We have 2 international Masters of Wine on our selection panel to carefully handpick vintages from the world’s best producers for Qatar Airways’ customers. Our committee meet two times per year in Frankfurt for blind tasting, they spend 3 days tasting at least 300 wines, taking into account differing taste profiles and how the palate is affected at higher altitudes. Their mandate is to simply find the very best wines that can be enjoyed in the sky.

We believe in adding flavor to your journey; therefore, change our wine list every 3 months.
