We started out with Frosé, but now Wine Bar George is introducing us to the next frozen wine must-drink!
How about Freaujolais [say it like “froh-zhuh-ley”]?
Just when you think no more game changers could possibly find a space in Disney Springs…
…along comes something like Wine Bar George.
We first explored Wine Bar George when it opened just this past May. It is located in The Landing of Disney Springs, which is home to other standouts from newer favorites like Morimoto Asia to places we’ve adored for a long time, like Raglan Road. (And that just scratches the surface.)
Wine Bar George is the only wine bar in the Sunshine State owned by a Master Sommelier, George Miliotes. His history with the Disney company notably includes being part of the opening team at the Contemporary Resort’s California Grill.
And right upon entering the wine bar, you’ll find an atmosphere and vibe unlike any other in Disney Springs…
…or, in fact, all of Disney World.
Simply put, Wine Bar George is lovely. [Read more…]
Let’s say you’re in Disney Springs and you really want to try some of the wine and cuisine at Wine Bar George.
But you’ve only got a limited amount of time to spend in Disney Springs. That’s where The Basket at Wine Bar George comes in!
The Basket offers a Quick Service component to Wine Bar George — the new wine bar in Disney Springs headed by none other than Master Sommelier George Miliotes. This spot boasts everything you could want to create a picnic “basket” inspired by a Master Sommelier… including wines on tap served by carafe or by the glass!
Let’s find out what’s in The Basket!
The atmosphere is… well, quite simple!
The Basket is essentially a Counter Service window, tucked right underneath the upstairs outdoor terrace seating of Wine Bar George.
Wine Bar George in Disney Springs just announced they are hosting a wine tasting with Master Sommelier George Miliotes this Friday, July 20, 2018!
The event is a blind tasting of six wines presenting an opportunity to learn to taste wine like a Master Sommelier! “What’s a blind tasting?” you may ask. The identities of the wines you taste will be kept a secret until the end of the tasting. This method is used regularly by sommeliers to insure impartiality while evaluating a wine. [Read more…]
Wine Bar George is set to open in a matter of days in Disney Springs!
Guests will be welcome to visit the wine bar starting at 5:00 pm on Saturday, May 19th.
The next day, May 20th, the wine bar will begin operating for what will be its regular daily hours of 11:00 am to 2:00 am.
The opening of Wine Bar George will mark the debut of the only wine bar in the Sunshine State owned by a Master Sommelier — that, of course, is George Miliotes!
This spring, Wine Bar George is set to open in Disney Springs, and we’ve got some scoop for all of you wine lovers out there who are eagerly awaiting news on this upcoming spot!
As you may already know, Master Sommelier George Miliotes was a member of the opening team at the Contemporary Resort’s California Grill, then managed the signature restaurant from 1995 to 2002. There, he worked with Ron Rupert, who was also a member of the opening team and has just been announced as the Executive Chef for Wine Bar George!
Disney Springs is home to quite a few great restaurants including Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ Florida Kitchen and Morimoto Asia. And by the end of 2018 it’ll be home to five new dining concepts! AAAH!
Two new restaurants will be opening in 2018, including Jaleo, a Spanish restaurant from Chef José Andrés’ ThinkFoodGroup. Jaleo will “feature an extensive menu of tapas that reflect the rich regional diversity of traditional and contemporary Spanish cuisine, such as paella cooked over a wood fire, hand-carved Jamon Iberico de Bellota, and wood-grilled Iberico pork.”
Wine Bar George has been a long time coming.
Rumors started swirling in late 2015 around a new wine bar headed by Master Sommelier George Miliotes coming to Disney Springs. The rumor was officially confirmed at the Party for the Senses (an Epcot Food and Wine Festival Special Event) last fall.
Slated for a late 2017 opening, groundbreaking took place in December of 2016, and the walls surrounding the construction site (located just across the way from Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar and next to Raglan Road’s Hole in the Wall Bar) were covered with a display of the concept art for the space’s exterior.
