The Master Sommelier shared this about the wines served at Nomad Lounge“With a focus on South American and South African wines, the beverage program is very special. It focuses on environmentality and producers that focus on sustainability. Environmentality is a core value at Animal Kingdom, and this beverage program is a great way to share that with our guests.”
