Expanding its premium portfolio offering, Evaton to serve as exclusive importer for Sting and Trudie Styler’s award-winning wines
May 14, 2021 (Stamford, CT): Evaton, Inc., a national importer of international fine wines and spirits announces its official partnership with Il Palagio estate. Effective today, Evaton will serve as the exclusive U.S. importer for the portfolio of wines including Roxanne, When We Dance and Casino delle Vie, Baci Sulla Bocca, New Day and Sister Moon–produced on Trudie Styler and Sting’s beautiful Tuscan estate.
Il Palagio estate lies amid the rolling hills of the lush, fertile Tuscan countryside south of Florence. From the mid-1500s Il Palagio harvested, fermented and bottled its own wines. What started simply as a private summer home, today the estate includes exquisite vineyards that the couple has lovingly restored and managed.

“As a company grounded in quality brands and estates, we are excited to expand our premium wine portfolio and welcome Il Palagio to our family.” said Stephen Brauer, CEO of Evaton, Inc. “The great lengths that Sting and Trudie have gone to keep the estate’s winemaking tradition alive comes through emphatically in the premium wines they produce. This dedication perfectly complements the Evaton ethos and brands within our portfolio. We are truly looking forward to a strong partnership together.”
Sting adds, “Il Palagio is one of our favorite places on Earth, which is why Trudie and I have placed a lot of care into the estate and the development of the wines. We are excited to enter a partnership with Evaton, a thoughtful importer that aligns with our values and ambition for the property.”
