Vino Volo will be arriving soon at Jacksonville International (JAX).
The 1,226-square-foot food and wine bar, expected to open early next year will be beyond the Transportation Security Administration passenger screening area in Concourse C.
“Vino Volo is very excited that Jacksonville International Airport will be our first-ever Florida location. We believe that it will be a great addition to the Food & Beverage Program at the Airport,” said Marco Di Bernardo, director of development for Vino Volo. “We look forward to serving Jacksonville passengers a taste of exceptional international, national and regional wines along with a selection of local craft beers, paired with delicious small plates, while they wait for their flight. Travelers will also have the opportunity to purchases wines from our retail store, to carry with them to their final destination or pick up on their return home.”
The restaurant will offer beer and wine tastings, by the glass and by the flight, as well as small plates such as smoked salmon rolls, brie and prosciutto sandwich, cheese and charcuterie plate, truffled penne and cheese, and chickpea and chorizo chili. Customers also will be able to sample and buy product to carry onto their flights.
“We’re excited that our travelers will soon be able to enjoy a different kind of dining experience at JAX airport,” said Michael Stewart, Jacksonville Aviation Authority’s director of external affairs. “Customers will be able to choose from unique wine and food offerings, plus locally sourced craft-brewed beers in a tastefully designed and sophisticated atmosphere.”
