Wines of The Flower & Garden Festival 2021

EPCOT's Flower & Garden Festival is back from March 3rd through July 5th, 2021. The festival is blooming with beautiful food and beverages across twenty Outdoor Kitchens around the World Showcase. If you are the"here for the wine" type this blog is for you!


There are many beverages, alcoholic and non-alcoholic, at this year's festival. The wines are fewer at Flower & Garden, with an emphasis on beers, cocktails and ciders. Below is a list of all the booths that are offering wines and what those wines are. With each listed booth, I've recommended food pairings. They are separated by savory or sweet, depending on what you are in the mood for. All the food pairing recommendations are found at the same booth as the wine.


Now let's grow! I mean go!
