Judges at a leading international wine-tasting competition have raised their glasses to oneworld as the best airline alliance for the wines served in-flight by its member airlines for the seventh year in a row.

The Cellars in the Sky Awards, now in its 30th year, were recently presented at a ceremony in London, following blind tastings by a panel of four leading experts of hundreds of wines served on longhaul flights by 35 airlines from around the world.

It means oneworld holds both trophies presented to mark the quality of the wines served in-flight by its member airlines, after retaining also the Global Traveler Wines on the Wing trophy late last year.

oneworld’s member airlines also flew high in the Cellars in the Sky 2015 awards, taking three gold medals, eight silver medals, six bronzes and three “highly commended” in the 13 airline categories.

The three gold medallists among oneworld member airlines were: British Airways for Best First Class White, for its Domaine d’Ardhuy Corton Charlemagne 2009, from Burgundy, France; Qatar Airways for Best First Class Fortified/Dessert, for its Château d’Yquem 2008 Sauternes, from Bordeaux, France; Cathay Pacific for Best Presented First Class Wine List.
