Welcome to our menu celebrating sustainable winemakers!

It may be disconcerting to sit on board a plane, reading about our commitment to sustainability. However, Icelandair does care deeply about the effect it has on the environment, and we have made a commitment to reach net zero emissions by 2050. In addition, we've set a medium-term target to reduce our carbon emissions by 50% per operational ton kilometer (OTK) by 2030 compared to 2019 levels.

Our commitment to economic, social, and environmental sustainability doesn't stop at minimizing flight emissions. We approach the matter in a holistic manner and with a 360° view. And in our approach, we leave no stone unturned: we also take into consideration the sustainability commitment of our partners and suppliers of goods and services on board each flight.

With that in mind, and with a continued emphasis on quality, we've searched the world for winegrowers who share our passion for sustainability.

White wine from Cantina Pizzolato, Italy

With over 58 hectares of organically grown grapes, Cantina Pizzolato has become a beacon throughout Italy for the success that environmentally conscious viticulture can achieve. This conscious approach to winemaking is paired with the Pizzolato family's extensive history in winemaking, with over five generations being involved in viticulture.

By adopting and utilizing new processes, both to process the grape and bottling, Cantina Pizzolato has distinguished itself from its competitors. Using green energy (thus allowing for their carbon footprint to be greatly reduced) and micro-irrigation for their vineyards has resulted in the vineyard becoming a leading figure among Italian wineries looking to adapt to a more contemporary 21st-century approach to winemaking as well as business.

Pizzolato Pinot Grigio DOC Venezia

Pinot grigio from Veneto region, Italy

Nose: Fruity-scented wine with evident hints of toasted almonds, dry hay, and walnut husk.

Palate: Velvety, soft wine, with balanced acidity.

Pairs with: Fish, shellfish, sushi

White wine from Emiliana Organic Vineyards, Chile

From the company's first experience with organic production in 1998, Emiliana has been a global pioneer of organic and biodynamic wine production.

For Emiliana, being organic means taking care of nature, protecting the environment, and valuing the people that make it possible for their wines to arrive in the glasses of the consumers. Healthy soils are fundamental for healthy vineyards, which in return allows nature to express itself in your glass.

Today Emiliana is the world’s largest organic wine producer and 100% of its properties are managed and certified organic.

Novas Gran Reserva Chardonnay

Chardonnay from Casablanca valley, Chile

Nose: Aromas of white and tropical fruits. Touches of nuts and hazelnuts.

Palate: A touch of lightly toasted oak and ripe stone fruits. Excellent volume on the palate. Great balance of wood and refreshing acidity. Good lengthy finish.

Pairs with: Cheese, fish, poultry, pasta, shellfish

Red wine from Domaine Bousquet, Argentina

A 1990 vacation in Argentina was all it took. For third-generation winemaker Jean Bousquet, it was love at first sight. The object of the Frenchman’s desire: the Gualtallary Valley, a scenic, remote, arid terrain high in the Tupungato district of the Uco Valley in Argentina’s Mendoza region.

Domaine Bousquet is dedicated to farming organically while improving the land’s biodiversity. It's their belief that the healthier the vineyards, the better the fruit – and of course, the wine.

Domaine Bousquet is today Argentina’s largest producer of organic wines.

Reserve Organic Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet sauvignon, malbec from Salta region, Argentina

Nose: Strawberries and floral aromas with spicy and mineral notes.

Palate: Refined stylish red, showing scented oak, fine savory tannins, and bright acidity. Elegant with a pleasant finish.

Pairs with: Lamb, beef, veal

Red wine from Azienda Agricola Rivetto, Italy

Winemaker Enrico Rivetto is considered by his neighbors and competitors to be, well, a bit eccentric. While the prices of wine from the region have risen considerably over the past few years, Enrico is actively tearing up several hectares of his vineyards by the roots, just to plant nut trees, herbs and wildflowers. And then acquiring more hectares of vineyards just to tear up by the roots to create pasture for grazing animals.

But then again, there's a clear vision to his winemaking and a strong commitment to his philosophy. Becoming the first biodynamic certified domain in Barolo Enrico speaks of creating a balanced ecosystem, moving beyond biodynamic to biodiversity. The priority is a healthy ecosystem. The trees will fight soil erosion, the herbs and wildflowers will attract predators that will help fight vineyard pests, and the grazing animals will provide natural fertilizers. Absolutely no chemicals will ever be used.

“Organic and biodynamic practices are the means, not the result. I don't know the map, but I know the direction: clear, well defined, precise. I'm here to bring my small world to a resurrection, with manic lucidity.”

What Enrico Rivetto ultimately believes is that the proudest expressions of his wines will emerge in its ultimate complexity when his vineyards are in harmony with the nature.

Barbera d'Alba DOC Zio Nando

Barbera from Piedmont region, Italy

Nose: Aromas of black cherries, blackberry, sweet spices, and tobacco.

