Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have produced a new wine called Miraval that is now available to the superyachts that travel down the French Riviera. The wine can be purchased across from the old Port of Cannes at the 1862 Wines & Spirits shop which is a top stop for superyachts traveling down the Riviera. Miraval is a rose wine that was created at the estate Chateau Miraval owned by the duo in France. It is the second wine produced by the legendary 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.”
The new vintage 2013 wine has now been on sale for a few weeks in the 1862 Wines and Spirits shop and is offered in both bottles and magnums for a price of €15.90 and €34.00, including VAT.
