    Hmmmmm, I tried to do a search for you. It is not Liebfraumilch by VALCKENBERG, the search I did said it is the German wine for WDW.. I do know about Riesling though so maybe it is not the right one. Hopefully someone else knows the name of this wine you are looking for.

    Thanks for trying. It is definitely not the Liebfraumilch. My neighbor is haveing an Octoberfest party and gets annoyed when I am always drinking a non-German wine. So I thought I would track down the name of this one. Unfortunately we are not going to Disney until Nov.

    Anyone else have suggestions?

    I believe the name of the dry reisling we bought there is Weingut P.J. Valckenberg. We have purchased some excellent Australian dry reislings, but I do not know if that would fit in with the Octoberfest theme.

    I bought some in December for a friend. I will call and see if they still have that bottle. But she won't be home until later.

    Will a wine from Alsace count? I've never bought any wine from WDW Germany, but this one is really nice.

    Is it called Polka Dot? It on a Blue Bottle and it is really good. I happen to know 'cause I work for Gallo Winery and Polka Dot is now own or associated by Gallo. Yeap, nice to work in a company where you can have a free wine tasting. I should take a picture of it and share it with you if this is the wine you're looking for. I was told you can buy these at Cost Plus or Beverages n More! :thumbsup2

    OK, got ahold of my friend. The one we got them had a blue label. I remember they had the same brand but with a green label, also, don't know what the difference was.

    Anyway, she said the name was Graff.
