George Miliotes, MS

George’s childhood was steeped in hospitality: as the child of Greek immigrants growing up in Orlando, his passion for food and wine was nurtured in the café owned by his parents, which became a gathering spot for local chefs. As general manager of California Grill at Walt Disney World Resort, he wrote an award-winning list that was one of the first in the country to offer 100 wines by the glass. He became a Master Sommelier in 2007. From 2002 to 2016 he oversaw all aspects of wine culture for Darden Restaurants, including The Capital Grille and Eddie V’s, and was one of the founders of Seasons 52. In 2018, he returned to Walt Disney World and opened Wine Bar George, the only wine bar in Florida led by a Master Sommelier. Wine Bar George is a unique venue that offers 170 wines by the glass, bottle and ounce, along with innovative flights, educational tastings and frequent visits by celebrated winemakers.
