From where shall I get all of my celebrity signed off on rosé wine now? Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are deep in the throes of drama-free (*chuckle*) divorcing and the next piece of their previous life together to go will be their $60 million dollar estate and vineyard in Correns, France. UsWeekly is reporting that Brad and Angie have put Château Miraval up for sale. I like to drink wine. Does anyone have $60 million on them?
The couple bought Château Miraval in 2012 and they got hitched there in August of 2014. To me, that name sounds janky, and one step up from that rusty tool shed in your backyard that your shiftless uncle slept in for a week when your aunt kicked him out that time.
The 1,200-acre property boasts 35 rooms and features pine forests, olive groves, terraced hillsides, working vineyards, a private lake and, yes, even a moat.
It isn’t just the mansion that’s going. Brad and Angie splitting up will also affect their line of rosé wine, which is grape-stomped at Château Miraval. The couple that has turned the concept of “together forever” into a mocking pipe dream for all of us will be taking “Jolie-Pitt” off of the labels when the next batch of wine goes out.
In fact, UsWeekly says that these two are using “scorched earth” as their divorce mantra and planning on selling every single piece of joint property that they own. I’m guessing she’ll let Brad keep the bong he made out of Taco Bell’s Gordita Supreme wrappers.
Don’t be sad if celebrity-made wine is your thing. Anyone with an IMDB page fancies themselves a wine-maker. It sounds like it’s either make wine or compete on Dancing With The Stars. Olivia Newton-John! Jason Priestley! Lil Jon! Nancy Pelosi! Wait, what was she in?
