A single cask of organic white wine from the French vineyard owned by Hollywood power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie fetched more than €10,000 at auction on Wednesday, organisers said.

The signed 228-litre barrel from the Chateau Miraval estate’s vineyards sold for €10 100, which will go towards a sustainable village project eastern Democratic Republic of Congo’s Kivu region.

The barrel was among 27 lots on sale by the winegrowers of the Correns commune in southern France to raise money for the charity, with others going for more modest prices including a magnum of white wine for €170.
