Wines Inspired By: runDisney's Virtual Wine & Dine Weekend Villains

Wine & Dine 2020 had arguably the best theme in the race weekend's history - Wickedly Delicious, celebrating Disney Villains. And what a great time it would have been in person, racing through the parks with that ominous theme, the swag at the expo, the character meet & greets! Purple and lime green everywhere. Ah...what could have been (bring this theme back runDisney please!) Let's pour one out for all of the runners who still go out there to virtually run Wine & Dine Weekend, whether 1 race or all 3, themed to the villains of this year's event.


Wine & Dine Virtual 5K - Yzma and Kronk

Inspired by the duo of Yzma & Kronk, these Sauvignon Blancs are far better to drink than the poison for Kuzco, Kuzco’s poison (yes that poison!) The wines celebrating these two villains MUST pair well with spinach puffs. It also must pair well with throwing off Emperor's grooves, so the alcohol (ABV) should be on the lower end of the spectrum. 🦙🛕
