PaxEx: British Airways Launches New English Sparkling Wine
To further elevate the inflight passenger experience of its customers, British Airways is celebrating its centenary year in style with the launch of its own English Sparkling Wine.
Customers will be able to enjoy the bubbles from the award-winning Hattingley Valley from July 1 and raise a toast to the airline’s milestone birthday.
British Airways’ team of wine experts worked with Hattingley Valley’s crew of wine makers to create a 2015 Blanc de Noir that will be exclusively available to customers from this summer.
The wine is a Pinot Noir dominant blend that works perfectly at altitude. The grapes were hand-harvested and gently pressed, before being bottled at Hattingley Valley’s winery in Hampshire.
The premium sparkling wine will be available exclusively in British Airways’ First cabin as well as the airline’s flagship lounge, The Concorde Room in Heathrow Terminal 5, from July 1.
You can get a very first taste of the new sparkling at the winery’s Mad Hattingley Tea Party pop-up at TASTE of London in Regents Park from June 19 to June 23.
