“Il Palagio is a 350 hectare estate owned by musician Sting and his wife Trudie Styler. The estate was in disrepair when they purchased it in 1999, and the vineyards were replanted over the next few years.
The Estate overlooks the distant Tuscan hills and the undulating countryside which has always had profound agricultural significance. The nearby medieval town of Figline Valdarno was known as the “barn of Florence” for its abundant corn, grains, wine, oil, sugar beets, peaches, apricots and cherries.
The entire estate is now run biodynamically and Sting has assembled a dream team to work his estate, with the late biodynmic pioneer Alan York giving viticultural advice, Paolo Caciorgna overseeing the winemaking and terroir expert Pedro Parra helping keep the soils in order.”
