Exclusive New Italian Wine to Debut at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival
Two new wines, created exclusively for Disney, will be debuted at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival this year. Made by Placido in the Tuscany region of Italy, and imported by Banfi, the Pinot Grigio & Chianti will be available to sample, as well as purchase by the bottle, in the Enoteca Castello (wine shop) in Italys' pavilion, Epcot.
The wine is called Songo d'Italia, which translates into "Dream of Italy" and pays homage to Italys' easy going lifestyle & noble traditions. The Pinot Grigio is described as light & crisp, with hints of pears and floral tones. The Chianti is described as a drinkable red, with hints of cherry & plums and a touch of spice.
The cost per glass will be $6 and the bottle cost $16.95 and will be available after the festival ends. Eventually you will also see them on the wine menus of some of your favorite Disney restaurants.
