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.

Bone’s

Buckhead’s thirty-three-year-old steakhouse has, no contest, the most thrilling restaurant cellar in town. It’s not just the rotating 1,350-bottle selection, or the iPads on which you can peruse the ratings of the fruit-bomb Cabs you’re considering.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Three Blind Mice

This busy New American restaurant houses a small wine market stocked with reasonably priced, globally minded bottles, which you can buy to enjoy in the dining room for a $15 corkage fee.

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.
