The intimate event is a foodie’s dream – a wine expert from the winery and a Disney chef guide guests through the tasting, detailing the notes of each pairing. The following dates currently scheduled to take place from 2-3 p.m.

  • August 22 – San Sebastian Winery
    *This event includes a takeaway bottle of Castillo Red wine in a lighthouse-shaped bottle. Cost per person is $60 to attend.
  • September 26 – Ironstone Vineyard
  • October 17 – Napa Smith (The only brewery in Napa Valley, CA)
  • November 7 – To Be Determined

Cost varies between $25-40 per person (before tax and gratuity) for three wines — or beers, if you are attending the October 17 event — perfectly paired with three small plates.

Beginning August 3, you can reserve your spot by visiting DisneyWorld.com/dine or by calling 407-WDW-DINE.
