Where to Buy Wine Made at Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie's French Chateau
Hollywood celebs love making wine these days. (Well, not really making wine; slapping their names on labels is more like it.) But all kidding set aside, these labels have a big draw, especially here in L.A. In fact, Brangelina's first batch of Miraval Rose produced at their chateau in the South of France sold out within five hours of going on sale online last week.
But devotees of the power couple needn't fear, because Wally's Wine & Spirits in West Los Angeles is now taking pre-orders for a shipment due in May.
Up to six bottles, at $24.99 each, can be ordered from the store -- thanks to what Wally's calls its "special relationships with the parties involved.'' (The couple have been reported to be loyal customers of Wally's.)
"Sales have been definitely brisk to say the least,'' Wally's owner, Christian Navarro, said to the Community News Service. Most orders have been for the six-bottle limit, and several customers have asked for more, he said.
Five hundred bottles have been sold today alone. Navarro attributes that to the fact that it's actually decent wine that just so happens to have celebrity appeal. It was made with the help of one of France's most respected vinters, Marc Perrin.
Navarro waxed poetic about the wild strawberry notes, complex citrus flavors and refreshing acidity.
We've sure it pairs great it with the couple's cricket snacks.