Palate: A full-bodied barbera full of black cherry fruits and spices on the palate. A rich wine with good acidity and tannins. Long and persistent finish.

Pairs with: Pasta, veal, pork, game, poultry

Welcome to our menu celebrating New World wines, produced outside the traditional winegrowing areas of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

New World wine regions are usually hotter, more humid, and with richer soils. New World winemakers are often more experimental with their grape varieties and methods. These factors typically lead to a fuller body, and more fruit-forward flavors.

,

You may have heard people refer to ‘Old World’ and ‘New World’ in the context of wines.

‘Old World’ refers to traditional winemaking countries in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, most notably France, Italy, Germany, Spain and Portugal. Most of the wine-producing countries have a long-standing heritage of winemaking that dates back more than a millennium, with rich traditions and strict regulations.

The ‘New World’ consists of all other winemaking countries – such as Argentina, Australia, Canada, Chile, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, South Africa and the USA. They’re not riddled with the same regulations and traditions, so they can (and do) experiment more with different grape varieties and styles.

,

The term ‘New World wine’ is perhaps a bit of a misnomer. It's believed that Spanish settlers in the Americas are responsible for the first attempts to grow vines in Hispaniola in 1494. From there, wine-growing spread throughout the Americas and later to other parts of the world.

In 1976, a British wine merchant introduced Californian wines to France by organizing a blind tasting event for local connoisseurs. To everyone’s great surprise, bottles from California won first place in each category. It’s sometimes stated that the 'Judgment of Paris' marks the beginning of the rise of New World wines. At the bare minimum, the event showed that the Old World wine countries didn’t hold a monopoly on producing world-class wines.

,Welcome to our menu celebrating female winemakers. We're immensely proud of Iceland's trailblazing role in fostering women's empowerment, and our goal is to honor that spirit of equality and share it with the world.,

Winemaker Nadia Barnard is one of many women showing they are a force to be reckoned with in South Africa’s winemaking industry.

After spending five years as an assistant winemaker at Waterkloof Wines since its inception, Nadia graduated as a winemaker in 2013.

She aspired to become a winemaker since high school; she studied a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture specializing in Viticulture and Oenology from the University of Stellenbosch to pursue her dream.

After university, Nadia gained extensive experience as a burgeoning winemaker through an internship at Vergelegen Estate and a stint at Flagstone Winery. She continued to hone her winemaking skills internationally, working in South Australia, New Zealand, and France.

Nadia attributes her high-quality wine to “meticulous care and guidance” in her biodynamic farming procedure, which utilizes natural winemaking.

Maria graduated as a chemical engineer at the Chemical Institute of Sarrià (University of Barcelona) and worked as a consultant for some years. It was during that time that Joan, now her husband, introduced her to the magical world of wine. It was love at first sight that brought about a change in Maria’s professional career and led her to start studying enology.

Marta was born in Vilanova i la Geltrú in the rainy month of December. She spent her childhood with her grandparents and great-grandmother, who had a small vineyard. She never tired of cycling around it. The family also had a small cellar in the basement of their house with a press, some 800-liter barrels, and two cement tanks – which quickly became the perfect place to play.

Maria and Marta married brothers who were the third generation of a winemaking family. They were working in what would be their first harvest, when both decided to study oenology at the University of Tarragona, and later joined the Parés Baltà team as the lead winemakers. Their primary challenge since then has been to combine tradition with innovation.

,

Welcome to our menu celebrating wine destinations. Iceland isn't known for producing wine, but we love to drink it. Happily for us, many of our network destinations are close to wineries. Try delicious wines from destinations we fly to, such as Frankfurt, Paris, Milan, and Alicante.

,

Frankfurt stands apart from other German cities. Often referred to as ‘Mainhattan’, it's a high-powered finance and business hub, home to headquarters of the European Central Bank and one of the world's largest stock exchanges.

There are many layers to the city. The Alstadt (Old town) has quaint medieval buildings, taverns, plentiful museums, and lively nightlife due to the city's large student population.

But let's not forget about the wine. Close to Frankfurt are some of Germany’s best wine regions. It takes 1½ hours to drive to Mosel Valley.

,

There's no city in the world like Paris, known for the highest standards of sophistication and culture. It's renowned for cozy coffeehouses, extravagant avenues, and art in abundance.

The most challenging part about visiting Paris is deciding where to start your journey: with the gorgeous view from the Eiffel Tower, the stained glass of Notre Dame cathedral, seeing the Mona Lisa, or simply cruising along the Seine River?

In the unlikely event you grow tired of Paris, remember that France is the home of the world's most famous wine country. Some of the globe's most prestigious wine regions are close to Paris. You can reach Éperney, the capital of Champagne, in just an hour by train. Bourgogne and Alsace take two hours. Our wine journey heads north of Paris. In just over an hour you reach Loire Valley, where the wine growers have mastered the cultivation of sauvignon blanc.
