Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's famous names can certainly move some French wine. Brangelina tossed their formidable marketing power behind a friend's wine and thousands of bottles were sold out in five hours. The couple 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. 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 »
