassador, but we can attest that rosé has brought happiness to many a Saturday evening in.
Marks and Spencer are selling the wine in question, a 2014 bottle called Miraval Rosé, named after the Chateau Miraval the couple own in France’s Provence region, and where the wine is made. (That’s also the same Chateau Miraval where they married.)
Isn’t it great that Brad and Angelina make rosé?
However, the super famous couple aren’t that involved with the production of the wine. That task is mostly outsourced to the Perrin family who live nearby and are a renowned name in the Rhone Valley region, according to Decanter, a wine publication. The Perrins harvest the wine and the Jolie-Pitts invest in the property to make sure the soil is delivering the best grape possible.
Brad and Angelina can’t be accused of absenteeism though. Perrin told Decanter that the couple have been known to attend ‘blending sessions’ and help with design ideas. Sadly, it seems this famous rosé is only available in UK stores. If it arrives in Ireland, we’ll be the first to let you know!
