So, you and a group of friends want to take in the sights, sounds, and tastes of wine country. The first question, where to? Heading to California for Napa Valley? Maybe you want to make it a European getaway and fly out to France to take in the historic views of Bordeaux. No matter the destination, don’t let a commercial flight ruin your getaway.
You can use private air charter flights to vineyards as an alternative to commercial flight. It will help and your crew to avoid the threat of delays, congested security lines, and the passenger with the pet skunk service animal (that just happens to sit in-between you and your travel partner).
