My wife and I have become quite the avid wine enthusiasts and we like to sample new offerings wherever we go. Whether that’s a winery, a new restaurant, or an airplane, we want to try it and see how it compares with the rest. With our love of travel, sampling wines falls naturally. We’ve been to vineyards in Napa, Sonoma, Texas, Washington, Spain, and more. It doesn’t matter how you get to the vineyards, one thing is always involved: travel.
What do you drink though when you are traveling? Our first choice would be wine, but we find the experience can vary greatly on the airlines. Some do really well while others only provide the worst of the mass-produced wines. While, serving wine on airlines has certain logistical difficulties, there are some great wines out there even at the back of the plane.
This upcoming series of articles will feature the best and the worst of wines that you can find on domestic and International flights. Whether you are looking for your next Merlot or Chardonnay in the skies, we’ll tell you where to find it. Have you experienced a great wine at 30,000 feet? Tell us where in the comments. Are there wines we should avoid in economy class? Tell us where!
Stay tuned for our series where we review wine available on long haul flights!
