    Epcot's Food & Wine Festival will be among the first venues in Florida to serve wine on tap in 5-gallon kegs under the new Florida law that allows wine to be dispensed from sustainable stainless-steel containers.

    Two locations – the Festival Center and Refreshment Cool Post – will be serving from kegs, with a Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir at Cool Post and a Cabernet and Chardonnay in the Festival Center.
    “The wines on tap offer guests a fresh glass of wine with every pour,â€￾ says Marianne Hunnel, in charge of Content Development for the festival. “They’re good quality, mid-range wines, and when we tasted side by side with the bottle and keg, we couldn’t tell the difference.â€￾ From an environmental perspective there is less waste. No need for bottles, cardboard, corks or labels.

    This is just a law that passed a month or so ago. It helps the costs for restaurants, vendors, etc so they are not opening so many bottles of wine and then having them go bad. Whether or not the savings are going to be passed onto the consumer is another matter.
