Somewhere that’s not on the side of 285 with a can of beans and a towing winch and an empty gas tank and a migraine.
But if not, repeat after us: wine on tap, wine on tap, wine on tap...
Follow the warm light that is Vine & Tap, a new wine bar that’s about to bring you things like gratuitous amounts of draft wine and the short ribs that love them, slated to soft-open Saturday in Buckhead.
This is the doing of a seasoned wine guy who’s earned stripes at places like the St. Regis and the Mirage in Vegas. And it’s like a scaled-down-but-still-sexy version of those places (metal globe chandeliers, giant mirrors, Edison bulbs raining down from the ceiling...).
Consider coming here with another person. One you don’t mind impressing a little bit. Settle in. Accept your bottle of sake or decanter of syrah from the tap. Accept your charcuterie plate and salmon croquettes. Be happy. Life’s good.
And since there’s no liquor, there’s no drink menu. But if you ask for a cobbler, they’ll bring you a Civil War–era cocktail of ruby port and sherry.
Or a shoemaker, if they think they’re funny.
