Vineyards, fine wine and jet leases: where to visit

With thousands of beautiful vineyards producing delicious wines across the world, it can be tricky to decide where to head on your next wine-filled holiday. If you’re looking to sample the very best that the industry has to offer, we recommend heading to one of the following destinations by private plane. With beautiful rolling vineyards, quaint towns, traditional cuisine and of course exquisite wines to explore, we’re sure your trip will be nothing short of extraordinary. And, when you travel there with us, you can enjoy all the perks of a luxurious private plane without the responsibility and costs of a jet lease or purchase.

Tuscany, Italy

Tuscany is world-renowned as the home of some of the finest Italian wine, most notably Chianti. This region boasts thousands of hectares of rolling green vineyards, where the warm climate and sunny days give grapes their distinct flavour. From traditional farmyards to medieval castles, there are many places to sample the best the region has to offer.

How to get there? There are several airports you can fly into when you hire or lease an executive jet, including Galileo Galilei International Airport in Pisa and Amerigo Vespucci Airport in Florence.

Champagne, France

Nestled in north-eastern France, Champagne is a famous region most known for its sparkling white wine. The chalky soil and moderate climate are what give the wine its distinct flavour, and the iconic fizz is the result of the natural carbonation process. Maison Ruinart is a must-see during your visit to the region - it’s the first house to be established here and is rich with history, dating back to the 18th century.

How to get there? To get to Champagne on your private jet lease or hire, head to Paris Charles de Gaulle airport, Paris Orly airport or Epinal Mirecourt airport.

Barossa Valley, Australia

The Barossa Valley sits in southern Australia around an hour’s drive from Adelaide. For over 160 years it has been producing some of the world’s finest wines, thanks to the highly fertile land and warm climate. Sit back, relax and enjoy a glass of Barossa Shiraz with its big fruit flavours, or a refreshing Chardonnay.

How to get there? The closest airport to the Barossa Valley is Adelaide International airport which you can reach when you hire or lease an executive jet.

Mendoza, Argentina

In the western part of Argentina sits the Mendoza region, where you can enjoy many fantastic wine tours. As it sits at the base of the Andes mountain range, the scenery is absolutely spectacular, as vast vineyards meet snow-capped peaks. There are three key areas to enjoy during your visit, including Maipu Valley, Lujan de Cuyo, and Uco Valley. Make sure you try the world-famous Malbec here, as well as Cabernet Sauvignon.

How to get there? The Mendoza Airport is the best place to touch down in your jet lease or rental.
