      An Evening in Tuscany featuring Sting's Wine

      Michael Green of Wine Boy Imports Inc. specializes in the history of Italian wine and he emphasizes that you would not want to drink the wine the Romans drank; blended with seawater and herbs, yuck.

      We’ll be featuring the wines, olive oil and honey from Trudie and Sting’s biodynamic Tuscan farm Tenuta Il Palagio. Since finding the estate 14 years ago, Sting and Trudie have taken great pains to restore the villa, outbuildings, olive groves and vineyards to their former glory, always respecting the history and architecture of the buildings and following organic and biodynamic principles of farming. The resulting beauty and atmosphere of Il Palagio leaves their guests restored and transformed. Having successfully produced very fine olive oil and honeys for a number of years, Il Palagio is now enjoying similar success with its wine. The Super Tuscans Sister Moon, and Casino delle Vie, as well as the Chianti When We Dance, have been highly praised by wine lovers and critics, and the future of the vineyards is proving to be very exciting. Italian by blood, Trusted Expert Michael Bigattini, will give a quick talk on our Vino e Cucina tour in May which features a full day at Stings Tuscan estate.
