Above all, Miraval is the story of two families coming together: the Perrins and the Pitts. The first one hails from glamorous Hollywood, the second one is straight from the Provence vineyards. The Perrins were already pretty famous for their Beaucastel estate but, since 2011, they’ve also accepted to manage the Château Miraval as well (which was bought by the former Jolie-Pitt couple in 2008).
The Perrin family has always been a precursor when it comes to respectful agricultural practices: they’ve completely switched to organic wine making during the 1950s. And if you think buying the 30 hectares vineyard is just “another famous Hollywood couple planning some kind of marketing stunt”, think again! From the very beginning, the Jolie-Pitt family has been very invested in the whole process, checking on the production every month.
The Miraval, the celebrity rosé that became the "World’s Best Rosé" in 2013 according to Wine Spectator, is a delicate organic wine, deeply aromatic and elegant. But it was just a stepping stone for the Pitt-Perrin dream team. With the help of Rodolphe Peters (from the renown champagne house Pierre Peters), they’ve launched their new champagne rosé in October 2020: the Fleur de Miraval.
