brad pitt be stealing some wine names

Apparently it’s wedding week on grapefriend. Not really, but it’s the second wedding-related post in a row.

Anyway, last night Brad Pitt said that his wedding to Angelina Jolie might happen soon. “The time is nigh…it’s soon,” was his exact quote to People. “I got a good feeling about it.” He also said that his kids were the ones who were really into having the wedding, which I find weird since they can’t even drink wine!

Brad has apparently hand-picked about seven different wines for the wedding, including Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne and some German wines. Someone told The Sun, “He’s always had a keen interest in wine and after doing his wine steward’s course earlier this year, he’s pretty much a certified expert.” Very grapefriendy. Before we go any further with this, let’s dial back a few months to when I was having dinner with the winemaker from Wild Horse.

pink floyd wild horse wineWild Horse makes fantastic Pinot Noir’s from Paso Robles (you gotta try the Cheval Sauvage, which means Wild Horse for all you non-French speakers). But we started talking about their sheep farm – the sheep eat the weeds around the ponds so they don’t have to use herbicides. And they also have a llama who protects the sheep from coyotes. His name is Floyd. They made a rosé in his honor and what did they call it? Pink Floyd!

I loved the name and the wine too – light because of the Pinot, super intense strawberry, and lovely. The bottle is clear so you get to see the color (and Floyd) in their full glory.

So I was so into this whole story and the name of the wine. Then I hear that Brad’s also planning on serving one of the wines he makes at his French place Miraval – and it’s called Pink Floyd! The reason behind that is because part of Pink Floyd’s album The Wall was recorded on the Miraval estate. Eh, the llama story is much more clever.
