The Weinkeller in the Germany pavilion at Epcot

One of our favorite places to visit in the World Showcase is the Germany pavilion. Not only can you get a great beer and pretzels, but great wine as well. Germany has been producing wines since 100 B.C. so it has a rich history of great winemaking. Riesling is the most popular and well known German wine but there are many others. At Weinkeller, which means wine cellar, you can try a glass of several German wines or purchase by the bottle to take home and enjoy.

Most of the year it’s pretty easy to grab a glass and table here. However, during the Epcot Food and Wine Festival this place is packed with people and there is always a line.

    I would love to purchase some Christmas Wine for the holidays but am not going to be in Florida before then. Is there a way to purchase the wine over the phone or via an internet site and have it shipped to Pennsylvania?

    • Hi Thomas! Do you remember the look of the label or maybe what letter the name of the wine started with? I couldn’t even give you a guess without knowing anything else about it. If you can give me a little bit more information I might be able to take a guess next time I’m in the Germany Pavilion at Epcot.
