Wine expert George Millotes to open wine bar in Disney Springs

December 21, 2015 at 8:44 PM

 

 

Original article from Orlando Business Journal and Scott Joseph blog.

 

Master sommelier George Miliotes is leaving Darden Restaurants Inc. to open a wine bar at Disney Springs, Orlando blogger Scott Joseph reports.

The new tentatively named Wine Bar George will be located behind Raglan Road and across from the Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar. Miliotes said he has not yet signed a lease or secured construction financing — estimated at between $4 million to $6 million — and cannot yet estimate the wine bar's opening date, Joseph reported.

Miliotes is just one of a few master sommeliers in the Orlando area. He and Clifford Pleau, the manager and chef de cuisine of the highly rated California Grille restaurant at Walt Disney Worldwere hired away from Disney in 2002 to help create the Seasons 52 concept for Orlando-based restaurant chain Darden (NYSE: DRI).

Miliotes and Pleau opened The California Grille restaurant in 1995 on top of the 15-story Contemporary Resort, which overlooks the tourist attraction's Magic Kingdom theme park. The eatery quickly drew awards and accolades from the industry and led Disney into other adventuresome food concepts in its hotels and theme parks.

Miliotes later created the wine list for The Capital Grille when Darden acquired that chain in 2007.

 

 Orlando Dine Note:

I had the pleasure of working with George while working at Seasons 52 when it first opened. I was always impressed how open he was with all the restaurant staff and put so much effort on training and working with all the staff. It's been great seeing George all over Orlando staying busy with his love of wine and have this grow to another succesful vintage of his career!

Big congrats!!
