Refined small plates, a thoughtful list of 27 wines by the glass (plus a by-the-bottle reserve list), and attractive bartenders behind a sleek marble bar make for one of metro Atlanta’s most reliable wine perches. Located next to its sister restaurant, the renowned Seed Kitchen & Bar, Stem satisfies casual drinkers ordering California Chardonnay and seasoned oenophiles looking for an Amarone crafted from hand-harvested indigenous grapes.  1311 Johnson Ferry Road, Marietta, 678-214-6888, stemwinebar.com
