Emirates Wins Big at Business Traveller Cellars in the Sky Awards


Emirates’ stellar wine programme was recognized at the Business Traveller Cellars in the Sky 2019 Awards held in London on Monday, 24 February, 2020.

The airline picked up multiple awards including 2 Gold awards, 2 Silver awards and a Bronze award for its carefully curated wine lists. The awards include:

Gold

  • Business Class Fortified - Dow's Colheita Port, 1992, Douro Valley, Portugal

  • First Class Fortified - Vin de Constance Klein Constantia 2013, Constantia, Cape Town, South Africa

Silver

  • First Class Red - Les Forts de Latour, 2005, Pauillac, Bordeaux, France

Bronze

  • First Class Fizz - Dom Pérignon Vintage 2002 – Plénitude 2, Champagne, France

The winning wines represent Emirates’ varied offering which come from 12 of the main wine producing regions including France, Australia, South Africa and Portugal.

The Emirates wine strategy is to buy exceptional wines at the earliest opportunity and let them mature to allow them to express their full potential before serving them on board its aircraft.

Emirates’ wine cellar, located in France, is the largest of any airline and currently holds 7.4 million bottles of fine wine, some of which will not be ready for serving on board until 2037.

Emirates also recently launched its new set of wines for the Emirates Vintage Collection, a selection of the finest bottles from its cellar in France. These exceptional wines are exclusively served in First Class on selected flights and for a limited period of time.

Over the years, Emirates has served several Dom Pérignon vintages, some made available to Emirates as global airline exclusives. .

The Business Traveller Cellars in the Sky Awards recognize the best wines served in first and business class on board airlines around the world.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
