Wine shop in Atlanta?
What's the best wine shop in town? I'm staying downtown but would be willing to go quite a bit out of my way.
We usually go to either Tower or Green's. Pearson's tends to be more expensive- plus I don't know about their wine selection, but they've seriously let the beer and spirits selection slide. Haven't been to the Wine Gallery, other than to observe that it's possibly the worst retail location in Atlanta- no access from where it's visible. There's also Toco Giant and Sherlock's in Cobb, plus two smaller intown locations (Brookhaven and Northside Pkwy near W Paces).
I honestly don't know how GA wine prices compare. They tend to be relatively good for beer and spirits, though. Unless you're comparing a CA wine purchased on the left coast, which always seems to be a few bucks cheaper.
Ansley Wine Merchant has the best staff, IMO. Maybe not a huge, huge inventory, but they keep a great selection and are very helpful.
Located in Ansley Mall at Piedmont & Monroe intersection.
