Brangelina rose

It’s happening. Or continuing to happen. More celebrity wines. God save us all. But wait…what’s this? This wine won’t suck? I’m listening…

Chateau Miraval
Chateau Miraval

Yes, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have formed agreements to make wine from the grapes on their estate in Provence, Chateau Miraval. And by “agreements,” I mean that they have teamed up with the folks that make Chateau Beaucastel – an incredible wine from just north of Chateau Miraval in the Cote du Rhone (It’s a really fantastic heavy red Chateauneuf du Pape, if you ever get to try it. It’s worth the $100/bottle price. They also make a second label, lesser wine for a smaller price that’s also wonderful. I digress.). This alliance, combined with my realization that Pitt and Angelina clearly don’t need MORE attention or money made me think that this will probably indeed be some good wine. All the right factors are in place – good ground, great wine knowledge (from the Beaucastel folks), and sadly these days, lots of money to get the project going.

I hate to say it, but if the price is right, this might be a bottle worth searching out.
