Marriages come and go, but wine endures. That’s one lesson we can learn from the now-separated couple formerly known as Brangelina.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are reportedly still quietly working out the details of the divorce Jolie filed for back in September 2016, but one thing that they’ll continue to share, in addition to six kids, is the line of estate wines they launched together in 2013. They’re also apparently planning to hang onto the vineyard in France from which the wines originate, where they summered in happier (or perhaps less happy) days and they celebrated their wedding in 2014.

Miraval wines, which is overseen by Marc Perrin of the well-regarded French winemaking family Famille Perrin, is set to release its latest bottling of its pink rosé with no change on the wording on the label: “bottled by Jolie-Pitt and Perrin.”

In regard to the wine and estate, which some had speculated they might sell, “nothing has changed,” a source has told People, adding that the erstwhile couple will retain the lush property in a wine-growing region of Provence “as an investment for their children.”

The wine has been a big seller, and Perrin says the 2017 Miraval vintage is the estate’s best ever. “With magnificent aromas of fragrant white blossom and fruit, the wine retains that touch of distinctive minerality drawn from the limestone soils, that is the hallmark of the greatest French terroirs,” he told People. “But what makes this 2017 vintage really stand out is its silky texture which adds a very special dimension to the wine.”

Lesson 2: A soured relationship need not spoil a perfectly good wine.
