If you are in the mood for a glass of wine but you don’t want to sit down for a table service meal, Look for Les Vin De France in Epcot.
France is one of the leading wine-producing countries in the world. At Les Vin De France, an assortment of wine and champagne is offered by the glass. Beaujolais, Cote du Rhone, Cabernet, Merlot, Pouilly-Fuisse and Chardonnay are some of the wines available for tasting.
The storefront resembles a turn of the century wine boutique. The interior looks like a countryside wine shop. Bottles line the shelves and are displayed in windows. Gingham table-cloth covered tables display everything related to wine from linens, aprons, kitchen utensils, soaps, cookware, bottle toppers and openers to chocolates and cookies.
French beer and specialty drinks are also available. Most offerings are under $10. Since the wine and price list is always subject to change and Les Vin De France does not have a link to an online menu, the best choice is to go in and explore for yourself.
Samantha Brown of Travel Channel chose France for her favorite drink at Epcot-The Grand Marnier Orange Slush. Who doesn’t trust Samantha or at least want to try her favorite drink? You can find that frozen drink here.
Walking through, the shopkeepers are welcoming. Stop and share a glass of wine with friends or with someone romantic. Or have a glass for yourself to take the edge off. Another option is to buy a bottle to take home or back to the resort. If you don’t want to drink at all, take in the aroma of the wine or enjoy some chocolate.
The wine glass can be saved as a souvenir. Take it with you next door to the Palais du Cinema (make sure it’s empty when you get there) and go to a comfortable, plush seat in the air-conditioned theater and enjoy Impressions de France. Impressions de France is an 18 minute movie which is projected onto five screens. It is my personal recommendation for best movie in Epcot. This is the perfect place to relax with a warm, soothing wine afterglow while virtually strolling the market places, palaces, country sides and regions of France.
