A Colorful Wine Experience

The Colors of Wine
2355 Cumberland Parkway SE #30
Atlanta, GA  30339
770-432-2828
 
The Colors of Wine is a small boutique wine shop nestled in Vinings off Cumberland Parkway. This wine shop specializes in great and unique wines with a variety of all price ranges for you! You will love their locally made and internationally known white and red wine selections.

Melissa Stewart, Brenda and Clayton Brown have run the family owned wine shop since January 2008. "We have a great appreciation for wine and Clayton has tasted all of the wines in our store," says Stewart.

Colors of Wine feature "hard to find wines" and wines that are not mass produced.  One of the perks of the store that I learned is that if you travel to a foreign country or travel overseas and taste a wine that you liked--you can bring that wine to this store and they will order that wine for you and/or do what they can to find that particular wine at a minimal cost!

Colors of Wine cater to both public and private events.  "We often have public officials come to our store so that our customers can meet their local representatives in the community," says Brown.  Colors of Wine recently participated in a livingsocial.com promotion.  While at a recent wine tasting, I was able to meet over 30 "winos" that signed up for that promotion.  Clayton informed me that there will be an upcoming promotion on livingsocial.com this August!  Clayton says, "We want to get to know our customer before making a recommendation about a wine.  We consider our customers very important and we want to build a relationship with the customer."

Melissa was kind enough to speak to me about a fundraiser that Colors of Wine helped: "Enchanted Closet."  Enchanted Closet is volunteer-run, private non-profit service organization whose mission is to physically, mentally, and emotionally outfit Metro Atlanta high school girls from low-income families through programs that prepare them for social and professional milestones.  Customers of Colors of Wine were able to come and donate prom dresses and formal dresses that Melissa and Clayton donated to Enchanted Closet. 
 

Wine tastings take place on Saturdays from 4-6pm.  The wine tastings at this wine shop are "linear" tastings--a little bit of everything.  Colors of Wine try not to revisit the same wines within a 2-3 month period.
