Whew! Back from another wonderful day at the Food and Wine Festival. I’ve got some great photos of the Festival Center for you! (For those who were asking, the Festival poster is $25.)
2009 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival Center
You can check in with the Information Booth to make sure you know where you’re going and when seminars take place.
Wonders Theater (called “Authentic Tastes”) is where several of the seminars, such as Authors Without Borders, take place.
Visit the Wonders Bar for some samples (not free…)
You can experience Seasons of the Vine, a film describing the lifecycle of a vintage in California. This runs continuously every 10 minutes.
Head over to Tasteful Chapters for an array (a BIG array) of cookery books. This is where you can grab some of the books by authors being featured in the Authors Without Borders seminar series (and don’t forget to have them signed!) There’s also a little cafe with pastries and coffee.
The Chef’s Showcase is the section of the Center where Food and Wine demonstrations are done. Don’t forget that Food and Wine Pairings — the ones that were REALLY pricey — are done in actual restaurants.
The Vineyard is the presentation area where wine tastings take place. I don’t have a great photo of it here, but the entrance is the area directly in the middle of this photo — under the series of archways.
Finally, we come to The Cellar, which is where you can purchase wines mentioned throughout the Festival. There are also designated times for bottle signings (usually immediately after a wine presentation has been concluded).
