Brad Pitt Calls Himself a Farmer, Covers 'Wine Spectator' Mag
Here is what the 50-year-old actor had to share with the mag:
On his new job in life: “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?… It’s been a schooling for me. In the off months, I enjoy cleaning the forest and walking the land.”
On his 35-bedroom estate and adjoining vineyard, Chateau Miraval: “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,”
On farming being an escape from Hollywood: “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.”
