Under new management

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are the new owners of a French vineyard that supplied ancient Rome.

Château Val-joanis is located near the old Via Domitia, and the remains of the Roman villa are supposedly visible on "the lower part" of the property. I'm not sure whether that means "topographically lower" or "south."

Here's the modern winery on Google Maps. I can't see anything that's obviously the villa site, but the image resolution varies over the area. Maybe a more discerning eye can spot it.
