Wine Made by Sting on his Tuscan Estate Recognized as ‘One of Italy’s Finest’
The red wine, named Sister Moon after one of his songs, is acclaimed by American critics and organizers of a prestigious wine fair. The robust red produced by Sting, the British rock star on his country estate in Tuscany, has been named as one of Italy’s finest 100 wines, placing him alongside centuries-old aristocratic wine making dynasties such as the Frescobaldi and Antinori families. The selection of reds and whites was made by critics from Wine Spectator, an authoritative American magazine. Sting makes the wine on his 900 acre estate, Il Palagio, set amid the rolling hills of Tuscany. He bought the estate, where wine has been made for centuries, more than 15 years ago. When not travelling or performing, he lives on the estate with his wife, actress and film producer Trudie Styler and their children. The wine sells for about $37 per bottle.
