In my neck of the woods, the Georgetown area of Dunwoody, is the new home of the Atlanta Wine School and Vino Venue. If you don't live in the area, fear not, it is easy to tuck into, just off 285. Vino Venue really puts you in control of your wine tasting experience. You can fill a vino card with a preset $ amount and help yourself to a taste, half glass or full glass of wine(s). Chose from any or all of the three dispensing stations. One white/rose', one low to medium priced reds and a top tier red station. If you need a little more direction and are on the novice end of the wine drinking spectrum worry not, there is a sommolier to help. Here at Vino Venue that is Michael Bryan. There is a menu of wine friendly food availble, mostly tapas and a handful of more substantial entrees and sandwiches.
Additionally inside Vino Venue is a well appointed enclosed private event area featuring an open kitchen where head chef Cidney Wilcox teaches and prepares food for the classes and wine dinner events. You can keep up with these events and many others around town on CulinaryLocal.com. A convenient website that features a variety of food and drink events in the metro Atlanta area (expanding to other cities in the near future).
Yves Neidlinger, the CEO and founder of CulinaryLocal, took his passion for cooking and dining and created a local marketplace to help food and drink lovers discover local cooking classes, drink events, dinner experiences, culinary vacations, farmer’s markets, festivals food-related volunteer projects and much more.
