ANA announces new Wine and Sake line up with award-winning drink menu

Renewed the wine line up with 54 new wines and two new sakes to its menu
All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan’s largest 5-Star airline for six consecutive years, has renewed the wine line up and added new Japanese sakes to its in-flight menu selection. ANA’s new selections will enhance its award-winning wine menu and continue showcasing ANA’s attention to detail when providing passengers with the highest quality of travel experience.

“ANA is honored to curate one of the finest airline wine selections in the world,” said Yutaka Ito, Executive Vice President of ANA. “Our wide selection of fine wines meets and surpasses our customers’ needs and complement our in-flight meal options. Our goal is to make ANA the best cellar in the skies.”  

The journey to the new wine selection began August 2017 when 30 experts from around the world reviewed approximately 2,800 wines from 18 different countries in a blind taste test. Two sommeliers, who joined ANA’s connoisseur program last year, Olivier Poussier, named the Best Sommelier in the World in 2000, and Satoru Mori, the Executive Sommelier of Conrad Tokyo participated in the selection process. They were joined by ANA chefs, staff, and flight attendants with sommelier qualifications.  

At the blind taste testing, 54 (28 in-flight/ 26 lounge) wines were eventually selected from a variety of regions, including Europe, South America, Oceania, and South Africa. ANA’s own original blended wines will also be offered on ANA international First Class, Premium Economy, and Economy Class. Furthermore, it will also start providing champagne on Japan domestic Premium Class.
