Wine, Beer, and Mixology Education & Tasting at California Adventure Food & Wine Festival
There are educational (and entertaining) 45-minute seminars available on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays during the festival. These sessions feature experts on some of your favorite libations such as wine and beer. For the wine connoisseurs, there are many classes to choose from throughout the festival and feature experts from popular wineries such as Testarossa Winery, McBride Sisters Wine Co., Wiens Family Cellars, and more!
The weekend seminars are not included in the general park admission pass and should be booked in advance.
If wine isn’t your preferred beverage, then maybe you’d like to learn how to make some expertly crafted cocktails. There are mixology classes offered on various Saturdays and Sundays with master mixologists creating the “perfect pour.” This takes place at different locations around California Adventure, like Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar and the Hollywood Lounge.
