Tasting with Master Sommelier George Miliotes Coming to Judson’s Live

Blind tastings and wine explorations begin April 7, 2024

Orlando, Fla. (Mar 7, 2024)Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in partnership with world renowned Master Sommelier and restauranteur, George Miliotes, will host “Tasting with Master Sommelier, George Miliotes at Judson’s Live” – an all-new immersive experience for wine lovers of all levels.

In keeping with the sense of discovery that Judson's Live inspires, this 90-minute wine tasting focuses on exploring and understanding wine in a new way.

George Miliotes, one of 273 Master Sommeliers in the world and owner of Wine Bar George at Disney Springs, will guide the experience.

“This event inspires you to use your senses differently,” says Miliotes. “You walk away with more than a tasting of delicious wine in an amazing venue, you gain a deeper understanding of wine, regions and taste – while having some fun!”

Guests will learn with a “blind” tasting of world-renowned reds and refreshing whites, accompanied with a chef’s charcuterie board to complement the flavors of the wine.

"This is an opportunity to invite guests to a unique experience at Judson’s Live alongside a Master Sommelier,” said Kathy Ramsberger, president & CEO of the Dr. Phillips Center. “We strive to offer incredible food and drinks in an intimate space and this collaboration elevates the room's offerings."

Miliotes lives in Orlando, Florida and became a Master Sommelier by passing a series of rigorous examinations that require candidates to identify wines by taste, aroma and sight. A firm believer in lifelong learning and sharing his knowledge with others, Miliotes studies wine continuously, identifying the most interesting varieties through annual trips to wine-growing regions from France to South Africa.

Space is limited. The ticket price is $120 per guest.
