Wine at the Disneyland Resort: Alfresco Tasting Terrace: Disney Flight of Wines
When Disney's California Adventure opened about 10 years ago it brought with it wine tasting. Definitely a representative adventure associated with many regions of California. Originally sponsored by Robert Mondavi - The wine section of DCA is a great little section of the theme park and has been home to the Food and Wine Festival that was a staple of the park for many years until Carsland went into construction. The Food and Wine Festival may not be returning (even though the one in Epcot is still going strong), but that doesn't mean you can't have a great wine experience in the park.
We had read earlier this summer on the Disney Parks blog that the Alfresco Lounge above the wine tasting area would be serving a unique wine list of Disney related wines.
I love that the menu tells you about each of the wineries and what their Disney connection is. This list features 8 wineries from what they are calling the "Disney Family of Wines: The wineries include:
Fess Paker Winery (Davey Crockett)
Lasseter Family Winery
Gogi (Owned by actor Kurt Russell)
Skywalker Vineyards (Star Wars Wine)
When we went during the Summer we each did a different Flight of wines and then we had to try the Skywalker Star Wars Wine. Which was excellent by the way.
A great touch that all Wine Flights should have is the little Wine Flight info cards that tell you about each of the wines you are tasting that would also serve as a great way to order wines that you like
To accompany the wine flights we had a tasty Aged Cheddar Risotto Bites with roasted garlic aioli and marinara and a flatbread that was also good.
So the next time you are at the parks and want a perfect little getaway from the crowds --definitely check out this little hidden gem.
