The Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic is all about sampling cuisine from the resort’s chefs and topping it off with wine and beer, but there’s more to the event than just strolling around and indulging. Did you know that you can kick off your evening with a class on wine, beer, spirits, or even appropriate pairings?
This year, The Swan and Dolphin Classic, which runs on October 30, and 31, is offering the following classes:
- Wine Blending
- Italian Wines
- Base to Bubbles
- Beer Please
- Modern Mixology
- Tequila University
- The Fine Art of Sushi and Sake
- The Cheese Course
- Pasta Making
Each class offers an in-depth look at the subject matter, as well as plenty of tastings. Depending on the topic, you’ll also be participating hands-on in making a delicious dish, blending wine, or mixing up some drinks. The instructors are all experts like sommeliers and chefs. Click the video accompanying this article to see the class on Italian wines, where the tastes just kept flowing.
While it makes a nice day to take a class first, then stay for the Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic, that’s not required; you can take a class without actually attending the main event. The classes take place at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort, between Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. For details on each class, visit the official website.
