ANA’s Premium Wine Selection

ANA's current wine selection was put together by staff involved with on-board services, cabin attendants, and external advisor sommeliers.
ANA brings you this exclusive selection with confidence. Savor the delicious marriage between these wines and cuisine.

Around 2,800 brands of wine from 18 countries were entered into the first round of selections for this lineup. Wines that passed an initial screening then went on to be marked at blind tastings in the final selection, and the entire selection process took around half a year. Wines that scored highly at the blind tastings are served on board. This lineup strikes an exquisite balance between the bold individuality of each wine, and features brands from a variety of wine-producing regions including Latin America, Oceania, South Africa in addition to European classics.

Tasters at the Wine Selection

When choosing the tasters for our premium wine selection, we try to match the real-life composition of passengers in an ANA cabin. Together with certified sommeliers, we mix in wine novices and persons of all ages, keeping the gender ratio close to even. 30 people participated in the tastings, from members of "THE CONNOISSEURS" such as ultimate wine masters Olivier Poussier (Best Sommelier in the World 2000) and Satoru Mori (Executive Sommelier, Conrad Tokyo), to cabin attendants with sommelier qualifications, chefs in charge of in-flight meals, and ANA service planning staff.

    • Champagne

    • France

    Champagne Duval-Leroy Brut Réserve (Champagne, France)

    Produced by a family-run Champagne house established in 1859 that has received rave reviews from wine critics for the consistently high quality of their wines, this Champagne offers aromas of quince jelly and orange zest, accompanied by flavors of grapefruit juice, pear, and toasty hazelnuts.
    Subdued acidity melds with delicate bitterness in a fine, creamy mousse to create a well-balanced wine with a subtle, lingering finish of brioche.
    Pinot Noir/Pinot Meunier/Chardonnay

    • Champagne

    • France

    Champagne Castelnau Cuvée Brut Réserve (Champagne, France)

    This wine from Champagne Castelnau is lovingly crafted to fully reflect the terroir of the vast vineyards covering 900 hectares of the region.
    An initial aroma of white flowers is gradually joined by notes of biscuits and nuts, adding complexity to the wine. A rich and rounded acidity combined with a lively fizz with mineral notes lingers nicely on the finish. Reserve wines are blended to enhance their maturity and complexity.
    Chardonnay/Pinot Meunier/Pinot Noir

    • Red

    • United States

    Main Street Winery Cabernet Sauvignon (California, U.S.A.)

    Aromas of black cherry and plum compote mingle with notes of tree sap and licorice, making this wine more thick and dense. With concentrated fruit sweetness framed with robust tannins, this wine perfectly melds fruit flavors with alcoholic burn.
    Cabernet Sauvignon

    • White

    • France

    Mâcon-Lugny Saint-Pierre (Mâconnais, Burgundy, France)

    A Chardonnay crafted by Bouchard Père et Fils, a domaine established in 1731 in the village of Lugny located between the Côte Chalonnaise and Beaujolais. Initial aromas of Japanese kabosu citrus and lime laced with the sweet flavor of cotton candy give way to fresh, vibrant notes of white peach in syrup and freshly squeezed fruit juice.
    The wine's brisk, refreshing acidity and alcohol leave a crisp finish.
