Culture Trip

Summer Redefined: Private Jet Itineraries

For those serious about great wine and good food

Who said you have to go straight there? Why not make a journey of getting there and stop off for a special moment somewhere to truly enjoy the benefits of flying privately with us? The Modern Concierge recommends stopping in Bordeaux for lunch en-route to a few days away in a luxury bolthole in Tuscany. Once you’ve landed in Bordeaux, enjoy a privately guided tour of Chateau Mouton Rothschild with special access to the cellars and vaults. Afterwards, lunch is organized nearby before heading back to the aircraft for the two hour private flight to Grossetto in Tuscany, where the chauffeur awaits to whisk you to the hills.

Luxury in Tuscany

Clients can of course choose from any of the wonderful luxury Tuscan hotels, but we like the seclusion and privacy offered by La Bandita country house near Pienza in the heartbreakingly beautiful Val d’Orcia region of southern Tuscany; close to world leading vineyards and with many exceptional boutique artisanal Tuscan producers to discover. The creation of senior music executive, John Voigtmann, the dream Tuscan farmhouse is set on a hill with views from the infinity pool to remember forever.

The 8 bedroom seriously stylish country house sleeps 16 and costs around $3,370 -$3,900 per night with 3 night minimum stays for weekend. This includes breakfast prepared daily and the service of a private chef. Your time there can be as organized or as free as you wish. Stay around the house the entire trip, or let The Modern Concierge guide your adventures around this beautiful part of the world.

If you are not a wine expert but are curious to find out more about Italian wines, we can create immersive and memorable moments for you to really enjoy learning about Italian wines and wine making.

Feast in an ancient Tuscan church

Exclusively for guests of La Bandita, we are able to offer an unforgettable wine & private dining experience in the ancient family church of a nearby Medieval stronghold where the hills were reclaimed from nature to vineyard. These slopes were once long ago submerged below sea level, and the mineral enriched soil creates the uniquely propertied grape crop that has become the acclaimed Sesti wines of Castello di Argiano.

As you sip Brunello for dinner you can be amused by the quirky and creative link between Chateau Mouton Rothschild and Sesti. Both have a tradition of creative commemorative labels as a special marque for each year. The dinner will be a sumptuous traditional Tuscan feast of wonderful food and Sesti wine pairings in the most atmospheric of settings in this ancient stone church, it’s unexpectedly giant candelabra and romantic candle light reflecting off the frescoes.

Then, if you wish, we can really take you to church, with an extra specially arranged live performance by local traditional folk singers Il Cardellini and their unique song of Tuscan stories from a world that almost no longer exists except through these performances.

Stay for as many nights as you like, and we will include as many vineyard trips and Tuscan experiences as desired.  In Val d’Orcia the beauty is endless and possibilities include visiting the historic house and gardens of La Foce, Michelin starred dinners in tiny medieval hamlets, plus the opportunity of visiting artisanal producers keeping the crafts and traditions alive in this storied, celebrated part of Italy.

Turning to Sotheby’s Wine experts, The Modern Concierge will create unique access and special experiences at the most exclusive and sought after vineyards around the world. For those serious about wine, enjoy a pre-travel consultation with a Sotheby’s Wine senior expert to discuss possible houses of interest before The Modern Concierge then creates the full itinerary of arrangements and experiences with travel by private jet and wine by Sotheby’s.
