Brad Pitt has filed a lawsuit against his ex-wife Angelina Jolie over the sale of her shares of Château Miraval, the southern French wine estate known for its rosé.

In Strasbourg, France, wine dodged a bullet when members of the European Parliament opted not to adopt proposals that would have required new warnings for alcohol and treated it like tobacco.

And Anthony Barton, the charismatic owner of second-growth Château Léoville Barton and third-growth Château Langoa Barton, has died at the age of 91. Get the details on the wine world’s latest news.
