If you’re a frequent private flyer, you may think you already know everything about premium aviation. But did you know that VistaJet boasts a global specialist wine programme? The first of its kind, it guarantees premium wine to flyers at any time, anywhere in the skies. Why not explore its story to find out more?
Leaders in luxury – on and off land
VistaJet may be a young company – but across its 15-year lifespan, it’s gained huge traction. And it’s easy to see why. From its lavish interiors to its dedicated staff, it offers a superior trip through the skies. Unsurprisingly, it attracts people with a taste for luxury – and that’s what largely inspired VistaJet founder and chairman Thomas Flohr to create the program. Readily available to any VistaJet passenger that can drink legally, it goes beyond a signature wine list to offer a truly unique exploration of the world of wine.Private jets have never offered such a luxury experience!
Inside the programme
So, just how does the programme work? Well, as you’ll no doubt know already, certain aspects of flying – such as altitude, cabin pressure and air quality – can affect the taste of wine. That’s why selecting labels for a flight is crucial; choose the right one, and you’ll be able to fully enjoy its flavour. With the help of experts from the finest vineyards, Flohr has combed the world’s most esteemed vineyards to curate a delicious wine menu that can withstand the effects of flying. Spanning a range of notes, the list is designed to cater to an array of preferences.
In addition to supreme wines, as a VistaJet passenger, you’re also invited to join The VistaJet Wine Club, through which you’ll receive 12 carefully selected wines each year. To help you experience wines on another level, the company also delivers blind tasting sessions. Hosted by trained staff, they allow you to build your knowledge of notes and grape varieties. So the next time you throw a dinner party, you can serve wine with complete confidence. Members also have the opportunity to enjoy personal Wine Tours, where they can visit the most celebrated vineyards and wine regions in the world. Each tour features a three-day adventure hosted by Italian wine masters Antinori, which includes a trip to the historical vineyards of Tuscany and Umbria – by helicopter!
Private flying is designed to be sophisticated in every way – so, it makes sense that it should deliver the finest selection of wine to passengers. The VistaJet Wine Program offers all that you need to become a true wine connoisseur.
