VistaJet's New Wine Program

There is nothing better than a glass of wine when you take to the skies, but often you will find that the wine selection onboard a flight is hardly inspiring. This is now all changing thanks to the first global program for wine in the air from VistaJet - the first and only global business aviation company. This will be the most expansive experiences of wine during a flight and will completely transform the flying experience.

A New Experience

The idea comes from VistaJet Founder and Chairman, Thomas Flohr, who is an avid collector of wine himself with over 3,000 bottles in his cellar. For Flohr, a glass of wine onboard a flight should be the same as in a restaurant, but this has never been available on a global scale until now. Dining has come a long way when it comes to flying so it only makes sense that now people can enjoy the very best wine and gain a better knowledge and insight into the best wines from around the world.

A Unique Challenge

One of the major challenges that this new program posed was the fact that factors like altitude, cabin pressure and air quality can all impact the taste of a wine. To work around this problem, VistaJet brought in some of the world's greatest wine experts who sampled and compared wines from around the world both on the ground and in the air. This gave them an idea as to how the changing environment impacting the wine to determine the best wines for the program.

These flights provided valuable insight which helped them to create The VistaJet Wine Program. This includes: The Wine in the Sky Questionnaire: A number of popular oenophiles who provide suggestions for tasting wine around the world and guidance on how to select wines considering the impact of flying on our senses.

Signature Wine List: A handpicked selection of the finest wines from around the world which also perform the best high in the sky to be enjoyed in the luxury of a private jet.

Wine Tours: Members can benefit from personal tours around many of the world's most iconic vineyards and wine regions as well as access to wine auctions and other events.

The World of Wine Concierge: Benefit from tasting advice prior to the flight and at the destination to help you to discover wines and vineyards from the area that you are visiting.

Wine and travel go hand-in-hand with so many fantastic regions in areas all around the world. Despite this, wine has never been a big part of the flying experience until now. The VistaJet Wine Program will help travellers to enhance their exploration of wine both on the flight itself and at destinations around the world. For anyone with an interest in wine and travel, this program will give you an incredible experience that you cannot get elsewhere.
