Qatar Airways participates in Chicago wine tasting, culinary event

Middle Easter carrier Qatar Airways said participated in The Seventh Annual CHILL Event presented by LuxeHome and Wine Spectator in Chicago last week.

The international wine and culinary gathering took over The Merchandise Mart with a sold-out crowd of over 3,000 people, the carrier said.

Attendees sampled dishes from 40 top chefs and over 150 premium wines, including those from Qatar Airways´ curated collection, while exploring the home and renovation boutiques on the first floor of the venue.

Prior to the evening´s kickoff, Qatar Airways, recently named The World´s Best Business Class by Skytrax, was the exclusive wine provider for the VIP Tasting Reception in the GE Monogram Showroom.

During the event, Qatar Airways raffled off a package that included a bottle of each of its showcased wines. For those unable to attend last evening´s event, the airline is also offering the chance to win one of their expertly chosen vintages by registering online.

Qatar Airways said it currently has orders worth over USD 50bn for more than 250 aircraft, including Boeing (NYSE: BA) 787s, 777s, Airbus A350s, A380s and A320 family of aircraft.
