Rosé drinkers will soon have an option when they fly domestic first-class on United Airlines.

Starting July 1, the carrier will begin “testing” rosé wine in the first-class cabin on its domestic flights out of its hub airports, according to a memo to flight attendants viewed by The Points Guy

“This is part of a two-month test to see if rosé is popular with our customers and if we should add it to our wine offerings in the future,” the June 26 memo said. “During the test period, instead of boarding two bottles of white wine, we’ll board one bottle of the Three Thieves Rosé and one bottle of white wine.”

United says it will not make changes to the amount of red wine offered on its flights.

The test coincides perfectly with the summer travel season, so United travelers should keep an eye out for something pink on the wine list.
