When Brad shops, he really shops. There are rumors and gossip all over about Brad flying around shopping for real estate.
Apparently he is wanting to join the winemakers by buying a vineyard in Italy:
Brad, who is awaiting the birth of his first child with Angelina Jolie, has been looking at properties in Serralunga, Italy, just outside Turin. Apparently, the Ocean’s Twelve star stayed at the former royal residence Fontanafredda, while he considered two of the grand estate’s vineyards. Monica Tavella, a spokeswoman for the estate, said: “Brad’s visit was kept very secret, and only a handful of people knew that he was staying with us. “He stayed over a weekend which is usually quiet, so he was able to see the vineyard and the cellars where the wine is aged. “He was very interested in the whole process of wine-making, right from the vine to the bottle, and he was also very knowledgeable. He seemed to be interested in buying.” [source]
Also he has reportedly been to the Dominican Republic lately shopping for real estate:
Brad Pitt visited the Dominican Republic last week to scout real estate, reports The Associated Press.
The actor took a helicopter to the Samana peninsula, on the north coast, and the eastern towns of Miches and Punta Cana to look into real estate projects with art dealer and promoter George Nader.
He was photographed Friday afternoon after a meeting with German architects Lars Kruckeberg and Wolfram Putz at a hotel in the capital’s colonial district. The architects had previously refurbished Pitt and girlfriend Angelina Jolie’s house in Los Angeles.
I guess we were correct in reporting that the purchase of the Chateau Gabriel in France was a hoax.
We will be hunting down pictures next, so keep staying tuned.
