How would you like to learn more about a certain alcholic beverage?  Well at the Beverage Seminars at the 2018 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, adults will be able to pop the cork on a few new skills while you sample select beverages!  Sound like fun — absolutely!

Class or “Glass” in Session

Sample select adult beverages at a 45-minute seminar that puts you in touch with your inner wine, beer or spirit expert. Each day, a seminar will be presented with different types of beverages featuring an expert in that company’s field.  Each seminar leader will share their extensive knowledge about that spirit at these deliciously informative and fun presentations.  Ok, when does class begin?
