George Lucas buys a vineyard–olives included

August 26th, 2017

“Star Wars” creator George Lucas, who has made a home in Chicago, has bought a vineyard in the South of France.

People magazine says Lucas, husband of Chicago businesswoman Mellody Hobson, purchased a historic chateau with a working vineyard in the Var in Provence for $11.2 million. The property also has olive groves and produces what’s called “estate oil,” olive oil that’s made only with olives from that estate.

The new estate is near a chateau owned by actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
