Sneak Peek: Wine Bar George at Disney Springs
Wine Bar George, a 200-seat wine bar, is one of the most highly anticipated additions to coming to Disney Springs. Wine Bar George will offer more than 130 selections of wine by the ounce, glass, and bottle in a range of varietals, vintages, and prices. As for food, small plates, artisan cheese and charcuterie boards, and sharable entrées designed to complement the wine list.
The biggest reason for all of the excitement surrounding Wine Bar George is owner, George Miliotes. George is a renown wine expert, in fact he is a Master Sommelier, one of only 249 in the world. “It is my responsibility to bring joy to the wine list and the experience,” said George. “I want Wine Bar George to encourage conversations of what is brilliant and special in the wine world.”
Executive Chef Ron Rupert, who will be at the helm at Wine Bar George, and Karen McClintock & Alex Dunlap, Disney Food & Beverage Content Relations were invited to sample what will be served at Wine Bar George. Ron’s philosophy in the kitchen at Wine Bar George is simple. “I want to create delicious food that pairs well with wine. I pull flavors from around the world that are relevant – that create memories.” Here is a sneak peek at some of his dishes:
Grilled Octopus with Lemon Vinaigrette – This light and refreshing salad has tender pieces of Spanish octopus (a result of grilling then chilling the octopus) with a touch of acidity from the lemon vinaigrette.
