Master sommelier Stuckey to lead American wine program
American Airlines announced last week master sommelier Bobby Stuckey would be its new wine consultant.
Stuckey will select premium wines for the airline’s Admirals Club lounges, Flagship Lounges, Flagship First Dining and in flight.
He will also guide the development and expansion of American's wine program. Desmond Echavarrie, master sommelier, will continue to support lounge offerings under the guidance of Stuckey.
Stuckey was a sommelier at The Little Nell restaurant in Aspen, Colorado before joining world-renowned chef Thomas Keller at the French Laundry in Yountville, California, in 2000. During his time there, the French Laundry received The James Beard Foundation's awards for "Outstanding Restaurant Service" and "Outstanding Wine Service."
Stuckey is the owner of Italian restaurant, Frasca Food and Wine in Boulder, Colorado and serves as its wine director.
