Element 47's wine program has a reputation as rich as its cellar. Not only have we earned the Wine Spectator Grand Award since 1997, we’ve achieved the remarkable feat of graduating 10 of North America’s 150 Master Sommeliers (the most of any establishment in North America), including Carlton McCoy, who runs our wine program today. Along with Food & Beverage Director, Csaba "Chubby" Oveges, Carlton brings an infectious passion to the wine program at The Little Nell. This includes hosting several phenomenal wine events each year, which are heavily attended by a wide spectrum of wine connoisseurs. In August of 2017, we celebrated our 20th anniversary of receiving the Grand Award with a special dinner, documented in thisvideo.

With 20,000+ wines in our cellar, our approach is based on a list that majors on classic producers and regions, with multiple vintages and wines from a roster of the world’s biggest names, from Roulot and Romanée-Conti in Burgundy, to Ridge and Screaming Eagle in California, via Chave Hermitage, Piedmont’s Gaja and a superb collection of mature classed-growth claret. The Nell is proud to have more than 50 sommeliers on staff, comprising 23 Introductory, 17 Certified, 2 Advanced and 1 Master. Read the press release on the recent Court of Master Sommelier exams held at The Little Nell in the spring of 2016.
