Upper class passengers using the Virgin Clubhouse at London’s Heathrow airport will be tempted to taste wines from New York State. Samples from Fingerlakes, Long Island and the Hudson Valley areas will be available for sixty days from June 22nd 2008.
New York State has over 240 wineries most of which are open to tour and taste! And with more than 3 million visitors a year they must polish off a few barrels between them.
The Virgin Clubhouse is said to be the best in the world seeing over 1,000 passengers a day pass through its doors – so there’ll be a few corks popping at Heathrow this summer.
