St. Helena, Napa Valley, CA (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
FLASQ Wines, the first domestic wine packaged in 100% recyclable and shatterproof aluminum half-bottles, is now available at Vino Volo airport locations across the United States. FLASQ gives travelers a quality, portable wine with a resealable screw cap to enjoy during a layover in a Vino Volo lounge or while in-flight.
Vino Volo offers exceptional customer service within a comfortable post-security sanctuary combining a wine lounge, restaurant and boutique wine shop. Leather seats, soft music and dimmed lights set the mood for air travelers to relax between flights, where they enjoy hand-selected wines from around the world, whether through tastings or sold by the glass and bottle. Locations also offer elegant small plates and gourmet entrees including local artisan cheeses, dry-cured meats and smoked salmon.
FLASQ’s California wines may be purchased at these Vino Volo boutique shops:
“Today, trending shows more and more travelers prefer the convenience of carry-on luggage, and as a result, airport retail is growing,” said Jennifer Schreiber, partner and vice president of sales and marketing. “Vino Volo and FLASQ bring an exceptional wine experience to an airport venue that travelers haven’t encountered before. We are delighted to partner with a retailer with such a passion for wine, and appreciate their advocacy of FLASQ.”
Traci Garrett, assistant manager at the Seattle shop, has witnessed the popularity of FLASQ first-hand. “We have regular customers scheduling flights to accommodate time for a lounge visit, and FLASQ has become exponentially more popular because of its portability and great value,” said Garrett.
FLASQ features Chardonnay and Merlot blends from California’s prominent Monterey and San Luis Obispo counties, and the new Cuvée Blanc calls Sonoma’s Alexander Valley home. The quick-chilling, 375ml half-bottles generally sell for $10-$12 each at Vino Volo locations.
