Here's what happens when Wine Bar George and Morimoto Asia join forces

Posted By on Thu, Mar 2, 2017 at 11:56 AM

George Miliotes, one of only 230 master sommeliers in the world, teamed up with Morimoto Asia chef Yuhi Fujinaga for his first wine pairing dinner in two years.

The erudite Miliotes, whose Wine Bar George is expected to open in late 2017/early 2018, was in fine form and, at one point, presented guests with a surprise 2003 Grands-Echezeaux Grand Cru Burgundy. Translation: a damn fine pinot noir that retails for about $180.

If you missed the event, fear not. Miliotes teams up with Four Seasons Orlando executive chef Fabrizio Schenardi March 9 for a five-course meal at Ravello.

We'll be sure to post photos of that dinner next week.

In the meantime, have a gander at what the lucky guests at Morimoto Asia feasted on:
