Are you ready to fly the friendly skies with a happy hour wine list? If the answer is yes, then you might be interested in JetBlue’s latest offering. And that is because JetBlue is giving us a new look at what happy hour in the sky can be.

What does any of this mean? It means that for a limited time, from now until July 31, the airline is offering a limited edition wine list featuring wines from five different Black-owned wineries. It seems like fliers in the Mint Class will have access to these amazing wines that are perfect for just about any wine lover. Whether you like it red or white or maybe a little bubbly, there is a wine for anyone out there who wants to enjoy a glass with their travels.

So which wineries and wines can we expect to see in this very special, curated list of wines? According to the press email we received on behalf of JetBlue,

"The list features unique varietals including a sparkling Sauvignon Blanc by Bodkin; a Provence Rose by Le Fete du Rose, perfectly timed to everyone’s favorite wine season; and a crisp Chardonnay by basketball player Dwyane Wade, just to name a few."

The wineries and wines participating in this sky bound happy hour are:

  • Bodkin Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc
  • Wade Cellars Chenin Blanc
  • La Fete du Rose Provence Rose
  • Vine & Supply Pinot Noir
  • Brendel “Cooper’s Reed” Cabernet

Basically, there is a wine for all of us to enjoy and they are from wineries that some of us may never have heard of or tried in the past. We certainly love what JetBlue is doing here, spotlighting Black-owned wineries and the delicious wines they have to offer.

And according to the airline,

"These five wineries stood out for their unique varieties, all of which pair wonderfully with our delicious fare from Pasquale Jones onboard. This latest effort underscores the airline’s commitment to not only supporting small businesses, but also continuing to diversify JetBlue’s roster of onboard business partners."

Now maybe it is just me, but I can’t help but think maybe a trip with JetBlue is in order just to give these wines a try for myself. Of course, if flying isn’t in the cards for you (or me), then we can always see what we can do to get our hands on these brands for ourselves and maybe create our own wine flight.
