If you like being a trendsetter, make one of your first stops at the Epcot Food & Wine Festival at the Enoteca Castello wine shop in the Italy Pavilion, where they’ll be pouring ($6 a glass) two new exclusive wines for Disney Parks. You also can purchase there by the bottle ($16.95), or at the wine shop in the Festival Welcome Center.

The label is Sogno d’Italia, which translates as “Dream of Italy,” made by Placido in Tuscany and imported by Banfi Vintners.. The light, crisp Pinot Grigio reminds us of pears and flowers. If you prefer a red, sip the drinkable Chianti, with a note of cherries and plums and a hint of spice.

“When we dream of Italy, we dream not only of its noble traditions, but of its appealingly easygoing lifestyle,” said winemaker Paolo Benassi. “These wines embody both of those ideals.” The festival opens Sept. 30 and runs through Nov. 13. If you can’t join us, the wines will still be sold at the Italy shop post-fest. And eventually they’ll be added to wine lists at select Disney restaurants.
