VistaJet announces new partnership with maverick Burgundy winemaker Olivier Bernstein

VistaJet Wine Program

Cellar-to-cellar transportation

  • The most sough-after wine in the world;
  • A handpicked selection of Grand Cru wines for VistaJet Members to enjoy on board the Global 7500 fleet;
  • A limited edition seven-bottle case of specially selected Grand Cru wines available directly to VistaJet Members;
  • Demonstrating passion and vision once again, VistaJet launches the first of its kind cellar-to-cellar global wine transportation service to guarantee the quality and authenticity of Olivier Bernstein wines for collectors anywhere, anytime.

London, September 20th, 2023: VistaJet, the first and only global business aviation company, expands its iconic wine program with an exclusive partnership with Olivier Bernstein to offer wine drinkers and collectors the opportunity to savor and connect with one of Burgundy’s finest winemakers — both in-flight on board the game-changing Global 7500 aircraft and at destination. The partnership is also celebrated with the creation of a limited edition seven-bottle case of a specially selected assortment of Grand Cru wines, which will be available for Members to purchase and deliver to their cellar directly from Bernstein’s cellar in Beaune, France.

This pioneering move came to fruition after a conversation between VistaJet Founder and Chairman Thomas Flohr and Bernstein, about how best to maintain the integrity of fine wines.

We have worked with experts to understand how taste and smell are affected by the atmosphere in a pressurized cabin and found that nasal sensors’ reception of aromas are limited owing to the lower air pressure that comes with a lower humidity. In particular, fruit flavors become diminished, while bitterness and spiciness are largely unaffected. These insights allow us to carefully select wines that will give the best flavor and fullness at altitude.” — Thomas Flohr, VistaJet’s Founder and Chairman.

Burgundy wines are fragile, complex and can be quite difficult to understand. They can lose their magic and sensuality if they are not correctly stored or delivered. Sourcing directly from the growers’ cellars and having them delivered directly is, to me, the ultimate guarantee of quality.” — Olivier Bernstein.

VistaJet x Olivier Bernstein

Handpicked selection of Grand Cru wines for VistaJet Members

Offering this additional and exclusive service to its Members is an example of VistaJet’s commitment to providing a seamless, dedicated service. VistaJet’s global infrastructure and network make it possible to offer this creative service to its clients in any part of the world.

For our Members, who are wine collectors and connoisseurs, this service guarantees safe transportation of their precious wine, with no change of hands in transit. We fly globally, so we can offer ultimate convenience and safety anywhere in the world.Matteo Atti, Chief Marketing Officer, VistaJet.

Wine in the sky

The partnership brings together two visionary brands that are pioneers in their industries. In only 20 years, both Bernstein’s wines and VistaJet have grown quickly to global acclaim. The combination of passion and creativity with business sets VistaJet apart in the private aviation industry. Initiatives such as VistaJet’s jet-to-cellar demonstrate the company’s commitment to offering not just efficient and reliable private journeys, but the most considered and private travel services.

VistaJet has created the first global program to offer the best possible wine experience in the sky and catering to Members collecting, discovering and developing a deeper knowledge of wine from every region in the world. To further enhance the onboard tasting, VistaJet Cabin Hosts are also trained by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust to Level 2.

VistaJet’s onboard Signature Wine List includes wines sourced from some of the world’s most iconic vineyards considering the effects of flying on taste. The list features classics such as Ruinart Champagnes, Pessac Léognan and the Gaja Rossj Bass Chardonnay, as well as Napa’s Newton Winery Single Vineyard Chardonnay ‘The Bay’ 2018 and Newton Winery Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain 2018.

To complete the journey, VistaJet Private World connects its Members to the most incredible Chateaux, enhancing tastings with visits and personal introductions to the most incredible wine creators.

