Vino Volo Brings Wine Country to Jacksonville International Airport

April 24, 2014 – Airport Wine Bar Operator Opens First Location in Florida

Vino Volo has arrived in Northeast Florida with the opening of its newest location at the Jacksonville International Airport (JAX), the company’s first in the State of Florida.  Located near Gate C1, Vino Volo offers guests the opportunity to taste hand-selected wines from around the world by the glass, in tasting flights, or by the bottle to either take home or have shipped.  The food menu offers small plates to pair with wines, such as smoked salmon rolls and a brie and prosciutto sandwich.  A selection of local craft beers will also be available to bring the flavor of Jacksonville to Vino Volo.

"Our goal is to offer Jacksonville passengers a relaxing, comfortable environment where they can experience wine country and enjoy exceptional wines while waiting for their flight" said Doug Tomlinson, Founder and CEO of Vino Volo. "Discovering unique, often hard-to-find wines is our passion, and we look forward to introducing our guests to great global and local wine regions."

Vino Volo (derived from “wine flight” in Italian) is a trusted wine authority that combines a cozy wine lounge, restaurant, tasting bar and boutique wine shop under one roof.  Vino Volo owns and operates 35 locations at 23 airports across North America and two city stores in Bethesda, MD, and Tysons Corner, VA. Founded in 2005, Vino Volo revolutionizes how people experience wine by making the tasting experience approachable and educational. Vino Volo has won 25 Airport Revenue News awards, including the "Food Operator with the Highest Regard for Customer Service" seven years in a row.

“The Vino Volo experience is one passengers will enjoy when traveling through Jacksonville, and is a welcome complement to our current in-terminal dining options,” Jacksonville Aviation Authority Executive Director/CEO Steve Grossman said.  “It’s also exciting that JAX is home to the first Vino Volo location in the State of Florida.” The Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) is proud to welcome Vino Volo’s innovative wine bar concept.
