Soar above the Central Coast wine region and land at Wrath Winery during this 2-hour helicopter and wine tour from Watsonville. In between two 15-minute flights, you’ll explore the vineyards and barrel room at Wrath, where you’re greeted on arrival by vintners who produce many varietals, some with sustainable methods. Sample some of the fine wines, if you wish, and see Monterey Bay, the Santa Lucia Highlands and the Salinas Valley from above!
Your helicopter flight departs from Watsonville. Once you’re buckled in for the approximate 15-minute flight, lift off and head about 25 miles (40 km) inland as you travel over one the world's finest wine growing locations before landing at Wrath Winery.
In the air, admire views of Monterey Bay, the fertile Salinas Valley, the Santa Lucia Mountains and one the world's finest wine regions. Hear live commentary about the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA (American Viticultural Area), a premier cool-climate district for growing grapes.
You’re treated like a VIP as the helicopter lands at Wrath, where the staff greets you and acquaints you with the winery. Roam the Estate San Saba Vineyard on your own, and ask for a guided tour of the barrel room, where you’ll learn about Wrath’s site-specific varietals including pinot noir, chardonnay, syrah and sauvignon blanc.
In the tasting room, sip small-production wines and discover aromatics and flavors that reflect the unique terroir. You can also learn about the certified sustainable methods used, such as indigenous yeast and minimal filtration. Admire magnificent views of the Santa Lucia Highlands and, if you’d like, head to the sunny terrace to enjoy a bottle of Wrath wine (tasting fees and any bottle purchases are at your own expense).
After about an hour on the ground, re-board the helicopter for the scenic flight back to the airport. Enjoy additional sightseeing and narration from above with your newfound appreciation for this stunning wine region.
