Abeau­ti­ful spring evening saw more than 80 read­ers join us for a com­pli­men­tary wine-tast­ing class with wine ex­pert Charles Metcalfe. The event, held at his­toric Trin­ity House close to Tower Hill in the City of Lon­don, was kindly spon­sored by Re­gal Air­port Ho­tel Hong Kong (re­gal­ho­, whose vice-pres­i­dent of de­vel­op­ment and area gen­eral man­ager, John Gi­rard, pro­vided the wel­come to the as­sem­bled guests.

A drinks re­cep­tion in the Court room al­lowed an ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the views across to the Tower of Lon­don. Guests then made their way through to the Li­brary for the tast­ing of nine wines – all win­ners at our Cel­lars in the Sky 2016 air­line wine awards – ac­com­pa­nied by de­li­cious food in­clud­ing freshly shucked oys­ters, char­cu­terie and cheese boards.

There was also a prize draw, with one lucky reader tak­ing home three Gold Medal bot­tles served in first class, and an­other win­ning three busi­ness class Gold Medal wines. Our sin­cere thanks to ev­ery­one who joined us, and to the air­lines that sup­plied bot­tles of their award-win­ning wines. For the full list of win­ners, visit busi­nesstrav­ cel­lars-in-the-sky.
