World’s First Airport Winery

You may have a had beer at an airport brew pub in Boston at the Cisco Brewery or at O’Hare’s Goose Island Brewing Company but have you ever had a glass of wine produced at the airport? Chances are the answer is no. If you get a chance to travel to Cape Town International, which I recently wrote an airport review on, you can experience the worlds first airport winery. The Winery will produce exclusively Merlot and will be pouring glasses by the end of 2015. It is part of CPT’s passenger “ambiance project” to promote the best of what Cape Town has to offer.

Airport Review: Lanseria and OR Tambo International in South Africa

Last week I penned a blog about Mango Airlines, a low-cost airline that flies to five destinations in South Africa and also to Zanzibar. The service was good and overall the airline was more than adequate. But we at tripchi are about the airports and our how we experience them. I was lucky enough to visit three airports over our week-long trip. One was Cape Town International, previously blog about here, the other two were Lanseria Airport and Africa’s biggest airport OR Tambo International. Both airportsĀ serve the Johannesburg/Pretoria region and hopefully soon they will be onĀ the tripchi airport app. So without further a due let’s get down to the nitty-gritty.