Gary White and Matt Damon joined CEOs and global leaders at UN Global Compact Leaders Summit 2023

Leaders from business, government, the UN and civil society gathered at the UN’s largest corporate sustainability event to review the private sector’s contribution to advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

New York, United States of America, Sept. 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Gary White, CEO and Co-founder of and WaterEquity and Matt Damon, Co-founder of, joined Executive Director and CEO of the UN Global Compact, Sanda Ojiambo, CEOs of major corporations and other leaders from the United Nations, governments, civil society and UN Global Compact Local Networks to take stock of business progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the UN Global Compact Leaders Summit 2023.

Alongside the UN General Assembly High-Level Week, this year’s UN Global Compact Leaders Summit addressed business leadership during converging crises, the critical role of a principles-based approach, global trends, and tools and partnerships needed to fully achieve the 2030 Agenda.

New research from the UN Global Compact, Business Leadership in Times of Crisis: Collected Insights from Chief Executive Officers into Successes, Challenges and Areas for Future Focus, shows a dramatic rise of interlinked global challenges is forcing business executives to navigate new levels of uncertainty and hindering progress on the SDGs. The CEOs surveyed urgently call for increased dialogue and partnership with the public sector; for regulatory frameworks to  create a level playing field for business and attract financial flows; for more workforce training, action and public investment to regain balance with nature and clean energy; for global collaboration on artificial intelligence and for consolidation of the fragmented landscape for ambitious achievement.

Currently only 15 per cent of the SDG targets are on track, progress on 48 per cent is weak and insufficient and progress has stalled or gone into reverse on 37 per cent of the SDGs. The United Nations Global Compact-Accenture Global Private Sector Stocktake report, which surveyed over 2,800 business leaders from around the world, showed the the vast majority (94%) of business leaders still view the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a unifying global vision but to achieve them the private sector must focus on the areas where they can have the most impact.

To respond to this call, the UN Global Compact has launched Forward Faster, a new initiative to accelerate private sector action at the pace and scale needed to deliver on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and meet the 2030 Agenda.

Speaking during the event, Sanda Ojiambo, CEO and Executive Director of the UN Global Compact, said: “Time is running out to create the positive change the world so desperately needs. We must all join forces to create a more prosperous and resilient global community. We must move forward faster.”

The session entitled Uniting Leaders for Business Integrity  looked at the importance of business integrity as a driver for impact across the SDG Calls to Action on living wage, climate change, water stewardship, gender equality and SDG investments.

During the Leaders Summit, Gary White, CEO and Co-founder of and WaterEquity and Matt Damon, Co-founder of, looked at how water is one of best investments the world can make to achieve global gender equality, create climate change resilience, and help end the cycle of poverty during the session Moving Forward Faster to Scale Positive Impact in 100 Basins.

Members of the UN Global Compact CFO Coalition for the SDGs examined the central role Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) play in ensuring that private capital flows to the SDGs and that companies make the necessary investments for the sustainability transition and can raise the necessary capital in the session Embracing Systemic Changes in Corporate Finance for the Agenda 2030.

Accelerating a Just Transition to Net-Zero Emissions Globally featured business leaders who are

prioritizing emissions reductions and taking concrete actions to advance a just transition. In Making Living Wage a Reality Expert organizations outlined the groundwork of what it means to pay a living wage and leading companies discussed what this looks like in practice. Meanwhile Equal Pay 2023: Insights from the Global South looked at successful strategies governments and businesses have successfully lobbied and advocated for equal pay through legislation and within their organizations.

In Towards nature-positive business: Take action on the climate-biodiversity nexus leading private sector and key organizations’ representatives demonstrated the relevance of the intersecting climate-nature crisis to business, laid out how companies can start their nature-positive journey and showcased best practices to reverse nature and biodiversity loss.

In Moving Business from Commitment to Action on Human Rights and Labour Rights the panel exchanged insights into specific steps their companies have taken, lessons learned in implementing Human Rights Due Diligence (HRDD), and the influence HRDD processes have had up and down their value chains.

During the Leaders Summit, the UN Global Compact also announced its twelve new SDG Pioneers —  business leaders who are doing an exceptional job to advance the SDGs through the implementation of the Ten Principles of UN Global Compact on human rights, environment, labor and anti-corruption.
