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.

The newly appointed editor-in-chief of Esquire Magazine, Michael Sebastian, recently told the press that he wants to get away from the idea that the magazine's reader is "a middle-aged white guy who likes brown liquor and brown leather"). Which should send chills down the ad dept's spine working on those Scotch and bourbon accounts!
Adding a squeeze of fresh lime and a dash of salt to a lager or pilsner has long been Mexican tradition, and in the 1980s, this practice evolved into the refreshing beer cocktail known as a michelada. The popularity of the drink grew across Mexico and, thanks to the influx of immigrants, it translated well to restaurants and bars across the U.S.
Rosé wine is made in almost every region in the world, from many different grape varieties. And rose-colored wine is produced in a sweet, dry, sparkling, and even fortified style. Yet the classic style of dry rosé wine from Provence sets the trend that many other wine-producing regions around the world want to emulate.
Dominique Ansel moved from Paris to New York City to work at Daniel Boulud's French flagship Daniel as the executive pastry chef, a position he held for 6 years. Fast forward 15 years later, and Ansel has become a household name after the invention of a certain croissant-donut hybrid, and his namesake bakery has expanded beyond SoHo to include branches around the world.
