Jolie-Pitt have gone into the wine business, and rose wines to be exact.
The Jolie-Pitt wine, The Miravel Rose 2012, hit the market and it sold out in 5 hours! A six-bottle case went for $139. They had about 6,000 bottles for sale and it’s all gone. The wine was made on Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s French estate of Chateau Miraval and in conjunction with a well-known vintner, Marc Perrin.
FORT PIERCE, FLORIDA – Monday November 8, 2010. David Cassidy, former star of the 1970s TV show The Partridge Family, was arrested on Wednesday evening after blowing .14 on the breathalyzer. The 60-year-old former teen heartthrob was caught allegedly driving recklessly by Fort Pierce, and was caught with a half-empty bottle of bourbon in his Mercedes. Police said Cassidy eventually admitted to drinking of a glass of wine at noontime, and that he also took a painkiller for his back pain. Cassidy was taken to jail for DUI and released on bail Thursday morning. The incident might affect Cassidy’s appearance in the next episode of ‘The Celebrity Apprentice.”
Longtime couple Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn were seen today at a dog park in Brentwood, CA, just next to Hollywood. Good for them staying together for so long, and, for doing a “real” people activity and not hiding like most stars of their status!
I need a drink...
South Africa’s ancient wine country is plagued by fermented grape eating baboons.
There is not much vineyard owners can do about it. The baboons swarm the grape rich land and feast on fallen, fermented grapes, many becoming so drunk, they can’t find their way home.
The beasts are indigenous to the area, however, it’s man and his lust for progress that has brought them closer to humans and their prized vino bounty. Building on the baboons land has forced the thirsty wine crazed monkeys in the area and as a result they have adopted their daily happy-hour habit.
It’s not only the vineyards that the baboons are raiding, it’s also homes. One family was traumatized after a gang of the sloshed monkeys broke in to their home and ransacked the kitchen looking for snacks.
20 “baboon monitors” have been employed to try and wrangle the baboons, however, their efforts do little to detour the problem. As a consequence, many families who have been in the same area for generations are simple giving up and moving away.
