If you’re flying from New York to the west coast–say to San Francisco, Los Angeles or Seattle–you’ll now be able to enjoy some New York wine during the flight. Assuming you fly American Airlines that is.

I haven’t been able to dig up specific vintages yet, but they’ll be serving a merlot from Bedell Cellars here on Long Island and also a riesling from Salmon Run, which is Dr. Konstantin Frank’s second label.

This is a very cool development and I’m glad to see that they chose well-regarded producers. There are a lot of wineries in NY with better PR/marketing, but much lesser juice. Kudos to American for picking a couple that market and make wine well.
