Emilio Estevez Has A Micro-Farm/Winery In Malibu

Former “Brat Pack” and “Breakfast Club” alum Emilio Estevez has discovered a new passion in middle age: micro-farming. The 49-year-old actor, director, and producer (his latest film “They Way” just hit) has a home on one acre in Malibu, CA – with nearly every square-inch of dirt filled with grape vines.

“My grandfather, who was from Galicia, Spain, grew up tending a vineyard and growing potatoes and raising chickens and all of these things that are coming naturally to me now,” Estevez is quoted as saying. “I was drawn to it in an unconscious way.” Back in 2005, Emilio started tearing up his grass and planting over 800 vines; which eventually naturally spawned his own winery business called Casa Dumetz. Now, together with his fiancée Sonja Magdevski, they produce roughly 600 cases of wine annually — with most of it sold in local shops.

“I have a micro-farm and grow a lot of my own food,” he recently told The Huffington Post. “I raise chickens for eggs, and worms for soil, and have bees for honey. I have a hothouse and vineyards for making pinot noir, with our own label from Casa Dumetz and a website where you can find out what we’re doing out there. We give our food to local restaurants.”

Indeed, Estevez credits his time with nature as a way to meditate and find creativity and inspiration for other projects. “I write a lot of dialogue out there,” he told the NY Times. “I’d do a row and then back inside to write and then back outside. It was this wonderful exchange.”

You can check out a trailer for Estevez’s new film, which stars his famous dad Martin Sheen, below.
