British Airways Adds First English Sparkling White Wine to First Class

British Airways has introduced the first English sparkling white wine to its First Class menu, offering its premium customers another wine option to enjoy in the sky.

Joining Laurent-Perrier Grande Siècle and Jacquart Mosaique Rose NV on the airline’s Champagne and Sparkling Wine menu, the smooth and full-bodied Vintage Blanc de Blancs, which comes from the West Sussex-based winery Bolney Wine Estate, is available until September.

The new addition to the airline’s celebrated wine list not only works well as an aperitif, but also complements dishes served in First this month, such as the Loch Fyne Kinglas smoked salmon with tartar sauce, watercress panna cotta and Oscietra caviar, as well as the fresh seasonal salad with optional blue cheese dressing.

Last year British Airways’ First customers consumed more than 160,000 bottles of champagne; 133,000 bottles of red wine; and 150,000 bottles of white wine on board flights.
