We’re excited to announce the expansion of the company’s unique portfolio of wine experiences with the opening of Vino Venue. The new Dunwoody location is set to become the city’s premier destination for enjoying, learning about and purchasing wine.
The New Location: 4478 Chamblee Dunwoody Road, Dunwoody, GA 30338
“We are combining a wine bar, a wine store, a tapas restaurant, and a culinary events facility into one. Vino Venue is the next step in our goal of creating a complete gastronomic experience for our clientele,” said Bryan. “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.”
Vino Venue Wine Bar and Dining
The destination will provide a comfortable yet elegant haven for Atlantans to explore wine offerings via single selections and flights, expertly recommended by Vino Venue’s wine-savvy staff. Serve-yourself wine dispensing technology, like Enomatics, will join traditional bar pours, allowing an evolving nightly selection of almost 50 wines by the glass.
The intimate wine bar environment showcases a relaxed yet modern ambiance, with subdued lighting, hand-scraped wood floors, and floor to ceiling wine racks showcasing the destination’s impressive collection of world-class wine. Guests can enjoy a refined menu of tapas-style dishes and flatbreads along with a carefully curated selection of charcuterie.
Wine Retail & Artisanal Offerings
The amazing pouring selection will be joined by approximately 300 hand-selected wines to be enjoyed in the store or taken home. We’re incredibly adept with balancing solid internationally branded wines with small production, incredible value wines (hidden gems typically ranging from $12 – $15).
From top quality stemware and elegant decanters to fresh jams and jellies and infused oils, the artisan market will specialize in various wine accessories, bar items and locally made products. Guests can assemble the perfect wine accompaniments with artisanal cheeses, fresh breads, pickled vegetables and cured meats from local vendors. A diverse selection of craft beer will also be available.
Education and Entertainment
With more than 200 wine events held annually, the Atlanta Wine School will continue to offer their acclaimed wine courses which range from novice to advanced levels, consumers or trade, and for pure fun up to more serious industry-level qualifications. The instructor faculty will share their knowledge with passion around traditional wine subject matter, paying particular attention to pragmatic “everyday” questions from consumers. The new location will feature an event room with an open, demonstration kitchen equipped with innovative Dacor luxury appliances. The unique event room will be central to hosting local chefs and winemakers for food & wine experiences rarely seen in Atlanta.
The versatile event room will easily transform into a private dining room, ideal for hosting special events, corporate functions and wine dinners. The Atlanta Wine School will also offer catering services for any type of occasion and will continue to provide their travel services with custom tours to wine regions throughout the world.
