London: Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt is currently spending time learning about farming. The `Moneyball` star bought French winery Miraval in 2012 and the 50-year-old actor said he loves learning more about the vineyard and the winemaking process as he finds it relaxing, reportedly.

"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...

"I enjoy cleaning the forest and walking the land. (It is) the antithesis of the drive, the want, the need to get ahead indicative of life in Hollywood," he said.

Pitt and his fiancee paid a huge amount for the winery and have seen production grow from 5,800 cases in 2011 to 16,000 now.

"The business model didn`t make sense to me... Let`s approach it like a film... Let`s make something we can be proud of and all people can enjoy."
