Walt Disney World loves wine! That’s evident with its annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival every fall. But it’s not the only wine event the Orlando theme park puts on throughout the year. In fact, Disney celebrates wine all year long with monthly events, weekend getaways and more. Here are the 3 must-do Disney wine events:
2019 Disney Family of Wines Weekend at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Kick off your wine adventures with the 2019 Disney Family of Wine Weekend at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. From May 17-19, enjoy a two-night stay at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and three days of wine. The event features carefully crafted wines from vineyards all over, each of which has its own connection to Disney’s past, present and future. Guests can also enjoy more than just how the wine tastes with special curated workshops, meetings with the winemakers and meals.
The Wonderful World of Wine at Yachtsman Steakhouse at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort
Sail your way through some of the world’s most renowned wine-growing regions at The Wonderful World of Wine at Yachtsman Steakhouse at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. Unlike Disney’s other wine events, The Wonderful World of Wine is a class that takes place every second Wednesday of the month. Sip on samples from vineyards throughout California, Italy, France, Chile, Australia and more. As you sip learn about flavor profiles, winemaking techniques and soil and climate conditions from Advanced Sommelier Kristopher Soto. The class also includes a small tasting plate paired with each wine selection.
Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic Event
Every fall, The Swan and Dolphin hosts the Food and Wine Event Classic. The weekend includes wine samples from around the world and savory culinary artistry. Guests can learn about the wines with the event’s eleven educational seminars including ones that dive deeper into wines, cocktails, beer, pasta-making, cheese pairing and even the fine art of sushi and sake. The Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic Event will be held November 8-9, 2019.
