Sipping on a crisp white or a fruity red can evoke a host of memories, transporting you straight back to the time and place you first tasted it. Whether it was a post-piste Merlot in Italy, a Provence rosé paired with cheese in the south of France, or a Pinot Grigio cracked open on the beach while backpacking across Australia – reminiscing over a bottle of vino is a great way to relive nostalgic trips.
That’s the ethos behind The Wine Flyer – bringing worldly wines to your doorstep. The wine retailer launched last year with a hand-picked edit of wines from across the globe, inspiring you to revisit the taste of past travels.
The Wine Flyer also offers you a great way to discover new horizons. Explore the corners of the world from your sofa, with far-flung flavours from South Africa, America and Chile. Or sample something a little more avant-garde, hailing from lesser-known wine regions such as Georgia, where Saperavi grapes are buried underground in egg-shaped clay casks for months on end; or China, where futuristic wineries are blossoming in the hopes of establishing the Far East as the next emerging wine scene.
You can buy wonderful wines online using your card or choose to pay with Avios – British Airways’ reward currency – if you're a member of the British Airways Executive Club. If you're not already a member, the club is free to join and anyone can sign up.
Save and spend Avios while you shop
When shopping with The Wine Flyer, you can collect five Avios for every pound you spend. Build your balance by booking flights, holidays, hotel stays or renting a car with British Airways. Choosing seats, adding baggage, booking parking or upgrading your cabin are all great ways to enhance your earnings.
You can even capitalise on your online shopping habit by purchasing through the British Airways portal – collecting Avios when you buy anything and everything from 1,500 brands including Apple, M&S, John Lewis & Partners, Argos and ASOS. Spend hard-earned Avios on flights to your next dream destination, upgrading to plush first-class seats or on unforgettable experiences. You can also spend Avios on your favourite tipples from The Wine Flyer – and if you do, you could win one million Avios.

There’s a million different ways you could spend your travel prize, but here’s a taster of what you could get with one million Avios.
You could fly a family of four to America and back in Club World for 720,000 Avios, then jet off on a European city break with your favourite travel buddy for 40,000 Avios. And why not toast your win with some champagne? You could get 10 cases of the Premium Champagne Selection trio – that’s 30 bottles of fizz in total – for the remaining 240,000 Avios.
