    Le Cellier Steakhouse is a favourite amongst Guests visiting Walt Disney World, with it's AAA Candian beef tenderloin with truffle butter sauce is a favorite, pan-seared snapper, free-range chicken and Kurobuta pork at this outstanding restaurant in the Canada Pavilion at Epcot.

    The wine list at Le Celier features six of the eight wineries of the “Disney Family of Wines,â€￾ and will be the first restaurant at Walt Disney World Resort to feature all eight, says Rick DeCicco, area manager at Le Cellier Steakhouse. The list includes several Reserve vintages. “We’re waiting on Skywalker Vineyards and Gogi, and they are on the way,â€￾ says Rick. The diverse collection has a personal connection to the Disney name: an artistic talent, a sense of what makes for good storytelling, quintessential family DNA … all of the wineries display qualities long identified with Walt Disney and The Walt Disney Company, carrying on the Disney legacy and typifying the passion, innovation and quality that the name Disney symbolizes.

    The wineries:

    • Fess Parker Winery
    • MacMurray Ranch
    • Silverado Vineyards
    • Lasseter Family Winery
    • Gogi (owned by actor Kurt Russell)
    • Frank Family Vineyards
    • Chappellet Winery
    • Skywalker Vineyards

    The restaurant has debuted a beautiful beverage book dedicated to The Disney Family of Wines, and has taken the service staff through training to educate them about the wines and winemakers. “This has a great impact on our guests since they love a great Disney story,â€￾ says Rick. Every leader at Le Cellier also has completed the introductory level course of the Court of Master Sommeliers.
