The airport bar is on my list of things to do when I fly. Inevitably I'm rushing to the airport, rushing through security, rushing to the gate only so that I'll have 5 or 10 more minutes at the bar. That isn't true, but perhaps now it will be.
Vino Volo is a chain of wine bars popping up in airports. On their website they claim to be geared towards discovery and learning as well. They have tasting charts and also an online storefront where you can purchase the wines they carry. (I wonder how long it will be before there is a Sky Mall for wine lovers -- I hope soon!) This seems the perfect thing to add to a hectic travel schedule, that is if they can manage to control the hubbub that seems to be so pervasive in airport terminals.
I know the next time I'm winging through JFK I'll skip the greasy food and try some airport wine.

I think it's a winning idea, though I was personally disappointed several weeks ago when I found out that Vino Volo was located in the American terminal, while I was flying Delta and was therefore forced to drink beer (well, maybe not forced, but I had two hours to kill before my flight).
