Atlanta is known for its diversity, rich history and world-class cuisine, but don’t count the ATL out when it comes to its sophisticated wine scene. Whether you like to sip your rosé on a patio along the Atlanta Beltline or enjoy a glass of Pinot noir with your favorite tapas, Atlanta has a wine bar for you.

1. Barcelona Wine Bar Inman Park

Wine Bar, Tapas, Mediterranean

Nestled in the trendy Inman Park district sits Barcelona, a popular wine bar and tapas restaurant. Offering nearly 400 different varieties of wine, Barcelona Wine Bar Inman Park is a wine-enthusiast’s dream. The cozy lounge serves rustic Mediterranean, Spanish, and South American-inspired tapas that perfectly complement their wide selection of wine. Just don’t forget your your debit or credit card because Barcelona is a cashless establishment.

2. Krog Bar

Bar, Mediterranean

Partnered with Atlanta’s premiere steakhouse, Rathbun’s, Krog Bar is a stylish, low-key Mediterranean wine bar that’s perfect for a date night. You’ll be impressed by their selections of wine by the bottle, plus their charcuterie and cheese list, but don’t worry if a glass of wine is not your thing — the bar boasts exquisite cocktails as well.

3. Stem Wine Bar

Wine Bar, Tapas

Inspired by their trip to Italy and Spain, Chef Doug Turbush and Chef de Cuisine Brendan Keenan collaborated on a menu of European-inspired tapas, local charcuterie, artisan cheese, and house-made desserts. And Stem Wine Bar’s large wine selection is no different. The extensive wine list includes Spanish, French, Italian, and American fine wines that guests can buy by the glass or bottle. The resident Sommelier, Jason Raymond, is available to help you pair your favorite varietal with your meal. Located just 25 minutes from the city, Atlanta wine-lovers know it’s well worth the drive.

4. Pour Bistro

Wine Bar, American

Known for its fine food, curated drink menu, and exquisite wine list, Pour Bistro is located in the heart of the Brookhaven area of Atlanta. The restaurant’s seasonal, modern American cuisine is designed to perfectly pair with their distinctive wine list. Cozy, yet hip, the atmosphere is great for a first date or a couple who’s celebrating an anniversary. The eclectic menu ranges from delectable cheese plates and salads, to fish or chicken options.

5. City Winery Atlanta

Wine Bar, American, Italian

With its many successful locations around the country, City Winery decided to set up shop in Atlanta. The brainchild of Michael Dorf, founder of the iconic Knitting Factory, one of New York’s longest running music venues, City Winery Atlanta is located in the trendy Ponce City Market shopping area. Along with wines by the bottle, the restaurant features a variety of rotating house-made wines on tap directly from their winery. On special nights, the restaurant and bar features live performances and bands.

6. Vino Venue

Wine Bar, Wine Seller, American

Offering tasting, dining, shopping, education, and entertainment under one roof, Vino Venue is a one-of-a-kind experience. Located a little further out in Dunwoody, Georgia, and established by Michael Bryan, it first opened in 2012. Originally offering wine courses to his friends and family, today, Bryan’s Vino Venue provides approximately 300 private wine events annually, corporate entertainment functions, and tasteful wine and dine experiences six nights per week in their dining room.
