Similar to the Refreshment Outpost, the Refreshment Port isn’t your standard Food & Wine booth.
This is a permanent Quick Service spot that you can find on the right-hand side as you walk towards Canada. It sits back a little, so keep your eyes peeled.
But, just like at every other Epcot festival, there are exclusive festival menu items sold here in addition to the daily menu (which includes traditional poutine!).
For the 2021 Food & Wine festival, the Refreshment Port is hosted by Boursin Cheese and serves two cheese-inspired dishes.
Actually, this turned out to be one of our favorite stops throughout the entire festival. Even though it’s not a traditional Food & Wine booth, you shouldn’t skip it — that’s how good the festival offerings are.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Refreshment Port menu, including reviews, photos, and our must-trys.
Important Note: The information below is from the 2021 Festival. The 2022 International Food & Wine Festival runs from July 14 through November 19. Look for updated reviews and information after it kicks off.

Photos & Reviews
French fries topped with Boursin Cracked Black Pepper crumbles, cheese curds, and brown gravy.
Special Diets: N/A
Shannon: Nicely sized, incredible taste in the cheese.
Heather: French fries topped with gravy and cheese curds is my love language. It’s really, really good – salty but GOOOD.
Felicia: The cracked black pepper is a surprisingly delicious and important addition to this. Fries were fresh and crispy and the whole dish had great flavor.
Braised Beef Poutine
French fries topped with braised beef, Boursin Garlic & Fine Herbs Cheese sauce, cheese curds, and Gherkin relish.
Special Diets: N/A
Shannon: Little salty for me, was spoiled by the flavors I preferred in the traditional poutine.
Heather: I am petitioning to be an honorary Canadian after eating this. To be fair, I love me some potatoes and cheese curds. (Although ironically, I hate the word “curd”).
Felicia: Huge portion, the meat and gravy is rich and delicious. The Boursin cheese is creamy and a nice addition. Solid food and good value.
Maple Boursin Cheesecake
A small cheesecake made with Whipped Boursin Maple Bourbon Cheese and topped with caramel and candied pecans.
Special Diets: N/A
Shannon: Wow. Perfect creamy texture with delicious maple flavor. Really a standout option.
Heather: Holy moly. I really loved this cheesecake. Like – delicious. I think I’ll dream about it.
Felicia: Strong maple flavor, nice and creamy texture, and all around delicious. Loved it.
Allyson: As a cheesecake lover, this is very good. Great maple flavor. Definitely recommend.
Luna Lemonade Ale
A fruity and lemony wheat beer made by Playalinda Brewing Company in Titusville, FL.
Made with Alcohol?: Yes
Shannon: Wow. Loved this one. Generously sized cup, amazingly light flavor with citrusy aftertaste.
Heather: Love this beer; it’s so refreshing and light. Perfect for a hot day. Which today is. It is really hot.
Felicia: This is light and refreshing. There is a bit of an artificial flavor to it which brought down the review by 1 point.
Allyson: I really liked this. Not too much lemon flavor, but just enough. Would get this again.
Numanthia Termes Tinta de Toro Red Wine
A vibrant Spanish red wine by Numanthia from the Toro region of Spain.
Made with Alcohol?: Yes
Shannon: Little too vinegary in taste for me.
Heather: Honestly, I wish l liked reds better because I’m worried that everyone else will like this one and my ranking is gonna look dumb.
Felicia: Easy to drink, chilled red wine. It’s fine.
Allyson: Not a wine fan, especially of reds. Didn’t like this.
