Chateau Sting, Coming to a Wine Bar Near You

Grape news! The Police frontman is going into the wine business, expects first bottles this fall

The celebrity vintner field is getting crowded. Soon joining wines from Olivia Newton-John, Cliff Richard and Francis Ford Coppola on the shelf at your local liquor emporium will be wine produced at the Italian country retreat of none other than Sting. About 30,000 bottles from the Tuscan property, called Il Palagio, are expected to go on sale this fall in select countries, including the U.S.

No news yet on the wine's name, says the AP, but you can expect Sting's sips to be "based on the Sangiovese grape, with a touch of Cabernet and Merlot." And there may be a Chianti in the works, too.
