We’ve long enjoyed the Alfresco Tasting Terrace at Disney California Adventure for a place to enjoy small plates and California wines. You’ll find the secluded spot on the second floor of the Park’s Wine Country Trattoria.

But now, we have even more reason to visit, as the rustic venue has introduced a revamped menu to complement their brand new line up of wines.

Alfresco has introduced the “Disney Family of Wines”, a collection of California wines all bearing some connection with the Disney brand. While some of the wines are featured at other Disney restaurants, Alfresco is the only spot where you can sample selections from all eight of the wineries featured in the collection. They include:

  • Fess Parker Winery
  • MacMurray Ranch
  • Silverado Vineyards
  • Lasseter Family Winery
  • Gogi (owned by actor Kurt Russell)
  • Frank Family Vineyards
  • Chappellet Winery
  • Skywalker Vineyards

Wines are available by the glass, or you can purchase a full bottle. If you’d like some variety, flights are available as well.

The menu continues to feature small plates with a Mediterranean influence.

Charcuterie and Cheese Board

The popular Fritto Misto Plate, which includes lightly battered Calamari, Mussels, Green Beans, and Artichokes with a Pepperoncini Aïoli, continues to be available. It’s joined by a lineup of new dishes including:

  • Aged Cheddar-Risotto Bites with Roasted Garlic-Herb Aïoli and Marinara
  • Classic Bruschetta
  • Charcuterie and Cheese, Featuring Gorgonzola and Fontina Cheese, Prosciutto Di Parma, Chorizo, Olives, Marinated Mushrooms, and Walnuts
  • Grilled Shrimp with Chorizo
  • Beef Tenderloin Sliders with Horseradish and Caramelized Onion Aïoli
  • Roasted Duck Rillettes with Crostini, Orange Marmalade and Castelvetrano Olives

Sounds good, eh?

It’s a great spot to unwind in the evening as you take in the Park scenery around you with some delicious lighter fare! And since you don’t need an advance dining reservation, it’s a good option for last minute noshing.

    They also server some really good local and CA beers. In fact, this place is never crowed, with only a few people dotted throughout the day. Im really happy for new menu too…their previous Charcuterie and Cheese was…I lunchable in a to-go box.

    Stumbled onto this place the day after it had reopened with the new focus. Three of us had wine flights, and we spilt a few apps: the risotto bites, charcuterie plate, and a flatbread that was a special for the night. We loved the presentation of the wine flights (someone walked us through the history of each wine presented to us and their connection to Disney), and the food were the best small plates we’ve had at Disneyland. Delicious and excellent quality. It was sparsely populated at dinner time, and we could hear and see the parade (if we craned our necks). Great experience for adults, and I plan on returning again.

    My husband and I just tried the lounge for the first time and are looking forward to sharing with friends. We watched the sunset while we enjoyed the risotto bites and the sliders…both were excellent. It was peaceful and a wonderful view of the park. I’m excited to try the wine flights on our next visit.

    Wine Country Trattoria is my favorite place to eat/drink in DCA. I feel like it’s kind of a hidden gem. Went there for the first time a little over a year ago. My girlfriend and I stumbled upon it, and we were thrilled. The wine was delicious, and the dinner phenomenal. Looking forward to getting to experience the new area. I frequent Disney World, but don’t get to Disneyland as much as I’d like to. Live in NY, and am planning my next trip to Cali Disney next August for the D23 Expo. We’re ALSO planning our first trip to Napa Valley the same week! Cannot wait to FINALLY visit wine country! :)

    Had been curious about this place since The Golden Vine closed years ago (still, SO sad!) and observed that it looked like a place Disney just wasn’t sure what they wanted to do with. Sometimes there would be private cast member meetings up there, for example. Finally went up there for the first time about a year ago and was amazed by the ambiance. It’s so open, airy, peaceful ~ abutting the beautiful little forest behind ~ and has a clear view of much of the park. Since I’m not much for sea food, I’m pleased to see they’ve elaborated beyond the fritto misto. There had been more on the menu, but none of it really was as substantial as that, if I recall correctly. Last time I was there, though, it was getting a bit crowded: word is probably getting out among guests and cast members may be recommending it now.
