Vino Volo created the airport wine bar concept in 2004 and currently operates 18 locations in airports across the US, offering travelers wine tasting flights, wines by the glass, small plates, and a distinctive wine retail selection.
New locations opening this year include outlets outside of the airport, which the company hopes will satisfy customer enthusiasm for the wine flights, small plates, and retail wine selection currently only available in airports.
“Vino Volo’s position as the market leader in the attractive airport segment, along with its proven ability to build and operate profitable locations across the country, provides many compelling near term growth opportunities,” said Mistral managing partner Andrew Heyer.
“We believe that the company is well positioned to be the national wine authority across multiple channels in and out of the airport, offering a differentiated and best-in-class experience to consumers.”
Vino Volo was represented by Partnership Capital Growth.
