Epcot Wine Walk

The Epcot World Showcase Wine Walk is an actual thing, even though I can’t find any mention of it on the Disney World website. For $20 a person, you can get samples of two wines from each of three pavilions – Germany, Italy, and France. What a bargain! Once Rich and I heard about the wine walk, we just had to try it out.

Start at any of the three pavilions listed, go to the wine shop (Weinkeller in Germany, Enoteca Castello in Italy, Aux Vins de France in – you guessed it – France), and pick up your… passport? Ticket? Paper thingy? I don’t know what it’s officially called, but it’s how the Cast Members in each wine shop keep track of where you’ve been (because someone has to).

We started in Germany with two sweet white wines. I adored them.

Next up was Italy, where the red and the white were both quite sweet. These I adored, as well.

Ah, France. A red and a white, both drier than these others on the wine walk. Not heavy, just very nice.

After visiting all three wine shops, we decided to stop in at the Rose & Crown Pub in the UK pavilion for a bite to eat. Rich had finished his French wine, but I still had my red left, so I took it into the pub with me. At the Rose & Crown, we had… oh, that’s a story for another day 🙂

Have you done the Epcot Wine Walk? Which wine was your favorite?

  1. What a deal! You had mentioned about a wine walk previously. We didn’t see any signs about it when we were at Epcot and then it slipped our minds. But what a deal for $20 and what fun. Next time!!!

    Thanks, Heather.

      It was so much fun! Disney doesn’t really seem to advertise it, though. You’d never know it was there unless you happened upon one of the signs in a wine shop.

  2. We are going on a getaway to Door County in May. It’s a resort area in northeastern Wisconsin and have a self-made wine tour planned to at least six wineries at the latest count. It should be fun.

    There is always a “next time” for Disney.

      Your wine tour sounds like such fun! We’ve done a few tours of the Finger Lakes area wineries (that’s our neck of the woods). It’s a great way to try new things and find new favorites. And yes, it’s good to always have another Disney trip to look forward to 🙂

    How big are the drinks? Are they shareable?

    • HFBrainerd says:

      Each pour is about 2 ounces. The two of us opted to each get our own, but could easily have shared them. We would have each had a few sips of all of the wines, enough to have a nice taste.

  4. Oh, I have never heard of this! We will need to try it next time. Thanks for sharing!
