Did anyone book the DVC member Old Key West wine seminar at Olivia's on Sundays? How did you like it?

Also curious to hear reviews - interested in this or perhaps the one at Jiko. Tried to get one of the beverage tastings at Top of the World Lounge for an October trip but was unfortunately sold out.

    It bums me out, these are only offered on Sundays, that's always my departure day.

    We enjoyed the Jiko event. Overall I thought it was nicely done. Our CM was good, not outstanding but broadened our minds and palettes a bit. I would do it again.

    Ironically, we just returned from OKW and never saw a mention of this. Yet, they called several times to remind us of the Wednesday morning tour and fun run. But there was never a mention of the wine seminar. Sunday was the fourth day of our stay-we didn't get T&T either.

    We went to the okw wine Sunday it was great, ladies knew there wines, little disappointed no German wines were presented you got a flute of wine going into the room and then there were 4 more wine glasses on the table 2 red to white the pairs were good. They even came by to refill any wine you had finished so I suggest unless you are a person that can drink basically 5+ glasses in an hour dont plan much after wards. It was fun I would do it again

    Thanks for sharing your experience. It sounds great! I hope DVC continues to offer this and even expand to other resorts- doesn’t have to be wine tasting (though I like that!). I really appreciate the different activities and options for DVC members. Thanks again!

    We too went to the Olivia's event on Sunday and really enjoyed it. The vibe was very low key and talkative as the wine flowed but the sommelier and presenters were excellent. The sommelier knew her wines and shared some good tips. They had us try the wines with our plate of fruit, cheese, bread and prosciutto to see how the tastes differed. They even poured refills if you liked a particular wine. We were surprised that we also got a sample plate of tomatoes and cheese, conch fritters and chocolate mousse. All in all better than the Reunion Station event we did the following day and which I will post a review later.

    Just want to report that we attended the wine seminar at OKW and it was fabulous. As others have stated wine and appetizers were excellent.

    Well worth attending!

    Went this afternoon. Food pairings were very good and the sommeliers very interesting. Would do again. Well worth the price.

    They are planning a mixology seminar beginning in January. Look for booking to begin next week or the week after. They also plan to hold the seminars on days other than Sunday, to avoid Olivias popular brunch.

    We called about a February date and the CM said nothing was showing after December.
    That's because they are moving away from Sundays and adding a mixology seminar. Booking should be available later this month.
