Wine Tasting in Atlanta


Select Local Merchants

Flanked by rustic stone columns and carved lions, 5 Seasons Brewing's entrance looks like the secluded front to a Napa Valley villa, belying its cozy atmosphere and community-focused mission to provide tasty, affordable food and drink. Founded by chef David Larkworthy—son of a pioneering advocate of using organic food in restaurants—Five Seasons Brewing carries its commitment to community to its ingredients, cooking with a cornucopia of regularly shifting local produce from a gaggle of affiliated farms. The menu features such fusion dishes as crispy alligator served with a blackened chili glaze and Remoulade. At tables, guests dig in to home-baked bread, whose warm crust exudes tangy scents from the brewery's spent beer grain. In the towering tanks that skirt the pub, brewmaster Kevin McNerney creates a kaleidoscopic selection of unique small-batch beers. The cofounder of flagship Georgia brewer SweetWater, McNerney brings two decades of experience to his craft, making refreshing brews such as the Chug Monkey and turning to ancient Belgian traditions to make his crisp, orange-infused witbier.

Vino Venue, the brainchild of Atlanta Wine School founder Michael Bryan, corrals a restaurant, culinary school, and wine shop?making it a wine emporium under one roof. With its 200 wines by the bottle, 50 wines by the glass, wine accessories, and a mouthwatering menu of small plates and entrees to share, Vino Venue ensures that oenophiles don?t have to look any further to satisfy their wine needs. And that includes their culinary-education needs. Atlanta Wine School classes continue at Vino Venue in a new demonstration kitchen and event room, where a crack team of chefs and sommeliers host private parties ranging from one-on-one wine classes to socials and mixers. Inside the cozy wine emporium, guests gather around rustic communal tables constructed of 1850s barn wood to enjoy a house-made menu featuring braised beef with potato-leek waffles, lobster mac 'n' cheese, and a cheese and charcuterie list that rivals a Parisian bistro. The dishes pair with an extensive selection of 32 wines from self-dispensing machines, available in increments of tastes, half glasses, or full glasses. That may be part of what's earned the restaurant so much acclaim. Gayot.com named them one of the 10 best wine bars in the United States.

Divided across two floors, Top Flr exudes a trendy vibe that’s "claiming the attention of the in-town youthful, slightly offbeat crowd with modest pockets and good taste," according to Gayot. DJs perform on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings, ensuring that patrons' toes tap and heads bob as they sip the bar's signature cocktails or ask the capable bartenders to invent new drinks on the spot. This revelry-inducing spirit endures throughout the night, and the restaurant stays open until 1 a.m. on weeknights and 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. The kitchen keeps the same late-night hours, and Executive Chef Travis Carroll continues cooking his eclectic menu of upscale comfort foods until the doors close. The selection is New American with international influences. Hickory-smoked duck breast arrives with fennel salt and lavender jus, and the mussels steep in a soy broth tinged with the contrasting, yet complementary, flavors of coconut and lime. Damask-patterned walls and simple wooden floorboards aside, Top Flr's ambiance mimics the contemporary spirit of its menu and its clientele. The decor is minimalist, with low-slung black-and-white chairs, dark tables, and art-free walls. The lounge section mirrors this color scheme with a black couch that functions as booth seating for the intimately clustered, bistro-style tables.
