Sometime between late April and early May, the vino will flow at City Winery. Located at 650 North Ave., in an outbuilding at Ponce City Market, City Winery is a restaurant-wine bar-music venue concept. As an urban winery, it will be making wine on-site under the direction of its master winemaker David Lecomte. While City Winery will source grapes from both coasts, 40 percent of its fruit will hail from the Peach State. Patrons can sip and swirl in the 150-seat dining room or on the 80-seat outdoor patio.

Among food offerings, look for smaller bites such as fresh oysters, a daily crudo and artichoke risotto, which are standard menu items at its sister locations in New York, Chicago and Nashville. More filling fare will include dishes like fried chicken and burgers. Rounding out the menu will be original recipes developed by the to-be-named chef for the Atlanta outpost. City Winery will also offer a distinct menu for concert-goers grabbing one of the 300 seats in the cabaret-style music venue.

City Winery recently announced its musical lineup , which will include notable acts like 2016 GRAMMY award winner Mavis Staples, Donna the Buffalo, Delta Rae and David Broza.  Tickets go on sale to the general public on March 3. City Winery VinoFile Members can purchase tickets beginning Feb. 25. The membership program offers the opportunity to get first picks for tickets, premier seats, special tastings and free glasses of wine.
