Emirates for the Best Wines

Every year, over 160 different wines, champagnes and ports, sourced from the best vineyards in 11 countries, are served onboard Emirates to passengers. The airline recently flew in a special cargo of some of the finest wines served onboard the Dublin to Dubai route, together with a 2005 Dom Perignon, for Emirates’ first-ever wine tasting event in Dublin.
