Brad Pitt is not only a successful Hollywood actor but also an entrepreneur in wine industry. The Hollywood hunk has been awarded for his wine-making skills in 2012 when the wine from his Miraval Estate winery in Provence of France was ranked the "best Rosé" in the world.

In a recent interview with Wine Spectator, the actor revealed how he first learned the process of not only wine making but also grape farming first. The actor not only invested $58 million dollars into the purchase of vineyards with his wife Angelina Jolie but also went into the depths of making the finest wine in the world. And the approach that the "Oceans Eleven" actor has is remarkable.

"For better or worse, given my compulsive nature, if we are going to be in the wine business, let's make the best wine we can. I asked the question, "Why can't we make world-class wine in Provence?" the actor revealed in his interview, according to celebrity blogged Perez Hilton.

Brad revealed to the magazine that he equates the wine making process to the process of making a good film. "Let's approach it like a film, and let's make something we can be proud of and people can enjoy," the actor revealed, according to Perezhilton.com.

Brad is so involved in the process of wine making that he calls himself a "farmer" with complete knowledge of "the land and which field is most suitable for which grape."

The actor also revealed that he is aware about 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."

Wine making not only gives the actor some real good money but he also revealed that he got a chance to find peace in farm life, which is way different than the fast and competitive life of Hollywood. He loves the tranquility and peace of a farm.

"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," Pitt revealed to the magazine, according to the Web site.
