Flying High With Wines

Where else can you be asked for your wine preference at 4am in the morning or for breakfast and not be judged an alcoholic? Where else but on international flights. Wi-Not’s next stop was the training centre of India’s leading domestic and international flight carrier. As a part of the trainings of their executive class section and lounge crew, Wi-Not conducted a wine training session for them where the wines were sponsored by Mumbai-based wine importer, Wine Park. Over a three-hour training, Sommelier Gurjit Singh BARRY discussed topics like definition and classification of wines, how to taste a wine, differences between New and Old World wines, storage and service basics, food and wine pairing principles, reading wine labels and…whew…finally, tasted five wines. The event went well and the wines were thoroughly appreciated.
