Hollywood power-couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have today released the first bottles of their wine collaboration, according to wine website decanter.com.
 
Brangelina are helping to produce a rose wine called Miraval from their chateau in the Provence region of southern France.
 
A 'Cote de Provence' wine - a protected wine region - the couple have been working with French winemaker Marc Perrin using grapes harvested last year.

The couple have 6,000 bottles available to buy now, with a white wine to follow by the end of this summer.

They're not the only celebrities to dabble in the alcohol industry - movie director Francis Ford Coppola owns Rubicon Estate, a well-regarded winery in Calfiornia's Napa Valley. Meanwhile Jurassic Park actor Sam Neill owns a winery in Central Otago, New Zealand. Ex-ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd sells Crystal Head Vodka - bottled in a clear glass bottle shaped like a skull. Goth rocker Marilyn Manson makes his own style of absinthe, called Mansinthe.

The Miraval vineyards are within the property of the 17th-century Chateau Miraval, a $60 million estate in the village of Correns, southern France.
