Some may say these guys have the best job in the county, especially when they find out that every year over four days, the Sommeliers blind taste and review 1,600 Australian wines and Champagne that go onboard domestic and international flights and in the lounges.

Around 250 different wines are chosen from more than 150 different producers.
