For any student of wine history, the famous Château Miraval vineyard — located in the southern region of France — has long been renowned for far more than merely producing highly rated wines.
Château Miraval is home to one of the most iconic recording studios in music history, and it is currently owned by one of the most famed celebrity couples of all time—Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
Not many wineries can lay claim to that kind of pop culture prowess.
The French estate was purchased by Pitt and Jolie in 2008 for nearly $70 million, and the acquisition launched the brand’s popularity into the stratosphere. In the last few years alone, the two has teamed with CEO and Winemaker Marc Perrin to land outstanding reviews from the likes of Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast and many more.
However, while celebrity status has certainly left a lasting mark on the brand, the wine itself is deeply routed in a long legacy of best-in-class, innovative winemaking from the Perrin family. Their iconic vineyard, which covers more than 1,200 acres in the heart of Provence, is surrounded by ancient woods, olive trees, and copious amounts of fresh water.
Join us on a tour of what makes Château Miraval one of the finest wineries in the world.
