'Pirates of The Carribbean' star Johnny Depp missed his home comforts while working on a new movie in the US - so he arranged for a shipment of wine to be sent over from his house in France.

The actor lives full time in the south of France with his French partner Vanessa Paradis and their two children - and the couple owns a vineyard where they produce their own wine.

Depp couldn't stand being without his beloved bottles of wine while working on new crime film Public Enemies in Illinois - so he arranged for a shipment to be sent over to the movie set for him and his fellow cast and crewmembers to enjoy.

A source tells British newspaper the Daily Mirror: "Johnny's a fine wine buff and has his own vineyard. He's had 10 crates of his own wine shipped over to keep him going.

"He is very serious about his hobby and does everything himself - from selecting the grapes to working the machinery. Johnny's a connoisseur.

"It's fair to say that he's made filming a far more enjoyable experience."
