    Global Traveler, the only ABC-audited magazine for business and luxury travelers, held its ninth annual Wines on the Wing Airline Wine Competition.

    The competition was held May 13 at The Westin New York Grand Central in New York City. Twenty-seven expert judges participated in the blind tasting of airlines’ white, red and sparkling wines. The judges hailed from a wide range of specialties, including sommeliers, wine shop owners and winemakers.

    Airlines are required to submit five different wines — two red wines, two white wines, and one sparkling wine/Champagne — to be eligible for the Best Overall International Business-Class Wines on the Wing award or the Best Overall International First-Class Wines on the Wing award. Awards are also given for Best International Business-Class White, Red and Sparkling wines; Best International First-Class White, Red and Sparkling Wines; Best North American Wines on the Wing; Best North American White, Red and Sparkling wines; and Best Alliance.
