Château Miraval is located in the Provence village of Correns, the first 100% organic village in France. All of the crops, including grapes, are grown organically in this wild and picturesque village. The Miraval rosé is a joint venture between the Perrin family (of Maison Nicolas Perrin and Château de Beaucastel) and Hollywood actors Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who also make Miraval their summer hideaway.
Château Miraval has 50 hectares of grapes grown on the estate. The terraced vineyards are at 350 metres altitude, resulting in cool nights that moderate the warm days which in turn help the grapes retain their delicate aromas and crisp acidity. The clay and chalk soils at Miraval are also important for quality because they help regulate water supply to the vines so they have water when they need it and drainage when they don’t. At harvest, the grapes are handpicked in the coolness of the morning and hand sorted twice to ensure that only the best grapes go into making the rosé.
"Here, we are channelling the romantic allure of one of the world's most beautiful couples, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, with a wine made at their gorgeous Chateau just outside the honey coloured French city of Aix En Provance. The wine is a complex blend of 45% Cinsault, 35% Grenache and 10% of both Syrah and Rolle. It is a brilliant, muscular wine which, like any good relationship, will stand the test of time." - The Sunday Business Post, 07 January 2016
