WDW Wine Flight Wednesday: Mickey Bottle Stopper Set Giveaway

You may not be aware that the Walt Disney Resort Signature Restaurants feature exquisite Wine Lists fit for even the most distinguished Enophiles.  As a wine bar owner myself, I understand the importance of wine lists and how the offerings can make or break a meal. 

As part of a new idea, every Wednesday, I will be writing a Disney Wine-Related post as part of my series "Wine Flight Wednesday." On Wednesdays, you can expect wine reviews, recommendations, wine photos, featured Disney Wine Lists, wine-related giveaways, and much more!

Today I'm kicking off the first week with a review of Iron Horse Fairy Tale Cuvee and a giveaway! One lucky DGTG reader will win an elegant decorative glass Mickey Wine Stopper and Bottle Opener Set!



From my own knowledge, Iron Horse Vineyards is located in the Sonoma region of Northern California.  Iron Horse produces several varietals, but the label is best known for its Sparkling Wines.

Iron Horse Vineyards has created a Cuvee, or special batch, of sparkling wine known as Fairy Tale Cuvee which is exclusively distributed to Disney and sold only on Disney properties.

Me with Mama of All Trades at Disney Social Media Moms
 Iron Horse's Fairy Tale Cuvee can be found by the bottle on nearly every Disney Wine List, in almost every Resort Market, and on Private Dining menus at an approximate retail of $50 and by the glass in limited locations for about $13.00.

Fairy Tale Cuvee is a Non-Vintage (NV) California Sparkling Wine which is basically a Champagne, but can't politically be called so since it is not from the Champagne region of France.  This bubbly is on the dry side with a touch of sweetness, but not too much.  Perfect for my taste.  Pairs well with just about anything in my Champagne-loving opinion, but is especially yummy with a Artisinal Cheese Plate, Sushi, and various desserts.

I have heard through the grapevine (pun intended) that the Iron Horse Fairy Tale Cuvee is similar if not identical to Iron Horse's Wedding Cuvee which is available on the retail market at prices ranging from $25 - $35, but something about the name makes it all worth it to me: Fairy Tale Cuvee while living a Fairytale!

Nothing beats standing on the porch of Narcoossee's watching Wishes across the Seven Seas Lagoon with a glass of Iron Horse Fairy Tale Cuvee in hand!

You know I have to try and win :-) I follow in Google friend connect.

Do I have to pick just one favorite? I really enjoy Pacific Rim Riesling right now, but my long standing "go to" wine that I can get just about anywhere is Beringer White Zin

My absolute favorite wine is the 2005 Cakebread Merlot. It is absolutely delicious. Expensive but worth every. single. penny. Sure, not an everyday wine but definitely a special occasion wine.

My favorite everyday wine is Castle Rock Pinot Noir or Chte. St. Michelle Cab. Sauv.

Try 'em all if you get the chance!

Cozyflier said...

wow, those are beautiful and would fit my house beautifully! I LOVE the blue in them! My favorite wine is Lindeman's Bin 90 Moscato. I like Sweet wine and this is the first one I have found that I can drink without mixing it with sprite!

I love to try new wines and every year I attend wine seminars at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival and attending some of the local wine tasting here in Nashville. I've found some amazing wines and find it hard to pick a favorite so I'm going to mention a wine that I think is amazing for the price. It's Frontera's Carmenere, a Concho y Toro wine. This red wine has the aromas of plum, dark cherries and chocolate. Great to drink by itself or with chicken, pork or vegtetables.

I don't have a favorite. I think I need these Mickey stoppers so that I can go out and buy more wine to try. :)

Unknown said...

I follow GFC :) And my favorite is Rosa Regale.. Yup, discovered it in EPCOT years ago!

Tricia from Return to Disney said...

Love the wine flight wednesday concept! Because let's face it, we all need a nice glass of wine by Wednesday :)

My favorite wine...tough choice. I'm a red girl. Deep burgundy in the winter, lighter merlot in spring and summer. When I do venture into the whites, I like a nice oaky chardonnay.

My hubby's restaurant offers Chateau St. Jean Chardonnay by the glass; it has become my favorite :D (practice makes perfect??)

Bird said...

My favorite wine of the moment is Huber's Blackberry Wine.

You know I follow via GFC- I just can't get enough!

The Coupon Goddess said...

Narrow it down to one favorite? That's a tough one! If I had to choose I guess I'd say a any super Tuscan would do just fine.

I'm a follower!!! OK, so don't laugh, but recently I've discovered "Lucky Duck" brand wine. It's like, $4 at Wal-mart. I know I know, but it's actually really GOOD! And the labels are so cute, with a different "duck" depending on the country the wine is from!

Unknown said...

I love the Meeker Handprint Merlot. Had it for the first time at Citrico's!

I am not much a wine drinker but am always open to trying new ones. I usually go for sweeter wines so i tend to order Riesling mainly.

mrs.erika said...

I am now following you! My favorite wine is Martini and Rossi's Asti, which is a sparkling wine! Thanks!

The Travel Mom said...

Villa Maria, Sauvignon Blanc! This gem can act as your house white wine, as it tastes terrific with everything from Cheddar cheese and crackers to fish.

I'm a Disney fanatic and I just love your blog! Follow you on Twitter :)
