Got Wine? Join us in March for a Wine Walk!
Many of you may have heard of or even attempted the unofficial “Drink Around the World” in the Epcot World Showcase. But did you know that Epcot, does have an official, although smaller scale, activity called the Wine Walk? The Wine Walk is available year round and allows you to experience some of the wine offerings in France, Italy and Germany. The cost of this activity is $20 and includes six two(ish) ounce pours, two per country. You can purchase your passport at any of the three countries, which includes a listing of the wine offerings
You get a stamp in your passport for each pour and you are able to enjoy these at your leisure as you explore the world showcase area. You get two pours per country and may have them both at once or save them and come back for round two. I enjoy having a pour and pairing it with some of the samplings available in the pavilions.
The locations of the wine walk are as follows: Weinkeller in Germany, Enoteca Castello in Italy and Les Vins de France in France. You can start at any of these locations and go in any order you choose.
One of my favorite food pairings is located at the Weinkeller. They offer a lovely Cheese plate of three tasting portions with amazing pretzel bread crostini and other accompaniments. This is approximately $5 and is not included with the wine walk fee but makes a really nice addition.
What I love most about the wine walk, is that you choose what you want to pair with your pours, if anything, and how you utilize your pours. Whether it’s a pastry or dessert from France, gelato in Italy or a bratwurst in Germany, it’s your call and all at your pace.
Come and join myself, Ramon Rodriguez of Theme Park Concierge and Krista Joy of Disneyways on March 21, 2015 for an epic wine walk event in the World Showcase. Enjoy some wine, the Flower and Garden Festival and some great company. Hope to see you there!!!
