Sharon and I are not wine snobs. We do, however, enjoy a nice glass of wine with dinner. We’ve visited wineries in Napa, Sonoma, Willamette, OR and even in Tasmania during our Adventures by Disney trip to Australia. Our journeys have also brought us to winemaking facilities in Hawaii, Texas and Florida that eventually led me to develop the mantra of “Just because you can grow grapes and make wine, doesn’t mean you should.”
That’s the feeling I had when this offer hit my email box today:

Walt Disney World’s International Food & Wine Festival has been held at Epcot since 1995. Starting as a relatively small event nearly 25 years ago, it’s now grown into a 10-week affair that includes exclusive food and beverage-related events, culinary classes, the Eat To The Beat concert series, special souvenirs galore and, of course, dozens of booths around World Showcase, highlighting samples of food and drink from around the world. It’s become a very popular event over time and one of the highlights of the year for hundreds of thousands of Disney and food fans.
However in the midst of all this, there’s another food and wine event held on Disney property that many less people know about…

When you go to certain locations, especially when you’re on vacation, it’s a given that you’ll do some specific things. If you’re at Disney theme park, you have a list of attractions that you HAVE to go on. If you’re visiting Hollywood, I’m sure you’ll look for the big HOLLYWOOD sign up in the hills. If you visit New York City, you’ll want to go to Times Square or eat a slice of pizza. And if you go to Key West, you’re going to want to see a sunset.
There are plenty of ways to see a Key West sunset for free…Mallory Square is a good example. But sometimes you want to do something that’s one step further; maybe a little more quiet and/or romantic, or includes some wine and munchies, or is just a little different, or…

Joe and I have been to a lot of museums in our travels and we’ve done a lot of the biggies. The Museum of Natural History. The Louvre. The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The British Museum. The Museum of Natural History. Bits and pieces of the Smithsonian. We have tentative plans to visit the Field Museum when we go to Chicago this fall. Joe’s been to the 9/11 Memorial & Museum in NY and Museum of Popular Culture in Seattle. We’re both big fans of museums of science and industry in any big (or not so big) city we visit. We’ve even done some off-the-beaten track museums like the Neon Museum in Las Vegas, the Ghibli Museum in Japan and Alexander Hamilton’s home in Harlem, which has been turned into a museum. But this one we just found out about just sounds fascinating!
La Cité du Vin (City of Wine) is a museum & theme park dedicated to WINE! It’s located in Bordeaux, which make perfect sense, when you consider that Bordeaux is the wine capital of the world. And just like the science museums of your past (or maybe your present), they focus on an immersive, sensorial approach. And I’m ready to buy tickets right now!
