Wine Notes

By: Cresta

Celeb Wines

Stop the presses! Brad and Angelina are releasing their very own vino. No doubt they can as they own a 1,000-acre estate in Southwestern France. Plus they’re rich and famous.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt will release a 2012 vintage pink rosé, Miraval, sometime in mid-March – the grapes harvested from their vineyards in France. The wine, named after Pitt and Jolie’s Chateau, is a result of a partnership with French winegrower Marc Perrin.

Plans are already underway to release white wines this summer. Will you try the power couple’s new wines?

Wine-Flavored Teas

If you like tea and wine, this just may be your drink. I saw this in the March issue of InStyle Magazine – wine-flavored tea. Vintage TeaWorks makes a variety of loose teas in celebration of several wine flavors, including:

  • White Tea Riesling
  • Oolong Chardonnay
  • Green Tea Sauvignon
  • Rooibos Noir
  • Black Tea Merlot
  • Pu-erh Cabernet

Each canister makes about 30 to 35 cups and price range is $15.99-$18.99. www.vintageteaworks.com.
