All Nippon Airways new wine selection

All Nippon Airways updates its selection of wines to 62 new wines from 15 countries

All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan’s largest and 5-Star airline will be updating its selection of wines to incorporate 62 new wines from 15 different countries.

ANA’s selection of wines received the prestigious “Wines on the Wing 2019” from the U.S. Global Traveler magazine, where it was ranked 2nd overall in First Class, 4th overall in Business Class, with six of its wines being commended for their outstanding quality. The great care that went into curating this international wine list, demonstrating the airline’s commitment to offering a refined dining experience to its passengers.

The new wine choices were selected through a comprehensive process that lasted more than half a year, with input from Olivier Poussier (Best Sommelier in the World 2000) and Conrad Tokyo Executive Sommelier Satoru Mori, who is widely regarded as one of the leading voices in wine. The elite team of tasting professionals started with approximately 2000 potential wines before narrowing the selection down to 62 based on their ability to appeal to ANA passengers and pair with in-flight meals.

“ANA has prioritized the culinary elements of the passenger experience, and the dedicated sommeliers who worked to craft our selection of vintages are complementing the similar effort shown by ANA’s partner chefs,” said Hideki Kunugi, Executive Vice President of ANA. “With favorites from Europe, Australia, North America and Japan, we are confident that all passengers will be able to find the ideal wine that perfectly appeals to their preferences. ANA will continue working to improve all aspects of the flight experience, working to perfect every detail and this revised wine selection is just one part of these comprehensive efforts.”

First Class passengers will be able to enjoy a selection of premium wines and champagnes from all over the world, such as the Bordeaux Medoc 2nd Grand Cru Classé, Chateau Cos d’Estournel, high-end Japanese wine and the unparalleled Champagne Krug Grande Cuvée.

International Business Class offerings have also been expanded, with Port wine being added to the menu. Another exciting addition to the Business Class selection is Skuttlebutt Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, a white wine from the suburbs of Perth – ANA’s latest Australian destination.

ANA will serve the second pressing of highly popular wine under “THE CONNOISSEURS” to Premium Economy and Economy Class international passengers. Created in collaboration with master sommelier Olivier Poussier, this wine has consistently impressed passengers since its debut.

These wine choices demonstrate how ANA is dedicated to finding the best products in the world and integrating them into the flight experience to improve comfort and convenience for all passengers.
