Brad Pitt - 'Farmer' Brad Pitt
Brad Pitt enjoys learning more about the winemaking process and farming his surrounding land.
Brad Pitt loves being a ''farmer''.
The 'Moneyball' actor and his fiancee Angelina Jolie - with who he raises children Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, seven, and twins Knox and Vivienne, five - bought French winery Miraval in 2012 and the 50-year-old hunk loves learning more about the vineyard and the winemaking process as he finds it so relaxing.
He said: ''I'm a farmer now. I love learning about the land and which field is most suitable for which grape, the drama of September and October...I enjoy cleaning the forest and walking the land. [It is] the antithesis of the drive, the want, the need to get ahead indicative of life in Hollywood.''
Brad and Angelina paid $60 million for the winery and, after deciding to tackle their new business venture ''like a film'', have seen production grow from 5,800 cases in 2011 to 16,000 now.
Speaking to Wine Spectator magazine, Brad said: ''The business model didn't make sense to me...Let's approach it like a film...let's make something we can be proud of and all people can enjoy.''
