I've heard a little about celebrity wines - those who are wealthy enough to invest in their own vineyards and wineries. However, I never gave them much thought until I read Mike Veseth's, Extreme Wines, a book that "seeks out the most outrageous wine people and places." There was no mention of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's Miraval wine from Provence, but it's one of the few celebrity wines I've seen in Tokyo. I decided to picked myself up a bottle and try it out. I was a little worried about the price since I had seen the average price as ¥7,000 on the Vivino wine app, but I was able to get for the bargain price of ¥3,000 - a ¥2,500 to ¥3,000 price tag gets you a decent bottle of wine in Tokyo. I absolutely loved it, especially since it's been scorchingly hot and humid all week!
