Seasons of the Vine: An Introduction to Wine: Disney style
Here is the best version I could find of the old Seasons of the Vine film that used to run at Disney's California Adventure until a couple of years ago when it was replaced by Blue Sky Cellar. It was the main attraction at the Mondavi Winery section that also featured wine tasting of Mondavi wines at the time that DCA opened. Mondavi is no longer the sponsor but you can still get out of the sun and stop by for Wine tastings there.
This 8 minute film was a great place to relax and get out of the sun and learn about the process of wine making from grape on the vine to wine in your glass with the soothing narration of Jeremy Irons. It was one of my first introductions to learning more about wine.
Over the next couple of months we will do a series of blogs covering the Golden Vine Winery area in Disney's California Adventure including the Food and Wine Festival that began in 2006 and ran through 2010.....(It was cancelled for 2011 and 2012 due to the massive construction going on in the park) but we hope that it returns again in 2013. It was a great festival that grew a little bit every year and had a wide array of free Food and Wine seminars as well as special ticketed events that were a blast and a great learning experience.
