Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Wine reaches French Riviera

The new Miraval wine produced by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie has recently arrived within reach of the superyachts on the French Riviera. The wine is now on sale in the 1862 Wines & Spirits shop, situated opposite the old Port of Cannes, in a prime location for superyachts on the world famous French Riviera.

The Rose wine named Miraval, which was created at Brad and Angelina's French Provencal estate Chateau Miraval, is the second wine released by the renowned Hollywood couple.

Expectations are high for the 2013 Miraval, following on from the success of the couple's first wine produced last year, with thousands of bottles of the 2012 vintage selling out within hours of its' release. When speaking to Yachting Pages, Hervé from 1862 Wines & Spirits commented, "We sold a lot of it last year and it has been very popular already again. I think we will sell even more this year because the wine is definitely better in taste."

Though it has been a very popular addition to the 1862 shop, Hervé also explained, "For the moment it hasn't been that popular amongst yacht crew, they prefer to stick to the most popular Domaine Ott or Minuty, but we are expecting the wine to grow in popularity and for it to become a top seller this year".

Chateau Miraval is not only famous for producing the wine of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, but also has links to famous rock band Pink Floyd. In an interview with Yachting Pages, Hervé continued, "I have been working with this estate (Chateau Miraval) for the past four years, since I first started here. It was already owned by Brad Pitt but he wasn't advertising on it. It is an estate with a long history: the rosé is called "Pink Floyd" because the rock band recorded their album "The Wall" at the estate in 1979. It is even written on the back of the cover."
