Vino Volo: in the airport!

24 11 2009

Matt and I usually get to the airport with tons of time to spare, so on Friday, before we boarded our plane to Pittsburgh, we stopped at Vino Volo for a quick drink and bite to eat. This wine bar chain currently has locations in about 10 airports in the U.S. and it’s a welcome change to the overwhelming fast food options you usually get.

Impressive, albeit small, wine list with some fun flight options. (Heh, get it?)

These are cute and come with each glass.  Not your basic, run-of-the-mill wine guide with standard terms, but still user-friendly.

Matt’s artisan cured meats (small size for $8) were yummy but really just made him more hungry for a real dinner.

My brie & prosciutto sandwich (small size for $6) was surprisingly tasty. The brie was slightly melted and warm and the fig spread was ooey and gooey (in a good way).

It’s nice to have Vino Volo in the Philly airport, because when we were early in Pittsburgh coming home, we sat in a Friday’s. Not as nice.

There is one of these in the Baltimore airport and I have always been intrigued by it. When we fly out to Phoenix in January I am going to give it a try!

This is one of our favorite airport wine bars. Great pictures btw… makes me want to fly to the closest vino volo and enjoy a ‘flight’ and some of those delicious small plates. Cheers!

Just hit a Vino Volo in Dulles, also had the cured meats and found them very yummy, especially that mustard.
