One of the most anticipated openings of summer 2013 in Atlanta is Vine & Tap, opening in the former Pizzeria Venti. Now, Atlanta magazine has the scoop on what the new wine bar, Vine & Tap, will look like. 

Said owner Ian Mendohlsson to Atlanta magazine, "There will be six taps of beer and four taps of wine available by the glass or carafe. The initial wine list will have about 75 bottles and 20 available by the glass." He said he hopes to showcase small producers in a way that's not intimidating to the normal customer — and at affordable prices. "I find most of the wine lists in the city criminal," he said. "A bottle of wine will cost $40 to $70; wine on tap will be $8 to $13."

Vine & Tap, done up in a restored 1800s Atlanta farm for its tables and a rustic lounge feel, will also have small bites on tap: bruschetta, charcuterie, cheese, olives, panini, salad, and small bites like sliders, braised short rib and goat cheese crepes, meatballs, and Southern arancini.
