Sting and Wife Trudie Make Wine at Their Home in Tuscany

Sting  :

“Il Palagio is like stepping into a painting.
 And  one  of  my  favourite  places  on  Earth.
I hope you fall in love with it as much as I have."

“I never imagined that I would ever be able to buy
 such a big house. In the mornings it is always very beautiful here,
especially  when  it's  foggy.  It  seems  as  if  neighboring  hills  are
 appearing from sea waves. In the evenings I can endlessly watch
  the movement of clouds in a beautiful, sunset sky ... "

The estate Villa Il Palagio, which is located among the
 hilly,   fertile Tuscan countryside south of Florence,  was
  purchased by Sting in 1997 from Duke Simon Vincenzo di San Clemente.
  Mansion surrounded by vineyards built in the 16th century in the Chianti region
  above the picturesque town of Figline Valdarno, a 45-minute drive from
  Florence. The updated house became for Sting and his wife
Trudy Styler is their favorite summer vacation spot
  a large family and their friends.

Estate - villa, its guest houses, vineyards and olive
 groves  were lovingly restored by the new owners  and
 became fully functioning organic farm. Now homemade lavender and
olive oil, honey and wines are sold under the Il Palagio label. family now
  Stinga  can  enjoy  all  the  delights  of  rural  life : thanks  to  successful
 operation of the farm, they have their own dairy,   wine cellars and apiary.
 On  the   site  "Il Palagio"  you  can  buy  five  varieties  of  honey  and
 three varieties of wine from their vineyards. Vineyard renovation works
orchards and olive groves were carried out for seven years under
  by landscape designer Arabella Lennox-Boyd.

In the absence of the owners, the villa functions as a hotel.
  Guests can practice yoga in a special room, enjoy a giant
 chessboard on the terrace,  areas with sun loungers
in the garden, wine cellar and swimming pool.
