The marriage between actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may not have aged like a fine wine, but that doesn’t mean their winemaking estate can't.
According to Fox News, the two actors will not be selling their French estate and its winemaking operations will continue operating as per usual.
Marc Perrin, who collaborates with the actors to produce Miraval wine, recently shot down rumours that the couple's estate was up for sale now that they have split.
Perrin told Fox News in an interview, “The rumours about the sale are false.” The winemaker went on to explain that the parents of six are keeping the property for the kids' sake. “It is an investment for the family and the children," he said. "They are involved in all aspects of running the estate."
Brangelina purchased the 1235-acre Miraval, situated in Provence, in 2011 for $60 million. The first 6,000 bottles of Miraval Rosé they produced sold out in just five hours when they first hit the shelves in 2012. The estate also produces two varieties of white wine and organic olive oil.
Despite the celebrity couple's split, which was announced in September last year, work at the winemaking estate has continued without interruption.
“We have long-term projects and we’ve just released the latest vintage of Miraval Rosé with "bottled by Pitt, Jolie and Perrin" on the label,’” Perrin said.
