Well, the picture may well have given the answer away… but Delta has been named the international business class winner in Global Traveler’s annual Wine on the Wings competition.

Global Traveler selected a panel of more than 20 wine professionals to oversee this year’s competition. The judges conducted a blind taste test of wines submitted by airlines around the world, giving each wine a score based on its taste and quality. When the scores were tallied, Delta rose to the top as the highest scorer among international business class selections.

“This award speaks to our efforts to continuously elevate the onboard dining experience for our customers,” said Lisa Bauer, Vice President — On-Board Services at Delta. “From recognizable brands for the occasional wine drinker to surprising selections from small, artisanal wineries for the most discerning of wine enthusiasts – our robust wine program has something to offer for everyone.”

Delta’s wine offerings are carefully curated by Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson. Her wine selection is a year-round process that includes in-flight tastings to make sure the wines taste just as good at cruising altitude as they do on the ground.

Recent upgrades to the Delta One in-flight experience include new chef-designed Delta One menus curated by Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo for flights from LAX, refreshed TUMI amenity kits with Kiehl’s products, and an Alessi-designed collection of serviceware.
