Jolie's bold decision comes just one month after Pitt claimed she was trying to cheat him out of the deal.

In turn, he sued his ex-wife. They were equal shareholders of the winery, and Pitt alleged she was trying to bypass his right of first refusal.

Pitt claimed Jolie was attempting to profit off the "incredible amount of work, time and money" he and his business partners put in to grow the recognizable brand.

At the time, a source told Daily Mail, "Angelina's actions towards Brad are consistently vindictive," adding, "it's another example of this person trying to circumvent the rules and avoid their obligations."

Not only is Château Miraval the exes' one-time venture together, but it's also where they tied the knot.

Jolie and Pitt have been going head-to-head over the winery since July when the actress asked a judge to lift a restraining order on the transfer of their assets so she can offload her shares to a potential buyer.

According to Jolie, she did offer to sell her portion of the property and company to Pitt.
