Sting and his wife Trudie are getting the ultimate revenge in the wine world by producing delicious wines. Though they had been swindled in the beginning by a dubious duke, the wines the vineyard are producing now are of good quality. The couple enjoys a natural lifestyle with everything organic. Having a glass of wine, relaxing with her husband, that is Trudie’s idea of a good time.
- Sting and his wife Trudie Styler came to Italian restaurant Franco’s in Jermyn Street on Monday 10 April to promote the full range of wines from Il Palagio – the couple’s Chianti-based property.
- When Sting was asked by the drinks business whether he had bought the property with winemaking in mind, he said that it was the house that first attracted him, but it was a glass of wine during price negotiations that prompted him to buy the estate, which he did in 1999.
- A couple of years later, once Sting had restored the house, he threw a party, and asked the team running the farm to provide wine for the event from the estate.
“Today, Sting and Styler are producing a range of six wines, including a white and rosé, using a mixture of some locally-sourced grapes and estate-grown fruit from 13 hectares of vineyards, with prices ranging from £15 to almost £40 for the Sister Moon.”
