Brian White, Sommelier



Brian White
Atlanta-native Brian chooses the wines poured throughout the hotel, with special emphasis on the highly-awarded wine cellar in Atlanta Grill to assure superbly paired selections for the menus created by Chef Brian Jones. He is a creative and talented sommelier, as evidenced by the list of wines-by-the-glass he has curated for Lumen, the hotel's lobby bar, which brims with inspired choices. Mr. White developed an expertise and passion for wines over a career spanning 20 years in hospitality, including Maitre'd at the formal dining room at Atlanta's historic members-only Capital City Club. He continues to work toward certification by the Court of Master Sommeliers, and will sit for the Advanced Level exam in the near future.
