Sting trumps celebrity wine rating

English singer-songwriter Sting’s Tuscan red Sister Moon has been voted the number one celebrity wine by ratings app Vivino, trumping the likes of Brangelina and Donald Trump.


The crooner’s IGT Toscana Sister Moon wine received a 4.2/5 rating from users of the app, putting it ahead of American director Francis Ford Coppola’s Director’s Cut on 4/5. A somewhat surprising entry is rapper Nicki Minaj, whose Mynx Fusions Moscato scooped third place.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Provençal rosé Miraval came in joint fourth place with Peaky Blinders star Sam Neill’s Picnic Pinot Noir from Central Otago.

Presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s Monticello red only managed a 3.7/5 rating, with Cliff Richard’s Portuguese Vida Nova rosé close behind on 3.6/5.

Bringing up the rear were The Rolling Stones with their Forty Licks Merlot, Drew Barrymore’s Italian Pinot Grigio and AC/DC’s Back in Black Shiraz.

Last year Sting Sting revealed that he sings in his wine cellar and likes to think the wines “take it in”. He and wife Trudie Styler have been making wines at their 16th century, 350-hectare Tenuta il Palagio biodynamic estate in Tuscany for the last 15 years.

The couple make a quartet of reds named Sister Moon, When We Dance and Casino Delle Wie, whose name translates as “little house by the roads”. The latest addition to the lineup is Message in a Bottle, an IGT Tocana red blend of Sangiovese, Syrah and Merlot aged for a year in French oak barrels.

Vintage Roots is the sole importer of Sting’s wines in the UK, with the range starting at £11.99 for ‘When We Dance’ Chianti. Vivino has grown to become the world’s most downloaded wine app with 16 million users.
