    It's going to cost you a pretty penny to get your paws on some of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's wine!

    A barrel of organic wine from their Miraval estate has just been sold for $13,800 at an auction where the proceeds go to an agricultural project in Africa.

    Michael Latz, the mayor of Correns, said that the annual sale in his village is designed to help people living in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

    "We've organized this sale in solidarity with the people of the Kivu region," he told reporters.

    The money raised is said to be donated to a project that aims to teach young people about sustainable farming.

    And Brangelina's barrel seemed to be the top seller of the event.

    The couple's wine has been a bestseller for quite some time now.

    Earlier this year, all 6,000 bottles of their Miraval Rose 2012 sold out within hours of them going on sale.

    Produced at their French estate in Correns that the couple acquired in 2008, the wine is a joint venture between the famous couple and French winemaker Marc Perrin.
