Johnny Depp wants to make his own wine.

The 'Alice in Wonderland' actor - who lives in Plan-de-la-Tour in southern France with partner Vanessa Paradis and their children Lily-Rose, 10, and seven-year-old Jack - has a dream to create his own alcohol, but would insist on trying it for himself before selling to the public.

He said: "I have a secret desire to make wine. But I'll keep it for myself before daring to sell it commercially.

"In the Var where I live, it's very interesting. The region is notable for rose and it's very good, though I prefer red myself."

The 46-year-old star credits his family for helping curb his wild ways and admits he would do anything for his kids.

He added to France's VSD magazine: "France has given me everything. A marvellous family and also an equilibrium which I missed enormously.

"With Vanessa and the kids, we live in a sort of little village in the south and I have the impression of being in paradise.

"Everything revolves around the children. 'Where will we go for a walk? Should we eat at the house with them or maybe go for a picnic?' These are the problems we face there."
