Flying High with Cultured Vine

Cultured Vine provides unrivaled luxury experiences in the Napa Valley — so it was a natural fit to partner with Quantum Jets, offering our guests the chance to start the white-glove treatment before they even arrive.

Quantum prides itself on providing exemplary service and tailors each trip to the precise expectations of its clients. It uses a worldwide network of high-level aircraft owners and management companies, which allows it to deliver unparalleled pricing as well as a wide range of concierge services. The fleet of luxury aircraft at its disposal includes models from very light jets to turbo-props, with spacious, elegant interiors and attentive on-board service.

With Quantum’s global span of partnerships, Cultured Vine can arrange private flights to the Napa Valley from almost any city in the world. In addition, we’ve created two specific itineraries in tandem with Quantum to offer our guests the ultimate in luxury travel to wine country.

With our High Roller Escape, guests can depart Las Vegas in the morning for a memorable two-hour private flight to Napa. You’ll be met on the tarmac with Champagne by your Cultured Vine host, Napa native Guy Barstad, and board your luxury ground transportation for a day of elevated wine tasting and dining.

This includes a morning tasting in a secluded cave cellar at Covert Estate with renowned vintners Elan and Julien Fayard. You’ll then enjoy a private lunch with another prominent vintner, followed by a winery tour, vineyard walk, and personalized education of the premium wines you’ll be tasting.

That afternoon, you’ll make a visit to a private residence of the Mondavi family, tasting two celebrated boutique brands — Dark Matter, a 100% Zinfandel, and Aloft, a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon — with the four Mondavi sisters. Then board your private jet to return to Vegas in time to spend the evening as you wish.

Our Ultimate Jetsetter Escape flies you from Los Angeles to Napa for a range of over-the-top experiences — you can choose the length of your stay. Your accommodations will be lavish — from an indulgent suite at a five-star hotel to The Villa, a 6,600-square-foot home that sleeps up to ten guests.

This experience also begins with a personal greeting from your Cultured Vine host, Guy Barstad, and luxury ground transport. Your visit with the Mondavi sisters to taste their boutique labels will be one of several private wine experiences with some of Napa Valley’s most celebrated vintners. You’ll also enjoy a customized dinner menu at a private home overlooking stunning wineries. And enjoy an exclusive, sommelier-led tasting that replicates the famed 1976 “Judgment of Paris” wine tasting in France that put the Napa Valley on the map. You’ll fly back to L.A. knowing that you’ve seen a side of the Napa Valley that’s revealed to the very few.

Pricing for both packages varies depending on group size, up to 10 people.
