Wine on Tap Now Served at the Wave...of American Flavors

The Wave…of American Flavors (located inside Disney's Contemporary Resort) is now featuring a variety of wines served on tap. The Wine on tap concept is an environmental initiative that the restaurant opted as a unique way to serve well known quality wines. Wines served on tap are fresher than any other method of serving wines because the wines kept in kegs don’t come in contact with air. The system works with nitrogen, extending the life of the wine for up to 60 days. 

Each keg holds the equivalent of 26 bottles of wine. Kegs are kept in a kegerator that is temperature controlled to serve white and red wines at the right temperature. The restaurant is currently serving Smith & Hook Cabernet Sauvignon from Central Coast California, Acrobat Pinot Noir by King Estate from Oregon, J Vineyards Pinot Gris from Russian River Valley and NxNW Riesling from Oregon. These will be changing on a regular basis.

A few environmental facts:
- A keg reduces the carbon footprint of the same wine in bottle by 96 percent during its life.
- Each keg put into service removes the same amount of Carbon as taking a car off the road for two and a half years.
