Steakhouse 55 at the Disneyland Hotel Introduces New Winemaker Dinner Series at Disneyland Resort

Embark on an amazing culinary adventure and raise a glass to the new Winemaker Dinner Series coming to Steakhouse 55 at the Disneyland Resort in 2020!

Steakhouse 55, the signature fine dining restaurant at the Disneyland Hotel, will offer one-of-a-kind, multi-course menus, expertly paired to selections from renowned wineries on select dates throughout the year.  A visiting vintner will guide guests through each wine’s journey from grape to glass and explain why it was chosen to accompany their meal.

The first event on January 15, 2020, features Wente Vineyards, the country’s longest, continuously operated, family-owned winery founded in 1883.  Blending traditional and innovative winemaking practices, the Wente family has drawn from their California estate vineyards in the Livermore Valley and Arroyo Seco, Monterey appellations to create an outstanding portfolio of fine wines. These include chardonnay, merlot, pinot noir and rosé, to name a few, which are currently exported to 75 countries around the globe. Aly Wente, senior brand manager and fifth generation wine grower, will share her family’s passion and stories about each wine.
