Post this show to your favorite social network

Ken Chase is a busy guy! As the wine consultant for American Airlines, it’s his responsibility to source the wine and plan the wine lists for all of American’s 6,000 flights per day. Fortunately, he’s got the contacts and the experience to make it all sound easy.

Ken is a classically trained wine maker and viticulturist with an international reputation. He started studying wine in Bordeaux France, Germany and Italy, while living in Europe for eight years. Ken selects fine wines for various routes paying close attention to menu parings, as well as the ethnic, cultural, seasonal and stylistic differences of each destination. He pursued a degree in enology and viticulture studies at University of Melbourne followed by continuing studies at UC Davis.

Join us as we talk with Ken about what it takes to put together a wine program of this magnitude.
