Exclusive New Wines to Debut at Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival

Wine lovers will want to visit the Enoteca Castello wine shop in the Italy pavilion during this year’s Epcot Food & Wine Festival, where they can sample two new wines exclusive to the Disney Parks.

For $6 per glass, they’ll be pouring these two new wines from the Sogno d’Ialia label, which means “dream of Italy”. If one (or both ;-)) are to your liking, bottles can be purchased at Enoteca Castello or The Cellar in the Festival Welcome Center for $16.95 each. The wines are made in Tuscany by Placido and imported by Banfi Vinters.

If you like your wine light and crisp with hints of pears and flowers, try the Pinot Grigio. The Chianti has a note of cherries and plums with just a hint of spice that is sure to please red wine aficionados.

If you’ll be visiting the festival between September 30 and November 13, don’t forget to stop and sample these exclusive new wines. And if your vacation dates are after the festival, the wines will be added to the wine lists of select Disney restaurants and also available for purchase at the Italy store in Epcot.

    Can you ever buy Disney wines outside of Disney?

    JoAnn — Me too!

    Bonnie — Great question! My guess would be no, but I’ll have to ask when I get there!

    I would love to have a taste of both! Any chance these will be available at the Disneyand Resort (maybe DCA?) That’s assuming I like them enough to purchase. :)

    Must tries for me. Looks like I will have to leave some suitcase space for a bottle or two.

    Bonnie/AJ–I have found that a number of wines for sale on Disney property (particularly in the Italy pavilion) are generally available off property in the Orlando area. I love the Banfi wines and I look forward to trying these.
