[MUSIC] I make a lot of music here. Sometimes I'll
go and play music in the wine cellar. Apparently it's
good for the wine. [MUSIC] The proof of the pudding
is in the tasting. And the taste of this wine
was exceptional. [MUSIC] When we're in Italy, it's kind of
natural. The food is just seasonal and it goes with
the wine. [MUSIC] We're in the middle of Tuscany, about
40 minutes south of Florence on the way to Siena.
And this is my home, actually. [UNKNOWN] and I have
had a long-standing relationship with Tuscany. I like the food.
I like the people. Fashion is here, design is here.
But they also have this Very historic culture, [UNKNOWN] most
food, [UNKNOWN] most wine, most music. And there was some
synchronistic timing, really, in that Sting is on tour. We're
Launching a wine, Sister Moon and so we thought let's
have a party, let's have pairing. So my approach to
this evening was natural Italian cuisine. And the Tuscan food
experience, it's basically the ribolita, the polenta, the beefsteak Florentine,
the bruschetta Everything is synonymous with the land and the
wine. Good morning Joey. Good morning Trudy. How are you?
This been a very long time. And I'm on 20
years. It's been part of our lives. We could have
like a short had with the way, that we talk
about food. So tell me, what's with the menu for
today. Okay so, I'm gonna have, I'm gonna start out
with the pizza down stairs. I choose the main course,
a rabbit dish, and a pigeon dish and a beef
steak. Which is the beef steak florentine. And Sting and
Trudie's new wine, Sister Moon. It's a third merloe, a
third. Cabernet Sauvignon, and a third, Sangiovese, and that's what
makes it super Tuscan. It'll be a perfect blend with
this meal. I have some of your wine here, there's
Sister Moon. Sister Moon is one of my songs, I
think I wrote it in the mid 80s. And the
method of farming we're using is called biodynamic Farming. And
by god farming is a strange sort of mixture of
science and voodoo where you plant by the phases of
the moon. [MUSIC] For me, you know, the whole organic
movement by dynamic movement can only be the proof of
the pudding's in the tasting. And the taste of this
wine was exceptional. [MUSIC] This wine should reflect the magic
that this property has. And I think it will, touch
wood. Music! [UNKNOWN] [MUSIC] A little loud in my ear.
I make a lot of music here. I've made, I
think, four albums here. I've written a lot of songs
here. I have a studio across the courtyard there and
the top floor is music and the bottom floor is
the So I think the music seeps down through the
stories. Sometimes I go and play music in the wine
cellar. Apparently it's good for the wine. As long as
you sing in tune, it's fine. He manages always to
be a student of music. He doesn't know it all.
He's always asking questions of it. Okay, could we start?
Sorry. [INAUDIBLE] [MUSIC] Just a cast away. [MUSIC] My idea
of heaven is that we'll pass on one day and
we'll arrive and they'll be a groaning board with most
delicious wines and food and indeed music. And there will
be an eternity Eating and drinking, and in great company
and laughing. That's my idea of heaven, and I'm lucky
enough to have heaven on earth. [MUSIC] Thank you.
