Vino Venue Restaurant Review: Multi-purpose Vino Venue houses the Atlanta Wine School, a private function space, a wine bar, and a retail wine shop. The frequently changing small plates menu, combined with several multi-unit self-service wine dispensers, creates the opportunity to tap into a variety of wine and food experiences. Explore grapes, wine-growing regions and types of wine (ports and dessert wines, for example) that may be unfamiliar, and all at various price points. A good country pâté provides solid pairing with a rich red wine, as does the heftier braised short rib. The house makes its own pimento cheese. Many items are locally sourced, such as Capra Gia goat cheese from nearby Carroll County, and several selections are gluten-free. Any of the house-made desserts will please, and there are dessert wines to go with them plus French press coffee to finish it all. Bring your beer-preferring friends; they'll find plenty to claim their attention, including local brews. Guests with nonalcoholic requirements will find assorted appropriate quaffs.
