Interested in sampling some of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's new organic wine? You just missed your first chance.
The couple's Miraval Rose 2012
, produced from grapes grown on their 1,000-acre, $60 million Chateau Miraval in Correns, France, sold out its initial run of 6,000 bottles in less than five hours today. According to MSN
, the wine sold online for €105 ($139) for a six-bottle case.
"They (the Jolie-Pitts) want to ensure they are making the best Provence wines they can," Perrin told Decanter last month
. "They were present at the blending sessions this year, and are relooking at everything from the installations in the winery — where we have already switched to stainless steel tanks — to reworking the labels across the range of wines."
According to a statement, organic reds and whites will be released later this year and into 2014. Miraval plans to sell additional cases of its 2012 vintage pink rosé to restaurants and wholesalers later this month.
