The Wine Flight.

Calling all Vino fans...I've just been reading tonight's food blog and there's an interesting review of Yachtsmen Steakhouse ( no way am i gonna attempt that 28oz porterhouse ) Anyway...Question time..I've never had a wine flight with my meal..I did see a couple order it at Jiko and it intrigued me...So with my DW preferring white wine and me preferring red, is this possible to order.?..Also, have any of you tried a wine flight..What are your thoughts on this idea.?

I had a wine flight at Portobello in November. It was a good way to try different wines.

I think that ordering flights is a fun way to get to sample several new flavors that you may not have ordered to begin with. Ask the sommelier at the restaurant what they can put together for you and I'm sure that something can be arranged to make both of you happy.

We've done wine flights, albeit not at any WDW restaurant. We were a party of six at a nice area restaurant's annual summer Mediterranean small plates event. We were all sharing umpteen small plates and also got two wine flights, one white and one red, and we each sipped every one of them (no worries, none of us had any deadly communicable diseases). They did not offer a combination of whites and reds in a single flight. But each glass only held a small amount of wine, really just enough for each of the six of us to have one generous sip. So depending on how they do wine flights at Yachtsman, and how much you care to drink, you may be able to get a white flight for Her Majesty and a red flight for yourself.

I recall that at Artist Point there was a red or white flight. Depending on your main course, you could get either. That was several trips ago. . .

I haven't had one in WDW but I have elsewhere. I love flights! It's a great way to try a lot of different things without investing a lot. Typically my DH and I share because we have similar tastes. I'm really looking forward to getting some flights when we head to the World next month! Based on what I've researched about them a lot of the WDW flights do have a mix of red and white.

I didnt do one at an actual resturant but I did do one of the wine flights in teh one little store in Germany. It was pretty good. And I felt like a decent amount of wine for the price.
