Disney California Adventure's Alfresco Tasting Terrace at Golden Vine Winery has a new menu and wine list. Reservations are not required for the 40-seat space, which serves Mediterranean-inspired appetizers along with the wines. The wines available are all party of the "Disney Family of Wines," which the Disney Parks Blog describes as "having 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 eight wineries are:

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

Examples of dishes on the menu include:

- Aged Cheddar-Risotta Bites with roasted garlic-herb aioli and marinara
- Bruschetta with fresh tomatoes, basil, garlic and Parmesan
