We Offer Our Tour Guests Two Wineries by Air
Our more adventurous private Los Angeles tour guests request sightseeing activities that are a little different. Instead of driving up into the Santa Monica Mountains above Malibu to visit the local wineries we fly in one of our luxury helicopters. We now offer two destinations to enjoy a wine tasting tour in a helicopter. One of our tours (above) lands in a pastoral setting near where we can serve a gourmet picnic lunch along with a private wine tasting session of favored vintages from the family vineyard. The other tour lands on a constructed helipad adjacent to a beautiful Tuscan estate where the home, pool and other amenities are available for our guests’ use. Of course, wine tasting is a part of any tour arrangement we make at this mountaintop estate and vineyard so familiar to Hollywood celebrities and filmmakers. We even expect to add more wine-related destinations as the wine region around Temecula grows in popularity with aficionados. Finally, let us just say that the Napa wine region is not out of our reach.
Wine Themed Private Tour in Hollywood
Walking with our private Los Angeles tour guests up near the Hollywood Sign we get a good view of the Hollywood Classic vineyard nearby. That’s it in the photograph, right above the local cactus that grows as well as the vineyard in our Mediterranean climate. The area around the sign and Lake Hollywood truly exemplifies the varied vegetation of our region – a mixture of palm trees, oaks and all sorts of succulents and grasses. We call it chaparral, others call it xeriscaping. Either way, it is quite beautiful throughout the year once you get used to it. And, of course, from the vines you get wine and from the cactus you get tequila so it’s all good!
