Carlton McCoy

Carlton McCoy, Wine Director at The Little Nell, discovered his love for the food and beverage world when he took a culinary arts course in high school. A scholarship to The Culinary Institute of America called Carlton to his true passion—wine and service. Before joining The Nell in 2011, his career path led him to Thomas Keller’s Per Se, Marcus Samuelsson’s Aquavit, Tom Colicchio’s Craft Steak and Eric Zeibold’s CityZen. Carlton was drawn to The Nell by its sterling reputation and Wine Spectator Grand Award-winning program. In May of 2013, Carlton earned his Master Sommelier certification, becoming the tenth MS to work at The Little Nell.
