People want to try new things. You see wine bars popping up that are becoming really successful

Whether it’s to sip a small-batch wine at an intimate bar or a dive into a deep list in an award-worthy setting. People want to try new things. Natural wine is especially popular in Atlanta.

Beyond natural wines, restaurant chains have changed their approach to wine lists. The time of having those chain restaurants with corporate wine lists committed to a certain wine and pour[ing] that everywhere? That world is over. Now growing empires create dedicated wine lists that vary across their restaurants*
