Check In

With excitement in the air, you’ll be greeted by our concierge as you reach your designated hangar. Pedernales Cellars, William Chris Vineyards, and Uplift Vineyard are preparing for your arrival.

Lift Off

Your experience starts with a ride over the picturesque Texas Hill Country, taking in views of rolling hills, vineyards, and scenic landscapes.

Whisked away to Pedernales Cellars, our first stop on the tour greets us with rustic charm and Spanish-inspired architecture. We’ll be guided through a flight of exceptional wine, treating your taste buds to coveted, signature varietals. Each sip reveals a story, a narrative of the winemaker’s artistry and unmistakable Spanish-Rhone influence.


Once aboard the aircraft we’ll make our way north. Soak in the scenery as we soar over a ribbon of blue water with lush greenery along the riverbanks known as the Pedernales River.

The afternoon unfolds as we make our way to the William Chris Vineyards. Authentic Texas wine hits your palate with just the right notes as we overlook the iconic backdrop that is Hill Country. The farm to table lunch thoughtfully prepared by acclaimed chefs will perfectly complement your tasting. You will then be invited to explore the estate’s exquisite wine cellars, where barrels quietly age, preserving the promise of future vintages.

In Air

Back aboard the helicopter, we’ll hover over lush, sprawling vineyards, combining the thrill of flight with the charming beauty Hill Country has to offer.

We’ll touch down at Uplift Vineyard, an exclusive 55-acre estate just northeast of Fredericksburg. If you’ve never heard of Uplift Vineyard before, it’s because it is a members-only winery recently purchased by William Chris Wine Company, unavailable to the general public. Deep in the cellar, past rows and rows of aging barrels, you’ll be guided through a tasting of a premier selection of wines hand-crafted by winemaker Claire Richardson. The flavors will envelop you as you swirl, sniff, and sip your way through the vineyard. Catch a final glimpse of the stunning landscape and rolling hills before we lift off one final time.


Our tour concludes back at your hangar of origin where you’ll be able to start reminiscing about your unforgettable experience.
