To help Canadians explore in new ways, and in celebration of International Wine Day on May 25th, Emirates is inviting travellers to experience the flavours of the world at home.

Emirates is well known for its esteemed sommeliers and extensive on-board wine selection. In fact, Emirates’ wine cellar, located in France, is the largest of any airline boasting a storage capacity of 7.4 million bottles of wine, some of which won’t be ready for serving until 2037.
