Cellar 13

No one demystifies the whole Old World versus New World puzzle for customers better than owner John Passman, who earns his beloved status among regulars with insightful recommendations that never feel like an upsell.

Hinton’s Wine Store

Former Falcons offensive lineman Chris Hinton owns the most comprehensive wine emporium in the northern suburbs, offering $10 Hess Select Chardonnay and $1,200 Château Latour alike.

Perrine’s Wine Shop

In February Perrine Prieur scooted her store in the White Provision complex one spot closer to neighbor Yeah! Burger, grabbing more storage space while maintaining the cute-as-a-clothing-boutique atmosphere.

Miller Union

Fans of Australian Shiraz2, South African Pinotage, or Argentinian Malbec will note their absence on Miller Union’s beverage roster: Co-owner Neal McCarthy, who compiles the restaurant’s list, avoids the Southern Hemisphere.

Ansley Wine Merchants

The cultivated clutter, the wacky handmade signs extolling staff favorites, the way the assortment always seems one step ahead of emerging wine regions and trends: What’s not to love about Ansley Wine?

Le Caveau Fine Wines

Eric Brown’s compact, tidy shop across from the Chamblee MARTA station opened last year and immediately became a darling of the city’s wine wonks. They stock some carefully chosen, often-single-vineyard California varietals, but they really put their heart into procuring obscure, Old World varietals.

Kyma

In the same way that Kyma’s wood-grilled octopus and whole fish lift you to culinary vistas way beyond the average gyro joint, the restaurant’s beverage program cracks open the under-explored world of Greek wines.

Sotto Sotto

Italian-only wine lists are on the rise throughout the city (the affordable options at Buckhead’s just-opened STG Trattoria stand out), but none yet compete with the 200-bottle compendium at Riccardo Ullio’s fourteen-year-old jewel.

Woodfire Grill

Executive chef Kevin Gillespie draws the crowds, but Woodfire’s ace service staff works tirelessly to ensure that the Woodfire experience surpasses expectations.

Krog Bar

Kevin Rathbun’s diminutive wine bar opened in 2005 and remains one of the city’s few casual post-work stopovers—a place to catch up with friends, predinner, over a glass of simple wine (from a list dominated by Spanish, French, and Italian varietals) while noshing on simple meats and cheeses.
