Spend your money choosing more selectively in Italy, France and Germany.
JimmyV! The voice of reason. Thank you - I needed that.

OT: Jiko Wine Tasting

Quite a bit off the Epcot wine topic, but perhaps a good alternative:

I highly recommend the Wine Tastings on Wednesday at 3pm at Jiko at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. It's $25/person, you taste three of the South African Wines, get cheeses from the artisanal cheese selection at Jiko along with some fruit, and get to hear about the wines and the South African wine industry from Jiko's sommelier. The initial tasting pours are good, and we've been allowed refills. At a table of 11 people, we ended up going through about 6 bottles of wine during the tasting.

The wines are off the list at Jiko, and are generally in the $35-$40 range on their list.

Thank you! That sounds fabulous!

I did this in December. The card is not dated, I used it on two different days. I agree that the wine isn't the top of the line but I found them to be enjoyable - some better than others, of course.

I'm actually shocked we haven't seen the "If you have to have wine to enjoy Epcot, you have a problem", post.

No, the card is not dated. Since each country/sample/visit requires a stamp, as long as you have the unstamped card, its good the next time you go to get your sample.

Great alternative! We haven't done this yet but have tried flights of wine at Jiko and were not disappointed. By far the best wines on Disney property!
