Recently arrived at JN Wine, and the perfect accompaniment to a dreary Winter weekend; the flying solo range from Domaine Gayda is sure to impress. As with all of the Domaine’s wines, they deliver extraordinary value for money, and an interesting story to boot.
The team at Domaine Gayda introduced the Flying Solo collection to celebrate the pioneering aviators of the famous “Aeropostale” who risked all to deliver the first mail from France to Barcelona in 1918 then North Africa, and eventually even South America. These intrepid pilots flew solo from Toulouse, using Domaine Gayda’s Tree of Moscou (L’Arbre de Moscou) as a key visual reference.
