Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie's First Batch Of Wine Sells In Five Hours

A few weeks ago, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt officially announced they were getting into the wine business, with the help of the Perrin family, a French family known for wine. The rose wine, known as Miraval, went on sale this morning at 9 a.m. and had already sold out by 2 p.m.

This would be an impressive feat for some newbies in the wine business even if the couple had only produced a few hundred bottles. However, according to Wine-Searcher, Mirival’s first batch included 6,000 bottles of the stuff. To further prove the wine’s popularity, the French vineyard’s website is no longer even taking pre-orders for the 2012 batch. I guess being a celebrity really does go a long way.

There are several reasons besides celebrity that the wine may have sold out, though. The first is that the bottle for the wine is simply extraordinary. If I had seen it on a shelf, I probably would have picked it out, too. That’s not even a joke, since the wine costs a reasonable 105 euros (or $138) for a case of six bottles on the Internet. Adding the celebrity names to the bottle just makes things a little more interesting and obviously I’m not the only person to believe this.

If you would still like to try Pitt and Jolie’s first wine endeavor, you are not out of luck, yet. Roughly 100,000 bottles have been made available to wine sellers and restaurants alike. So, if you get the chance, you can give it a shot, or wait around for some of the different types of wine the power couple are expected to produce in the coming years.
