BRAD Pitt and Angelina Jolie joined forces with the Perrin family, wine makers and owners of Chateau Beaucastel in France's Chateauneuf-du-Pape region, to create a range of wines at their estate Chateau Miraval, and 6,000 bottles of Miraval Rose 2012 completely sold out after going on sale on Thursday (07.03.13).

A representative told E! News: "The sale started at 9 am, and all the bottles were sold out by 2 pm."

While the Perrin family have taken most of the responsibility for the wine production, Brad and Angelina consulted on the new bottle and redesign, which carries the names 'Jolie-Pitt and Perrin'.

Brad said: "We are intimately involved and quite enthused over the wine project with our friends the Perrin family."

Marc Perrin added: "We talked a lot and did the first harvest together. They are very demanding in seeking excellence in the quality and character of their wine."

This is not Brad and Angelina's first foray into wine production as it was previously revealed Brad wants to serve their own product Pink Floyd, at their upcoming wedding.

A source said: "Guests shouldn't be disappointed in his taste.

"He's always had a keen interest in wine and after doing his wine steward's course earlier this year, he's pretty much a certified expert.

"Brad's cellar boasts some incredibly rare wines and rivals those of some of the best connoisseurs in Europe."
