Wine Bar George Nominated One of Country's Best New Restaurant

Disney Springs has quickly become known for its amazing selection of shopping and dining options. With the switch from Downtown Disney, the section has changed a great deal. One of these big changes has been the addition of new and exciting restaurants. Some of the recent openings include locations by celebrity chefs like Masaharu Morimoto, Art Smith, and Master Sommelier George Miliotes. Recently, USA Today recently nominated Miliote’s restaurant Wine Bar George as one of the best new restaurants in the country. The nomination is part of their “10best Reader’s Choice Awards” that highlights the best in travel.

Wine Bar George has the distinction of being the only Master Sommelier-led wine bar in Florida. Opening in May 2018, it has quickly become a popular stop for foodies and wine connoisseurs. The restaurant has a collection of some 130 wines, served alongside a menu of small plates and charcuterie. You can get wine served by the glass or bottle. However, there are “family-style” plates as well,  like the Grilled Whole Greek Sea Bass. I personally recommend the Olive Oil Cake for dessert. It is truly delectable! Guests have also fallen in love with the seasonal menu, featuring items from local farms and businesses.

George Miliotes is one of only 249 Master Sommeliers in the world. He personally oversees the entire wine selection making this a truly unique venue. He also has a long history with the resort dating back to 1995 when he managed the California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. With his new venue, Miliotes has created a space reminiscent of a winemaker’s home. This cozy setting entices guests to relax and explore new flavors. It’s not hard to see why the new location has been nominated as one of the best. You can find Wine Bar George centrally located in the Landing area of Disney Springs. If you’d like to place your vote, the poll is open until January 7.
