Power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are expanding their empire by dabbling in the wine business. According to PEOPLE, The Jolie-Pitt’s are in the midst of launching an organic wine line for this year.

The first wine will be called Miraval, named after their 1,000-acre vineyard estate in Southwestern France that’s located in a wine-growing valley. Organic farming is popular on the land, especially with 75 plus acres growing Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

The debut wine is said to be a 2012 vintage pink rosé that comes in an elegant bottle.

Later this year, additional organic white and reds will be released with help from French winegrower Marc Perrin.

“They [Jolie-Pitt's] are very demanding in seeking excellence in the quality and character of their wine,” Perrin told French business magazine Challenges.

The three first met last summer on the estate, where they talked about putting their product into distribution, and the design.

The wine is set to be released in the U.S. on March 15. Look for the label, which will read “Bottled by Jolie-Pitt and Perrin.”
