Wine program

Our wines are chosen in consultation with Doug Frost, Master Sommelier and Master of Wine. Each year, we sample varietals to complement our global cuisine and satisfy the diverse tastes of our premium travelers. During this process, we seek out selections that are richly flavored to enhance the dining experience. Our wine selections rotate throughout the year. Your flight attendant will inform you of available champagnes and wines.
