British Airways First Class to Feature Exclusive English Sparkling Wine

British Airways customers will soon be able to enjoy a special sparkling wine from the award-winning Hattingley Valley in Hampshire, England.

BA’s team of wine experts worked with Hattingley Valley’s wine makers to create a 2015 Blanc de Noir that will be exclusively available to customers from 1 July 2019.

Kelly Stevenson, British Airways’ Wine and Beverage Manager, said, “There’s no better, or more British way to toast our centenary year than with an English Sparkling Wine. We’ve loved working with Hattingley Valley to create something really special for our First customers and this will be the first time we have ever served an English Sparkling Blanc de Noirs on board. This blend will excel at altitude as the notes of red apple skins and light red fruits really shine through.”

Founded in 2008, family-owned Hattingley Valley specialises in making premium English Sparkling Wine with distinctively rich flavours. A hallmark of their style is fermenting a small proportion of each year’s wine in oak barrels, creating award- winning wines including the Classic Reserve, Rose and Blanc de Blancs.

Emma Rice, Hattingley Valley’s Director, Head Winemaker and Winemaker of the Year in 2014 and 2016, said, “English Sparkling Wine is now incredibly popular around the world so we’re thrilled to have partnered with British Airways to create an exceptional wine that can be enjoyed on the ground and in the air across their network.”
