“I love this place! I’m out of state and I was looking for the perfect wine place to host a bridal wine tasting. I reached out to Nora (the owner) and she was super responsive and very accommodating! First off, the place is like a wino’s dream! Well decorated. Beautiful. Wine decor. You name it! We got the whole place to ourselves for the shower which was amazing and Nora allowed us to bring some decor in to decorate. Although the place was so nice we didn’t need much except a few things to make it “Bridal”! We had 12 women attending the tasting and upon arrival each guest was greeted with sparkling wine and there was assorted fruit and cheeses while we chatted. Almost like a cocktail hour before the main event! As the time came for the tasting, Jay, our wine guide, was fantastic in explaining the flavors and location of each wine. He let us go at our own pace and was super attentive. The wines were delicious! I even bought a few to take home! The place was awesome and let us play some bridal games and truly gave a one of a kind experience for a bridal event. They even gave the bride a large glass for her tasting which I thought was great! If I lived in ATL, I’d be hosting here and going here all the time! Fantastic place” Rose S.
“My mother and I came to the Wine Shoe for a wine-glass painting and wine-tasting session. The owner, Nora, is a hoot-and-a-half and a total dream. There is no pretension at the Wine Shoe; Nora makes things accessible and delights in showcasing wines you might not experience elsewhere. She is unabashedly in favor of sweet wines, which is right up my alley. But she also had big-body reds and beautiful dry sparkling wines from around the globe. As another cool feature, the shop is the perfect size for an intimate special event like a bachelorette party or a birthday, easily seating about 25 people. On this occasion, I painted a lovely wine glass (lovely to me, anyway) and enjoyed a new sweet lightly-sparkling red with which I have totally fallen in love: Sangue Di Guida. I look forward to joining the Wine Shoe’s VIP club and enjoying more sampling opportunities with fellow new and burgeoning aficionados” Ajuah H.
“This place is beautiful!!! You feel like you are in a castle in a far away country when you are here! I planned a group event for my alumni association and they were so accommodating! The owner was very sweet and friendly and talked to us about the location and how they ended up there and what else was in the neighborhood. She offered us two tasting’s while we mingling waiting for the rest of our party before the actually tasting class every started. The class itself was very informative and I loved how the teacher had us interact and ask us questions rather than just talk herself the entire time, that can get a bit boring, even if you are drinking!! I walked away with 2 new wines that I loved!!” Ashley N.
“Love this place and the people! I used to think that getting a headache while drinking red wine is normal for me, and nope! The wines that Nora carries are small production, so there’s not all the extra chemicals added to stay stocked on a shelf in Kroger for years. Highly, highly recommend. My husband and I even hosted our Christmas party at the shop and now in June, people are still talking about how much fun they had.’ Samantha T
“I would highly recommend the Wine Shoe for both experienced and novice wine drinkers! We were looking for a fun and different “date night” and we’re very happy when we left! I feel more educated and knowledgeable about wine and tasting in general. I recommend the Wine Shoe if you want to try a different type of night out with your significant other, want to learn more about wine or just want to get away from the crazy hustle & bustle and chain stores in ATL! We will definitely be back and appreciate the knowledge that we learned! I highly recommend! Take a night and enjoy yourself and expand your palette!” Lenora O.
“I had an amazing time at Wine Shoe. The gentleman teaching was not only passionate about wine but he was equally as passionate about music. I was totally engulfed in his conversation. This wasn’t just a wine tasting, it was an experience. I left feeling like there was so much more I have to explore in this world!” Jay S.
“Such a cute place in the downtown area. I was here for a special event and the host was very accommodating and great to work with. They specialize in boutique wines and getting to know the makers of the wines. The party was well executed and very casual. I would go back again!” Ryan B.
