Tuesday, 26 February 2019
Qantas Wine will be showcasing wines from three Kangaroo Island wineries and the offering will be the first national promotion for KI wines.
Recognising the quality of the Island’s food and beverage offering and wanting to share it with its frequent flyers, Qantas will be promoting a mixed six pack of the Island’s finest wines through its online platform Qantas Wine in June 2019.
The wineries featured in the six pack from The Stoke, Dudley and Islander Estate wineries.
Nick Dugmore from The Stoke is "stoked" to be featured in the promotion.
"My wife Rebecca and I started The Stoke a few years ago following travels around the world, we understood the uniqueness of the Island and we are delighted Qantas’ customers will be getting the chance to discover and taste a bit of it as well through our wines and those of the Islander and Dudley Wines," Mr Dugmore said.
Qantas Wine buyer Claudia Lill who previously managed the wine selection for Qantas international and domestic flights and lounges for nearly decade, crafting it into one of the most successful airline wine programs in the world.
"We are always looking to offer excitement, quality, value, interest and discovery to our customers," she said. "Kangaroo Island is a new Australian wine region showing great promise, and we are delighted to be the first to showcase it nationally."
