I noticed that NZ has a printed wine guide booklet in business class - current edition dated January to June 2006. Funny I hadn't come across it before.

Anyway, looks to be very useful for those who appreciate a tipple but unfamiliar with NZ wine scene (and remember wines onboard NZ are all NZ).

Covers intro, run down of the various regions and main varieties, lists the wines NZ has selected (for business class) with tasting notes, some information on the wineries featured.

Quite a classy booklet and a great idea.

Dear Kiwi Flyer,

A wine guide is a great idea. I wish QF would do this. It would provide interesting reading as well as contribute to the enjoyment of enjoying wine in transit.

I'll make sure I read up before my next NZ business class flight, so I know what to ask for ;) I already have a few favourites.

That said, I'm sure they don't carry every single wine on every flight.

Oddly, NZ stopped producing wine lists a couple of years ago (at the same time they changed how they did menus).
 
Vinomofo is the best wine deals site on the planet. Good wines, real people and epic deals, without all the bowties and bs.

Show-stopping wines on Air New Zealand
New Zealand wines - and Air New Zealand's business-class wine list, in particular - seem to be just what the discerning air traveller wants.
In the Cellars in the Sky Awards, announced last week, Air NZ scooped the prizes for the best business-class cellar, the most original business-class cellar, and the best business-class red, making it the most successful airline overall.
New Zealand wines also collected several awards for other airlines.
The Cellars in the Sky Awards are run by the British-based Business Traveller magazine in conjunction with Wine and Spirit magazine and the International Wine Challenge competition.
This year was the 21st time the awards have been run and they attracted a record 35 entries, including virtually all the world's top airlines.
