Wine Bar George, one of the newest additions to Disney Springs and Florida’s only Master Sommelier-led wine bar, is hosting weekly wine tasting experiences and monthly wine dinners for Disney Vacation Club Members and special guests as part of Membership Magic.
Presented on Tuesdays from 3:30-5 p.m., and designed to help as many as 30 people taste wine like a Master Sommelier, the weekly wine tasting experience includes samplings of six types of wines from well-known and also up-and-coming wineries. Each week features a different collection of wines paired with a sampling of cheese and charcuterie. The cost of $45 a person (maximum of six people in a party) includes tax and gratuity.
The monthly wine dinners, meanwhile, accommodate as many as 10 people on select Wednesday evenings from 6-8 p.m., and are hosted by George Miliotes and, when available, a featured winemaker. This monthly experience, which includes a reception and three-course dinner with wine pairings, is priced at $115 a person, inclusive of tax and gratuity. Disney Dining Plan Entitlements cannot be used for this experience.
Located in The Landing neighborhood of Disney Springs the two-story, 6,000-square-foot, 210-seat Wine Bar George is the vision of Master Sommelier George Miliotes, regarded as one of the restaurant industry’s foremost wine experts. There is no exact opening date as yet, the scheduled opening is spring 2018. Wine Bar George draws design inspiration from a winemaker’s home estate and features more than 100 wines available by the bottle and glass, along with a selection of small plates, cheese and charcuterie boards, family style plates and desserts.
