Pig Roast with Sting!

Fantasy come true

Tuscan Pig Roast at Sting & Trudie's Place

Here's two of my fantasies rolled into one: Sting and his wife are hosting a pig roast at their estate in Tuscany and (for $2200) the public is invited!

Anyone interested in taking me?

Tender is the night at "Divino Tuscany"
Tuscany is an iconic region that, over the centuries, has produced some of the world's most celebrated wines. A land of unparalleled beauty and extraordinary cuisine, it has an abundance of art and architecture that has prompted UNESCO to populate the region with a cluster of World Heritage sites. "Divino Tuscany" brings together all these features in a 4-day Luxury & Wine Event for wine connoisseurs and VIPs that will take place in Florence and Tuscany from June 2nd to June 5th.

The event provides one-of-a-kind experiences in superb settings with the participation of an exceptional roster of hosts to pay tribute to Tuscany's outstanding winemaking tradition. Over the course of four incredible days, attendees will take part in a breathtaking sequence of wine tastings, seminars, special dinners and enthralling entertainment.


Il Palagio, Sting's Tuscan villa
Wine is the leading theme, but the event encompasses all that revolves around the nectar of Bacchus. Historic wineries, castles and palazzos belonging to ancient, noble families will be opened up just for attendees, and sumptuous food will be served in exquisite surroundings by restaurateurs of the caliber of Giorgio Pinchiorri of Florence's renowned Enoteca Pinchiorri. The program includes an inaugural concert by world-famous violinist, Joshua Bell, and a farewell country barbecue at Il Palagio, Sting and Trudie Styler's beautiful private villa in the Valdarno. For full details of this exceptional event, see our full package description.

Guiding spirits of this signature event are James Suckling, former Senior Editor and European Bureau Chief of "Wine Spectator" and one of the world's most influential wine critics, and IMG Artists, the global leader in arts management and a leading producer of cultural and lifestyle festivals. Founding vintners from the Antinori, Frescobaldi, Mazzei, Ricasoli, Il Borro, Petrolo and Castello Banfi estates are also slated for participation. Designed with the highest level of excellence in mind, "Divino Tuscany" is destined to set a new standard in event creation to coincide with the 150th anniversary of Italy's unification.
