About Il Palagio: Villa Il Palagio estate lies amid the rolling hills of the lush, fertile Tuscan countryside south of Florence. The private home of Sting and his wife Trudie Styler, the favourite retreat for their friends and growing family, this truly remarkable sixteenth-century estate is nestled amongst the vineyards of the Chianti region. From the mid-1500s Il Palagio has harvested, fermented and bottled its own wines. Sting and Trudie have gone to great lengths to keep the tradition alive. Using organic and biodynamic farming methods, they have replanted 11 hectares of vineyards since 2000. Resulting in four beautiful reds: Message in a Bottle, Casino delle Vie, Sister Moon and When We Dance.
“A wine is like a song – it has to tell a story. This is why I named my wines after my biggest hits” says Sting.
