It wouldn’t be fair for Brad Pitt, American actor and film producer, to have any more beauty, brains and talents beyond what we know him for, but the Academy Award winner is now adding winemaker to his of accomplishments.
Pitt and his wife, Angelina Jolie, originally purchased the Château Miraval Côtes de Provence Rosé estate as a family vacation sanctuary, but now the couple has found success dabbling in the winemaking industry. Pitt is currently on the cover of the June issue of Wine Spectator, showing off his smoldering good looks with a wine glass in hand.
Pitt is enjoying learning the ins and outs of caring for a vineyard. He says, “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?” The vineyard itself sits on a sprawling 1,000 acres of land, and all 6,000 bottles sold out as soon as the first batch hit the stores.
The 50 year-old likened wine making to movie making, saying, “I asked the question, ‘Why can’t we make world-class wine in Provence?’ Let’s approach it like a film, and let’s make something we can be proud of and people can enjoy. We envision a superb Provence red. A super Provence. Give us seven years.”
Maybe Pitt will put out a vegan wine next?
