Sister Moon Wine from Sting and Trudie Styler
Music legend Sting, his wife Trudie Styler discuss their Sister Moon Wine with wine expert Alan York in the beautiful setting of the Italian countryside. Sting and Trudie restored the grand Villa Il Palagio, which is set into the picturesque hills of Tuscany, and opened a farm shop selling wine grown on the estate, fresh vegetables, olive oil, and honey. They have a strong passion for nature and the organic movement, which is translated into the loving products they create at Il Palagio.
Judit has been a fan of Sting’s music since his days with the band “The Police” and loves the songs “Roxanne”, “If I Ever Lose My Faith in You”, “Message in a Bottle”. She also adores the concept of Il Palagio and would like to restore an estate with vineyard to its former glory.
Corina is not as familiar with Sting’s music, but likes “Fields of Gold”, “Dessert Rose”.
The first IGT Toscanca wine from Il Palagio was called “Sister Moon” after Sting’s hit song and has aromas of cherries, licorice and floral notes. The varietal is a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon and aged for two years in French barriques. Working together with Alan York, who is a biodynamic winegrower consultant, Paolo Caciorgna who is from a Tuscan wine producing family and consults for many wineries in Italy, and with Estate Manager Paolo Rossi who was born in Villa Il Palagio and watches over vineyards and estate.
