Wine Bar George
Florida is home to the first-ever master-sommelier-led wine bar courtesy of Wine Bar George at Disney Springs®, part of Walt Disney World® Resort. The expert in question is George Miliotes, who was part of the opening team for California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and has since established himself as a well-known name in wine circles. The venue, which also serves food, is reminiscent of a winemaker’s home estate.

Vines Grille & Wine Bar
An Orlando original, Vines Grille & Wine Bar is part of Restaurant Row. In keeping with their name — and “Best of Award of Excellence” from Wine Spectator Magazine — they’re passionate about wine, including vintages from boutique wineries and top global producers alike. They’re also no slouch when it comes to food, offering a chef-driven menu centered around steaks, chops and seafood.

Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar
The Fleming’s brand is famous for a reason, and you have two opportunities to find out why in Orlando: one near International Drive on Restaurant Row, close to Universal Orlando Resort and SeaWorld® Orlando, and a second in Winter Park. As the name implies, steak-lovers will appreciate dining here as much as wine enthusiasts, with the latter being able to choose from an extensive selection of vintages.

The Imperial at Washburn Imports
If you come to this location in Ivanhoe Village during normal business hours, they’ll only sell you furniture via Washburn Imports. Come back in the evening, though, and you’ll discover one of Orlando’s most popular speakeasies, The Imperial, featuring a wide range of wine, craft beer and gourmet food. Both businesses also have a shared location in Sanford, about 25 minutes north of downtown Orlando.

Formerly known as Cavanaugh’s, this bar and retail shop in College Park, about 20 minutes from downtown Orlando, takes a different approach to wine pairings.
