He’s always up to something fascinating and after winning an award for his Chateau Miraval rosé last year, Brad Pitt is all about agriculture.

In the new issue of Wine Spectator, the “Curious Case of Benjamin Button” hunk explained his new passion as owner of Chateau Miraval with partner Angelina Jolie.

"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: Are we picking today? Where are the sugar levels? How is the acidity? Is it going to rain?"

Pitt continued, "It’s been a schooling for me. In the off months, I enjoy cleaning the forest and walking the land.”

“We became impassioned with this place which could produce its own wine, its own food, and become a place where artists could congregate and share ideas. It’s very peaceful and the antithesis of the drive, the want, the need to get ahead indicative of life in Hollywood. I’m instantly reminded what quiet sounds like."

Furthermore, "What really interests me now are the reds. We envision a superb Provence red. A super Provence. Give us seven years.”
