Looking for a unique and memorable option for your next corporate event? Look no further than Wine Shoe or The Wiley. Both are different. Not a restaurant and not a bar. The Wiley is a working Art Gallery and Wine Shoe is an intimate casual tasting room. Both are spaces where networking happens.
You like wine? You like cheese? We do too. So we went out to the small, family-owned European vineyards and selected for you some great hand-crafted wines. We also searched high and low to find outstanding cheese. We did all this with one thing in mind: offering you a fantastic wine and cheese tasting experience.
Wine Shoe has become a landmark for wine tasting and education. We designed our tasting events as a fun and different way to entertain. Instead of going to yet another restaurant, or another Happy Hour, Wine Shoe is a great opportunity not only to taste good wine and cheeses but also to get an education.
The tasting starts in our elegant tasting room with some social time enjoying a bubbly wine served in a vintage champagne coupe. The coupe was designed especially for champagne in England in 1663. In all we’ll taste several different wines, coming from different regions all over the world. From Bordeaux, to Tuscany, to Stellenbosch. You just sit back and enjoy this tasty journey through the treasures of the world.
The wine presentation can be as much or as little as you’d like but will be focused on wine. Our educator will also be available during your event to answer wine related questions. While you indulge in delicacies and conversation, you will learn about wine, how to describe your taste, how to find the wines you’ll like on a wine list, and more while tasting wines that we chose to match perfectly our cheeses.
Our two stunning venues are both located in the Landmark Historic District of Castleberry Hill in downtown Atlanta. Our gorgeous tasting room at Wine Shoe offers an intimate and warm setting. Take advantage of our spacious courtyard as well, delightful year round. Or book The Wiley, an active art gallery with extraordinary personality, for larger events or something special.
When you host your next event with Wine Shoe, you get more than an amazing space. You get an experience. There’s just something about wine that adds an indescribable quality to an event. It simply brings people together, which makes it perfect for networking, team or client appreciation, corporate gatherings, and celebrations. Every guest leaves with new found knowledge, an increased appreciation for wine, and of course fond memories.
