Brad Pitt Takes Angelina Jolie To Court After Actress Sells Her Share Of Their French Winery Without His Consent

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Chateau Miraval is making headlines again. This after Jolie decided to sell her 50% stake in the French Winery to Russian oligarch Yuri Shefler without Pitt’s consent.

Brad Pitt and Angeline Jolie brought the Chateau Miraval winery in 2008 for an amount of $28.3 million. Pitt had invested a significant amount of time and money into making the vineyard successful. The actor had a vision to turn the vineyard into a company for their kids.

Chateau Miraval is a villa located in Correns, France. The 1,200-acre property has multiple 17th-century buildings and is situated along a well-known Roman road. In addition to the vineyard, Chateau Miraval has a private lake, a moat, olive groves, several fountains, pine woods, expansive slopes, and a Romanesque chapel. The land was first utilized as a winery in the 1850s. Late in the 1970s, Jacques Loussier bought the site and kept making wine there.

Chateau Miraval’s main residence has 35 rooms. With that, the home has a theatre, a dirt bike course, a gym, a video game room, indoor and outdoor pools, a helicopter pad, and a spa. The 47-year-old actress in 2010, moved a 200-year-old olive tree to the chateau’s grounds.

In February 2022, Brad Pitt sued Angelina Jolie, alleging that she had improperly sold her interests in Miraval, a French corporation that owned a castle and vineyard.

In March 2013, the star couple started selling their own rosé, and in August 2014, they wed there. The 57-year-old actor claimed that when Jolie requested a divorce in 2016, they both made a pact not to sell their Miraval stock without consent. 

However, the Tenute del Mondo wine section of the Stoli group, run by Russian entrepreneur Yuri Shefler, purchased the Girl Interrupted actor’s share in the award-winning winery in 2021. Following this, the Fight Club actor sued his ex-wife.
