Wine website Decanter.com reported that Hollywood A-List couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have gone into wine business, producing a rose called Miraval from their French estate and putting their names on the label.
The celebrity couple have been working with winemaker Marc Perrin starting with the 2012 harvest, the website said. The wines will be in the market in March and white wines will will be arriving at the end of the summer.
According to Decanter.com the Miraval wine was formerly called Pink Floyd because the British rock band recorded their 1979 album "The Wall" in a studio on the estate. The back label of the wine carries the names Jollie-Pitt and Perrin."They ... want to ensure they are making the best Provence wines they can," Perrin told Britain-based Decanter.com. on Wednesday. "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," he added.
Pitt and Jolie began renting Chateau Miraval in the village of Correns, southern France, about four years ago and later bought the property, which has about 148 acres (60 hectares) of vines, for $60 million.

Pitt last year unveiled a high-end collection of furniture that he helped create with designer Frank Pollaro. He has also worked with architects to create affordable quality housing for victims of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.
