Sting and his wife Trudie Styler have announced that the inaugural vintage of their Tuscan red wine, Message in a Bottle 2011, is now available in all major markets and online at Amazon.
“In addition to our small production of Il Palagio wines that have been available in the United States for the past decade and always sell out quickly, we wanted to produce one in greater quantities that more of our fans could enjoy,” announced Sting.
Message in a Bottle is a collaboration between the couple and viticulturalist Dan O’Donnell, winemaker Paolo Caciorgna, and vintner and importer Christopher Nickolopoulos, CEO of Maritime Wine Trading Collective.
Nickolopoulos is responsible for introducing several family estate wine producers from all over the world to U.S. markets, including wines from New Zealand, South Africa, Sicily, Tuscany, and Portugal, among others.
Renowned wine and cigar critic James Suckling recently awarded Message in a Bottle 91 points. Message in a Bottle retails for $19.99.
