Antonio Banderas Buys Stake In Spanish Winery

Posted: Updated:
Hollywood heartthrob Antonio Banderas has joined a growing number of celebrities whose passion for wine has led to ownership of Spanish vineyards, his winery co-owners say.

Banderas, 48, who has appeared in the "Legend of Zorro" and as the voice of Puss in Boots in several "Shrek" movies, has bought 50 percent of a state-of-the-art winery on the banks of the Duero River in northern Spain, the winery says.

The Spanish actor joins a list of owner-producers that includes American actor Michael Douglas, French star Gerard Depardieu and Spanish singer Joan Manuel Serrat.

The 230 hectare (570 acre) property, called Anta Banderas, makes red and rose wines from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and local grape Tempranillo, the winery said Tuesday in a statement.

(This version CORRECTS to say Banderas voiced Puss in Boots in Shrek movies, sted Shrek.)
