Just Discovered Vino Volo a Rocking Wine Bar
Vino Volo and how attractive it looked for an airport winebar. I found my gate to note everything was on schedule and figured what better way to prepare for 9 hours on a plane! Ha!
My waiter told me the concept is new but already in 19 U.S. Airports. Thanks to WiFi and iPhones I've attached a couple of pics and a link to the company's site above. But this place rocks.
The menu inlcuded three sets of eight different type wines along with a "Taste of all Three" option. I started with an Andrieux and Fils Provence Rose. It was silky and smooth with a wonderful pomegranite flavor. A nice glass of Rose at an airport for $10? Not bad!! If we were doing the 100-point thing, the Rose' was a strong 90 points.
The Burgundy could have used a slight chill but was a very nice glass. It had nice cherry and you picked up a hint of oak. It was a bit spicy and really had nice second level characteristics. Not cheap at $15 a glass but worth it to numb the airport experience.
They also offer some very nice small bites, small plates and sandwhiches. You can also buy wine by the bottle. It's a great concept! I'll definitely be looking for Vino Volo on future trips. I'm impressed.
