Atlanta Wine School expands in Dunwoody with Vino Venue


Oenophiles, rejoice.

The Atlanta Wine School will be expanding into Dunwoody this fall with Vino Venue, a new wine concept featuring a wine bar, a wine store, and a demonstration kitchen offering Mediterranean small plates.

Founded in 2003, Michael Bryan’s Atlanta Wine School is known for its creative classes and seminars and aims to offer a “comfortable yet elegant haven” to learn about wine, according to the press release. Courses will range from novice to advanced and cater to consumers, traders, and even those in the industry.


“Vino Venue is the next step in our goal of creating a complete gastronomic experience for our clientele,” Bryan said in a press release. “We are proud of the Atlanta Wine School’s success and are excited about the new products and services which will be available to our guests at Vino Venue.”

In addition to the wine bar and dining options, Vino Venue will have an artisan market filled with wine accessories like stemware and decanters and locally made products like fresh jams and jellies. Artisanal wines will be available for purchase for tasting or by the bottle


The interior was designed by Jeffrey Bruce Baker of Jeffrey Bruce Baker Designs and will showcase “subdued lighting, hand-scraped wood floors, and floor to ceiling wine racks.”

Vino Venue will be located at 4478 Chamblee Dunwoody Road in the newly refurbished Georgetown and looks to open early to mid-October.
