Making certain that Dish Bistro & Wine Bar has the finest selection for our customers, Chef Peter is working with the highly regarded wine industry professional Brian Mitchell DWS, CSW
To get some perspective of how he will affect your next glass of wine at Dish, let's look at some of Brian's experience and qualifications; He is Certified Specialist in Wine by the American Society of Wine Educators and holds a Level 4 Diploma from the Wine & Spirits Education Trust, London, England. Brian has also taught wine appreciation at Yale University , served as a wholesale representative for the top portfolio in the United Sates and is a Sommelier.
Along with consulting, Brian's time is split between his role as the Corporate Beverage Director for a Connecticut based Restaurant Group with locations in three states and global travel. When he is not overseeing the training of 400 staff team members on all aspects related to beverage service and hospitality, he is visiting distilleries, breweries and wine producing regions around the world, working with as many winemakers and beverage industry personnel as his schedule permits. His expertise ensures that the servers he trains are highly knowledgable in all areas of beverages: new products, consumer preferences & current trends, modern & traditional viticultural and vinicultural methods, service techniques, wine & food pairing, craft cocktail production, brewing techniques, etc.
We are more than privileged to have Brian as our consultant at Dish Bistro & Wine Bar as his insights will allow us to not only have to most suitable list of enjoyable wines, but also have the best trained staff to provide you with accurate selections and the best possible service.
