Calling all wine lovers, you are going to love this! Disney Parks just announced a brand new (and amazing) culinary experience at Disneyland Resort.

Grab your friends and family and raise a glass together at the new Winemaker Dinner Series, which is coming soon to Steakhouse 55 at the Disneyland Resort

In 2020, Steakhouse 55, which is the signature fine dining restaurant in the Disneyland Hotel, will offer guests a one-of-a-kind experience, including multi-course menus which are expertly paired to wine selections, on select dates throughout the year.

But wait there’s more because, during the Winemaker Dinner Series, a visiting vintner will be by your side to help guide you through each and every wine and take you on an incredible journey “from grape to glass”. The vintner will go into detail about the wine, how it was made, and also explain why it was chosen specifically for your meal.

Winemaker Dinner Series will kick off on January 15, 2020 and will feature Wente Vineyards, which is the country’s longest, continuously operated, family-owned winery and was founded in 1883.

Disney Parks Blog describes the first event featuring Wente Vineyards as:

Blending traditional and innovative winemaking practices, the Wente family has drawn from their California estate vineyards in the Livermore Valley and Arroyo Seco, Monterey appellations to create an outstanding portfolio of fine wines. These include chardonnay, merlot, pinot noir and rosé, to name a few, which are currently exported to 75 countries around the globe. Aly Wente, senior brand manager and fifth generation wine grower, will share her family’s passion and stories about each wine.
