Barcelona Wine Bar

We’re not kidding ourselves. We know the runaway success of this Inman Park outpost of a small, Connecticut-based operation is due more to the sexy rustic-chic decor and menu of fun tapas than to the amazing, eclectic wine list with more than 250 selections.

Floataway Cafe

Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison’s farm-to-table pioneer might not seem an obvious place to discover inexpensive vino: Its bottle selection over the years, while often affordable, has vacillated between intriguingly obscure and boringly accessible.

Canoe 1

Matt Bradford, one of a handful of local wine directors who have passed the strenuous advanced certification exam with the Court of Master Sommeliers, manages a list of more than 500 wines that covers every major grape-growing region in the world with skillful proportion.

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.

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.

The Little Wine Shop

This storefront, recently under new ownership, fine-tuned its inventory to support smaller artisan winemakers like the Scholium Project’s Abe Schoener, a Greek philosophy professor turned eccentric vintner.

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.

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?

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.

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.
