Pitt Accuses Angelina Jolie of Purposely Harming Reputation of Wine Company He ‘Carefully Built’

Brad Pitt is accusing ex Angelina Jolie of damaging the reputation of the wine business they previously co-owned together by selling her half to a “stranger.”

Back in 2008, the now-exes, who share six kids, bought a controlling stake in the South of France vineyard and home Château Miraval, where they later got married in 2014 and spent several family holidays together throughout their relationship.

Pitt Previews His New Limited Release Rosé Champagne

There’s a reason to celebrate at Miraval this week!

The French chateau, whose owners Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have produced award-winning rosés since 2012, has finally unveiled its next release — and PEOPLE has all the exclusive details and photos.

First announced in January, the limited release rosé Champagne, called Fleur de Miraval, will debut in U.S. markets on Oct. 15.

“For me,” Pitt explains to PEOPLE, “Champagne conjures up feelings of celebration, quality, prestige, and luxury. But rosé Champagne is still relatively unknown.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Château Miraval to Premiere Rosé Champagne

The Provence pink powerhouse is teaming with one of the top grower Champagne producers. Plus, behind the scenes of the new Piper-Heidsieck Prohibition-themed Oscars bottle

When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie separated nearly four years ago, rosé observers wondered what would become of their Côtes de Provence estate, Château Miraval. At very least, it would likely be stuck in custody limbo while terms of the divorce dragged on, wrote the skeptics.

Instead, things have been busier than ever, with the co-owning Perrin family of the Rhône’s Château de Beaucastel propping up Miraval through the difficult split of its other parents. Last year, we reported that Miraval had unveiled a shiny new top-of-the-line cellar and released a new (record-breaking) prestige rosé cuvée, Muse de Miraval, from the vineyard’s best and oldest parcels. Now, winemaker Marc Perrin tells us a Miraval Champagne is next.

“We are working very hard on that right now with Rodolphe Péters, from Pierre Péters,” Perrin told us. One of Champagne’s hottest grower-producers, Péters has made a splash with his unusual rosé-making technique, blending a saignée of Pinot Meunier with Chardonnay—though no word yet on the style of the Miraval Champagne. “We will create the only Champagne house which only makes rosé,” said Perrin. “We are going to try to push the quality of rosé as far as possible in Champagne.” We’re feeling confident Miraval’s new marriage of talents can make it work.
