The Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at London’s Heathrow airport now offers New York wines, including Millbrook Cabernet Franc from the mid-Hudson Valley wine country.
The New York wines were brought to London airport private clubhouse thanks to the I Love NY program of Empire State Development, which partnered with Virgin Atlantic.
A selection of wines will be offered for the next two months, including a Wolffer Chardonnay and Peconic Bay Cabernet Sauvignon from Long Island, Dr. Frank Semi-Dry Riesling and Heron Hill Rosé of Cabernet Franc from the Finger Lakes, as well as wine from Millbrook Vineyards and Winery in Dutchess County.
