Were you hoping to get a bottle of the wine that Brad Pitt grew and bottled for his life partner Angelina Jolie? Were you hoping that you might consume it, and upon doing so, achieve some of the power couple’s stunning good looks or feel, for a moment, like one of the guests at their upcoming wedding?
Well, too bad. It’s all gone.
In an online sale, all 6,000 bottles of Miraval Cotes de Provence, the blend developed in a collaboration between the Jolie-Pitts and the Perrin winemaking family, sold out in five hours, according to a PR firm representing Miraval. “Selling started at 9 a.m. and everything was sold by 2 p.m.,” they told the New Zealand Herald.
If your need to emulate these Hollywood oenophiles is so strong that you must drink the Jolie-Pitt wine, don’t despair: An additional 100,000 bottles have been sold to restaurants and wine merchants. So go ahead and stalk them. And as for the price point, a six-bottle case would’ve run you a cool 105 euros (137 USD) — a lot less than a baby recruiting trip to Mali.
