Wine bar opens at Charlotte Douglas

Fliers have a new option to wine and dine at Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Beaudevin. The new store is part of the airport and vendors' push to overhaul retail options at Charlotte Douglas.

Update: There are some local wine options, as several people have asked me about (see below). But they might not have spelled all the city names correctly...

Beaudevin is operated by HMS Host, the airport's food concession manager. HMS Host administers more than 50 airport concessions (concession map).

“We created Beaudevin as a place where travelers can experience fine wine and delicious cuisine while still
feeling relaxed, in an informal, European-inspired atmosphere,” said Stephen Douglas, Vice President,
Business Development HMSHost. “Reminiscent of a ch√Ęteau cellar, Beaudevin puts beauty back into
traveling. We are very excited to partner with CLT to make the Charlotte traveler’s day better.”

The wine bar will feature more than 30 reds, whites and sparkling wines, as well as small, tapas-style plates and open sandwiches.

Doubt these are NC wines. Douglas is like a mall compared to most airports which showcase the local flavor.

There is already a North Carolina wine bar at the airport as well as a BBQ outlet, a Bojangles, a Bad Daddy's and a cafe run by the people who own Something Classic. As someone who flies over over 100,000 mile a year in and out of Charlotte Douglas, I think we have better local representation than most other airports of our size.

Agree with Anon@11:19am. CLT offers decent eating options, but wish they'd offer more healthy choices. Minneapolis has one of the better airports when it comes to local flavor and healthy options.

I think the Yadkin Valley Wine Bar at the airport is now closed.

I fly as much as anyone and in my opinion CLT offers far more than any other airport it's size, with both local and chain options. Try DFW if you want to find very litte options.
