The first wine to be sold from a French vineyard owned by Hollywood couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will be offered today to online buyers.

PARIS – Nine little letters on the back of the bottle set this rose wine apart from other fruits of the Provence grape harvest: Jolie-Pitt.

The Miraval Rose 2012 was produced at the southern French estate of Chateau Miraval – property of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

It’s the first Miraval vintage stamped by the Hollywood couple, in a joint venture with established vintner Marc Perrin. The back label reads: “bottled by Jolie-Pitt and Perrin.”

The Perrin family spokesman says the first 6,000 bottles put on sale online Thursday were bought within five hours. The wine sold for (euro) 105 ($139) for a six-bottle case.

There was no immediate comment from publicists for Pitt and Jolie.

The wine, in a bottom-heavy, champagne-like bottle, will go on sale to restaurants and wholesalers later this month.
