Lucian Books and Wine in Buckhead.

Wine bars are different from restaurants that happen to feature superb wine lists. These establishments tend to be much more intimate and focus entirely on wine, sometimes centering the menu on a particular style or region of the world. Food served at wine bars varies, too, often including selections of tinned fish, charcuterie and cheese, tapas, pasta dishes, and even lean cuts of steak. From wine bar and bookstore combinations to bars specializing in Italian, Latin American, and organic and biodynamic wines, here are 12 wine bars and tasting rooms to check out around Atlanta.
