Brangelina are also divorcing their French wine business

Celebrity divorces are just like any other: children must be cared for, finances sorted, and the fate of your $60 million French vineyard determined. As Brangelina continues to bifurcate, Us Weekly reports that the couple otherwise known as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have decided to sell Château Miraval, the 1,200-acre property in Correns, France, which served as both the site of their 2014 wedding and the home base for their signature wine.

Known as Château Miraval, the couple’s vino was met with mixed reviews. Its rosé was the only of its kind on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of 2013 list, but their Clara Lua white blend was described by sommelier Michael Madrigale as reeking of “butt gas.” Somewhere, a tear falls on Pitt’s grape-stained bare feet.


Château Miraval will continue to produce wine, however, as the 2016 harvest has already begun under seasoned vintner Marc Perrin, who operated the winery alongside Pitt and Jolie. Future bottles won’t bear the “Jolie-Pitt” inscription on the label, though ones that do are already hovering around the $1,000 Buy-It-Now range on eBay.

Château Miraval was purchased by Brangelina in 2012, and the sprawling property surrounding its 35-room mansion is accented by olive groves, terraced hillsides, vineyards, a private lake, and a moat we assume sparkles like a fine champagne. “We’ll always have Miraval,” Pitt will no doubt whisper as violins kick in and the camera zooms out on the couple’s parting embrace. Well, had.
