Polaris Business Class passengers on United Airlines can now enjoy a glass of Whispering Angel Rosé from Château d’Esclans.
Whispering Angel Rosé Wine Now Available On United Airlines
I’m far afield from the wine scene (coffee is my preferred snobbery), but rosé wine is quickly growing in popularity in the United States. Château d’Esclans, which bottles and markets a blend it calls Whispering Angel Rosé, claims that its sales are up 30% between 2021 and 2022.
Recognizing that increased interest and in an attempt to diversity its wine offerings, United is adding Whispering Angel Rosé to its wine list, effective immediately. The popular wine will be available on all flights in Polaris Business Class, which is United’s longhaul business class product.
Sacha Lichine, owner of Château d’Esclans, underscored the “glamour” of its wine:
“Whispering Angel was instrumental in sparking the Rosé Revolution and has become synonymous with a glamorous lifestyle, so being able to share this exceptional wine with those flying United Polaris as they embark on their travels is exciting. We’re proud to be able to reach new consumers and offer them a taste of the magic of Provence.”
I’d rather emphasize how great it tastes rather than its association with a glamorous lifestyle, but what do I know?
Aaron McMillan, United Managing Director of Hospitality and Planning, empathized the popularity of the wine:
“Whispering Angel is the top-selling French wine in the U.S. so we know it’s something travelers will be thrilled to see onboard just in time for spring break travel.”
United Airlines is adding a popular rosé wine to its onboard beverage selection in Polaris Business Class.
I’m limiting my alcohol this year in an attempt to continue to sculpt my body and stave off jet lag, but I will give it a try next time. For research purposes…
Will you try Whispering Angel Rosé on your next United flight in Polaris?
