Got $50,000? Then You've Got a Private Jet to Taste 70 Wines in Napa Valley

So, which one?

Quick question: do you like wine? How about private jets? Now, how do you feel about wine and a private jet? Exactly. They're awesome on their own, but put the two together and your salivary glands start working overtime.

If you think you can handle tasting 70+ wines in two days after stepping off a Magellan private jet, then listen up. Napa is about to celebrate their second annual wine festival, called Flavor! Napa Valley, and they're doing it in proper baller style by offering a package deal that bundles everything from airport transportation to the private flight to Napa, to a 5-star hotel and the aforementioned wine marathon.

$50,000 is the starting price, depending on what size of Magellan jet you'd like and how far you'll be flying. That's for two people, and includes far more than just the PJ.

Here's the details on what's included:

· A gourmet-catered roundtrip private flight to Napa for two people in a Magellan jet (no fuel surcharges).
· Luxury transportation to and from airports
· Two nights, breakfast and welcome amenity at the 5-star Meadowood Napa Valley resort.
· Passes for two to the Flavor! Napa Valley festival, plus tickets to "Appellation Trail: Tasting Napa Valley" and "Conservatory Dinner with Larry Forgione."
· Two tickets to the $3,500-per-ticket "Legends of Napa Valley: A Definitive Tasting," where Sotheby's Nicholas Jackson and other experts will present some 70 wines "that tell the story of the Napa Valley." For example, two wines in the tasting will be the Louis M. Martini 1957 Pinot Noir and the Chateau Montelena 1976 Chardonnay, the latter a vintage that originally helped make Napa a global player in the wine industry.

The entire Flavor! Napa Valley festival takes place November 14-18, but you'll want your private jet to zip in for at least Friday the 16th through Sunday the 18th to catch those rare wines. To inquire about the package or to throw caution to the wind and just book it already, give Magellan Jets a call at 1-877-550-5387 and tell them you want to go to Napa and make with the wining and dining.

BONUS! Traveling by private jet means no carry-on liquid rules to worry about, so buying bottles by the case is totally doable.
