Last Sunday I blogged about food and Francine Bryson’s delicious pie recipe featuring the name of a celebrity-- (See Bobbie Deen)

Now that I’ve gained 5 lbs from eating this pie, let’s turn today to Provence, France. In particular, Chateau Miraval, and take a look at some other celebrities.




Super celebrities Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie purchased this chateau for $60 million dollars.



Chateau Miraval sits on 1200 acres, so the couple decided to start making wine.
Not alone, of course, but with the help of Marc Perrin, well-known winemaker.

The result is a pink wine which resulted in high praise,

It’s aptly named:
Château Miraval Côtes de Provence rosé.

In the words of Wine Spectator, 2013:

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have released their first wine, a 2012 rose from their Provence estate, Chateau Miraval. In a blind tasting of a flight of Provençal roses at Wine Spectator's New York office, the wine was refined and elegant, with pure flavors of dried red berry and tangerine, and a focused finish with flint and spice notes. It scored 90 points, or outstanding, on Wine Spectator's 100-point scale."



Unfortunately, this wine is sold out, but there’s always next year.

    I think that Angela Jolie is a bit of a nut myself. I carry blood in a vial around my neck too!
    And I hope those kids turn out normal. She does some nutsy things.

    Mary,
    Yes, Angelina Jolie is gorgeous, but some of her ideas and past adventures are definitely different.
