Pop Quiz: Can you name the five S’s of wine tasting? If the answer is “no,” then it’s a good thing we’re spending the morning at a place with all the answers.
The Good Day feature team has never been known to turn down a good glass of wine, and we tried several (well, at least several sips) at City Winery Atlanta’s brand-new addition, The Tasting Room. In case you’ve never been, City Winery — located at Atlanta’s Ponce City Market — is a wine-making facility, restaurant, and music venue, known for pairing some of music’s biggest stars with top-notch food and wine. The Tasting Room gives visitors a chance to try out some of the winery’s creations — including the new white wine Debutante — while also drinking in the knowledge of the winery’s sommeliers and winemakers.
Hours of operation for The Tasting Room are 3 to 8 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays, 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Fridays, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturdays, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays. Winemaker Travis Green will also host free weekly Winemaker Wednesdays from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
City Winery Atlanta’s Barrel Room Restaurant & Wine Bar, meanwhile, is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sundays through Wednesdays, and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Thursdays through Saturdays. Upcoming artists scheduled to perform at the venue including Grammy-nominated singer Brian McKnight (May 13th and 14th) and rocker Perry Farrell (June 22nd).
