Specialized Wine Tasting Tours

Specialized offers a California wine experience like no other! Get out of the car and into the air, turning travel time into tasting time and see much more of the famous Central Coast wine region.

Your adventure begins and ends at one of our departure airports with a wine tasting and visit to a spectacular winery that we have personally worked with for years.

Your flight will depart from the beautiful Monterey Coastal area direct to Santa Lucia Highlands AVA, roughly about 25 miles inland from the Bay. Your view will be of the Monterey Bay, Salinas Valley agriculture and the Santa Lucia Mountain range as you travel over one the world's finest wine growing locations. The SLH (Santa Lucia Highlands) is California’s premier cool-climate wine growing district. Its fifty famed mountainside vineyard estates and associated award-winning wine labels set the standard for New World Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah.

On final approach to land at the winery, the excitement will build as you begin to feel like "royalty" and the magic of arriving by helicopter sets-in. Once on the ground, winery staff will greet and aquatint you with the winery.

After had your fill of tasting fine wine and strolling the Barrel room, vineyards and surroundings you will depart back for another scenic flight home with more sightseeing and entertainment from above as you gain a new appreciation for the SLH, it's vineyards and stunning environment from the air.
