Michael McNeill, MS, was the first (and for several years the only) Master Sommelier in the State of Georgia.  During the last two decades, McNeill has worked alongside numerous world-renowned, five-star chefs including Gray Kunz at Lespinasse, Craig Shelton at the Ryland Inn and Guenther Seeger and Bruno Menard at The Dining Room at The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead.

 

McNeill is a two-time national champion of the “Best Sommelier in America.”

 

He represented the U.S. in two world finals; at the Sopexa Gran Prix du Sommelier in Paris in 1994—which entitled McNeill to serve as President of the Jury for the U.S. competition that followed in 1997—and the Concours Mondial du Sommelier in Tokyo in 1995.
