This month, Emirates is launching a new selection of outstanding wines on board its international flights. This year, the airline invested over AED 186 million in wine and champagne.
Emirates has the largest wine cellar of any airline as a result of ongoing and deliberate investments in the onboard experience. The wine is currently housed in specialised facilities in France and numbers about 6 million bottles, some of which won’t be served until 2037.
New fine wines onboard Emirates
Emirates will launch a range of the best white Burgundy wines in the upcoming months, including the esteemed Premier and Grand Crus varieties. Several Bordeaux First Growths, including those from the esteemed estates of Château Mouton Rothschild, Château Margaux, Château Haut-Brion, Château Cheval Blanc, and Château d’Yquem, will also be released by Emirates in the upcoming years. Emirates currently serves 36 different Champagnes and French wines on board its aircraft.
World-class wines for every cabin class
In Economy Class, Emirates offers one red and one white wine, both of exceptionally high quality. Recent additions include ‘AOP’ and ‘Biodynamic’ wines from M. Chapoutier, Domaines Baron de Rothschild, a South African Sauvignon Blanc from sustainability champion, Gabb family and Antinori Santa Cristina red wine.
Emirates offers sparkling vintage wine, premium red wine, and premium white wine in Premium Economy. Emirates divides its wine selections into six regions for Business and First Class passengers: the UK and USA, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Australasia, and Asia. With this strategy, Emirates is able to provide passengers from these regions with wines that closely match their tastes and give them the chance to taste exceptional wines from the area.
