The American actor - who is shooting latest movie, 'Public Enemies', in Illinois - had 10 crates of the alcoholic beverage delivered him from France because he hates the local wines.

A source told Britain's Daily Express newspaper: "He is really enjoying filming but the only problem is that Illinois isn't exactly famous for its vineyards and Johnny is quite particular about his wine. When he couldn't put up with the local wine any longer, he decided to organise for a shipment of his own to be sent across."

Depp lives in France with his long-term partner French singer Vanessa Paradis and their two children, eight-year-old Lily-Rose and six-year-old Jack.

The 44-year-old actor has previously admitted he feels more at home in Europe than the US.

He said: "I love going back to America, to see my family and friends. But it's wonderful to get back to France and live in a tiny village with nothing around."
