Transcons Are About to Get Tastier with Upgraded Wines on Delta
Itís time to raise your glass to Delta, as the airline is getting ready to pour out some new in-flight drinking options. Unfortunately fancy up in the air cocktails or craft beer kegs arenít making an appearance to the beverage cart, but there will be plenty of new wine options for those who are fans of the reds and the whites.
The Delta Winemaker Series is set to hit the skies on September 1, as Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson has done her best to select some more premium vintages than you're typically used to on a plane. The focus will be on California wines this time, so donít hop aboard expecting some French bubbly. Expect plenty of options from Robert Mondavi and Inception, as youíll be able to pair everything from a Chardonnay to a Pinot Noir with your in-flight meal.
Youíll need to be flying up front in Deltaís BusinessElite cabin, so those stuck in the back wonít be invited to the in-flight fanc(ier) wine party. Also, the new options are only coming to transcontinental flights between spots like Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York for now, so your connection between Atlanta and Pensacola isnít going to receive the same type of service.
