Sting Searching for Workers to Pick His Grapes, Wants Them to Pay $345 Per Day
After he started renting out his estate in Tuscany, Italy, for $10,000 per week, Sting came up with an insane strategy to milk those poor tourists even more - he grants them a privilege to perform manual labor on his grounds for a mere fee of $345 per day.

As Telegraph reports, the Police frontman is inviting visitors to "roll up their sleeves" and help him pick olives and grapes, as long as they're prepared to cough up a few pennies for the honor.

The event takes place at Sting's 900 acre property, Il Palagio, near Florence, and promises the participants a chance to experience "succulent grapes and luscious wines, tart olives, green rolling hills, warm autumn sunshine, Cypress trees like tall sentries and the adventure and excitement of being part of the annual vendemmia, the traditional October grape and November olive harvests respected by generations of Tuscan farmers."

"Start the day with a picnic on the expansive lawn and a briefing from the estate manager to help you understand your work as a farmer-for-a-day: learn about the soil, the vines and trees, and techniques for harvesting," the statement reads.
