Local Wine Club's

If you are a fan of Grapes and Hops, then you love wine. Period.  We have stumbled upon two excellent wine clubs in the Smyrna and Marietta area that you must join.  You must be asking  yourself, “What is the benefit of joining a wine club?” or “Aren’t those types of clubs expensive?” Well, the answer might surprise you.  The answer surprised us!
Vineyard Wine Market & V2 Room
At the Vineyard Wine Market and V2 Room in Atlanta, off of Powers Ferry Road and Windy Ridge, owner Anthony Alvarez has over 80 members of his wine club.  Split amongst two nights, wine club members enjoy 6 wines, including a “surprise wine” to experience. Hosted by Master Sommelier Michael McNeill, two-time national champion of the “Best Sommelier in America” and Certified Sommelier Ryan Mullins, wine and spirit consulant, a wine club member can receive a true wine lesson from these two! There is also a variety of fresh fruits, cheeses and meats to pair with your wines.  A true experience for any wine novice!
  •         39.99 a month/per person or $59.99 per month/per couple
  •          Take home 2 of the 6 bottle you choose that are your favorites of the night
  •          15% off a case of 20% off two or more cases of wine
  •          Savings on all in-store purchases

Let us know if you decided to join a Wine Club and which one! 


  1. I've never been much of a club joiner. However, for a chance to receive fine wine every month, I'd sign up in a heartbeat. I have to wonder if these clubs accept long distance members though.

  2. Yes, I know that the Smyrna Wine Cellars does. Contact Renee Rowe at 770-437-1753

  3. I've never been to a red wines club. All I know is that there are certain people who are called wine connoisseurs

  4. I've never been much of a club joiner. But I want to join some after knowing about your club's highlights. Thank you very much to give the information.

  5. Hi Katie! Thank you! Very sweet comment. Please follow us on Facebook: and on twitter @grapes_hopsatl
