I am sure most of my readers know that I am an Oenophile-“a lover or connoisseur of wine.” I fit under the lover part. 🙂
Over a year ago, I had a wine tasting series on my blog which covered the best places for wine tasting in Atlanta.
I really enjoyed gathering with friends at places such as Vine & Tap, Murphy’s and Perrine’s Wine Shop.
Whether you are a novice or a long time wine enthusiast, there is always something to be learned from wine tasting with experts. Because I have been traveling so much (Dubai in November, Thailand in January, South Africa in March..) I have not been able to explore my hometown of Atlanta as much as I would like. But, I have dedicated an entire section of my updated webzine to Atlanta (be sure to check out the NEW look!) Starting this spring, I will resume this series in search of the best places for wine tasting in Atlanta. In addition, I will be attending as many food & wine festivals in the area as possible. I do love food just as much as wine. (lol).
Along with revisiting wine bars I enjoyed in the past, I have added places on my list for wine tasting in Atlanta!
This list includes locations within the city perimeter as well as outside the perimeter. Get more information about the area by buying a Lonely Planet Atlanta guide.
