Also, Valckenberg Madonna Liebfraumilch described as “a harmonious ensemble of rich fruitiness, a delicate sweetness, backed by a mild acidity and a lush seductive bouquet.”

Italy (located at Enoteca Castello) wines include Castello Banfi San Angelo Pinot Grigio, Tuscany IGT described as “an elegant wine of pale-straw color, with an intense, fruity aroma, followed by a clean, rich refreshing taste.”
Also, Rosa Regale, Piedmont DOCG described as “a hint of rose petals and raspberries, delightfully vivacious and festive.”  This is one of my favorite wines!  It is light, very sweet, fizzy and refreshing on a hot day in the parks. 
Rosa Regale from Italy, MY FAVORITE!

France (located at Aux Vins de France or use La Maison du Vin entrance) wines include Georges Duboeuf Pouilly Fuisse, Macon described as “flavors of pear, red apples and citrus are balanced in this classic French expression of Chardonnay from Burgundy.”  I highly recommend enjoying this along with a cheese plate and baguette from Boulangerie Patissiere (the bakery next door to the wine shop in France). The wine pairs perfectly with the rich soft cheeses.
Also, Chateau Tour de Segur – Lussac St. Emilion described as “predominantly blended with Merlot, this full bodied wine displays flavors of black currants, black cherries and generous oak spices.”
Whether you decided to try one wine each trip or tour the world of wines all in one day, the Epcot Wine Walk is a great way for the seasoned wine aficionado or novice to enjoy a relaxing time during a Walt Disney World Vacation.  

CHEERS!

Accessibility: All Wine Walk locations are accessible.  However, the rooms for each pouring counter may be slightly difficult to navigate if there is a crowd.
