Airlines in the Asia Pacific snapped up all top prizes at the Cellars in the Sky Awards 2019, with Malaysia Airlines taking the Gold medal for Best Overall Cellar.
Australia’s Qantas was awarded Gold in the Best First Class Cellar category, with Hong Kong’s Cathay Pacific awarded Silver, Japan’s All Nippon Airways and Singapore Airlines awarded joint Bronze.
Meanwhile, Malaysia Airlines also won Gold for Best Business Class Cellar, Air New Zealand and Qatar Airways jointly taking Silver, and Ireland’s Aer Lingus taking Bronze.
The annual awards, which recognise the best business and first class wines served by airlines around the world, were presented in London in February by Charles Metcalfe, co-chairman of the International Wine Challenge.
A total of 35 airlines from around the world entered the 2019 Awards. They presented more than 250 bottles of wine to be judged by five renowned judges.
The judges - Sarah Abbott MW, Tim Atkin MW, Peter McCombie MW, journalist and wine writer Kathryn McWhirter and head judge Charles Metcalfe – blind tasted the wines over two days to decide the winners.
The Cellars in the Sky Awards was organised by Business Traveller magazine. It has been running since 1985 and this is the 34th year.
