CHARLOTTE, N.C. – How much would you pay for a glass of wine between flights when you’re at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport?
How about $42?
On Tuesday, wine bar Beaudevin (translation:”the beauty of wine”) opened in the main concourse of the Airport.
Airport Director Jerry Orr said it’s a great day to open yet another business at Charlotte Douglas. In fact, Orr said he expects the new upscale wine bar to generate $3 million in new revenue per year.
“We sell a lot of food. Forty million people travel through here every year and a lot of them are hungry,” Orr said.
NewsChannel 36 took a quick peek at the menu and found the food to be in the $10 to $25 range and the high-end wines are selling for $42 for a nine-ounce glass.
The cheapest wine is $7 for a three-ounce glass.
Beaudevin is owned and operated by HMSHost, which employees 900 associates in nearly 40 restaurants inside Charlotte Douglas.
