Presentation of the vineyard
Il Palagio is located not far from Figline Valdarno, just south of Florence but a little north of Siena. The property covers 350 hectares of land, but the vineyard only represents a part of the area. Il Palagio has a several hundred-year history and several different noble owner families have passed until Sting and his wife Trudie came over the place in 1999. A thorough renovation has been carried out and today there's not only wine-growing, but also bee-, vegetable- and olive cultivation are conducted.
