Us

This is Wine:Thirty Flight, our first class wine and travel blog. WTF began with Meghan Barrett Welch and Andrew Welch, wine drinkers and aviation geeks who met in the Coast Guard, live next to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, and who think of Washington, New York, and Boston as one big city. We've since been joined by Kathleen Jennings and Elizabeth Harple.

We share many similar tastes in wine, but first among them is the belief that the people you meet and places you go are at least as much fun as the wine you drink while doing it. Sometimes it's worth booking a longer layover so that you can find a new wine bar. Wine is both fun and serious, sophisticated yet easy, the door to a world far beyond the glass. Together we'll find the best Tempranillo from Spain, Pinot Noir from Massachusetts (yes), Albariño in the main concourse at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport, and the perfect house wine of which you won't feel bad opening a second bottle when friends come over.
