Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt decided to put out their own wine earlier this month and it was apparently a pretty shrewd business choice, as it’s all sold out already pretty much everywhere in the first 24 hours. Note to buyers: this shit is not polyjuice potion. You will not suddenly look like Brad or Angie by drinking their shitty alcohol. At $139 for a case, it needs to have magical properties because I’m a cheapskate.
From Yahoo News:
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s first wine has gone down a storm with buyers.
The Hollywood couple have unveiled their Miraval Rose 2012, which was produced at their southern French estate of Chateau Miraval.
It’s the first Miraval vintage stamped by Brangelina, in a joint venture with established vintner Marc Perrin. The back label reads “bottled by Jolie-Pitt and Perrin”.
A Perrin family spokesman said the first 6,000 bottles put on sale online on Thursday were bought within five hours. The wine sold for 105 euro (£91, $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.
I don’t know, I kind of don’t get the draw. I suppose Brangelina fans are going to grab it up, but do Brangelina actually have 6,000 fans? (Well, 1,000, since that’s how many cases there were.) I guess I’d try it for a laugh – so long as it was free.
