SOHO Atlanta Takes "Flight"

Voted "Best Wine Bar" by Atlanta Magazine in 2000, we had the pleasure of joining SOHOAtlanta for their wine flights and tapas pairings.  Each month, the Vining's restaurant explores wines from celebrated appellations and regions across the globe, and this June, the wines of California were featured. Each wine is paired with off-the-menu small plates created by Executive Chef Joe Ahn. The selections change weekly. If you cannot make it on Wednesday, the flight is available through the following Tuesday!  For more information about the wine flight nights: 770-801-0069. 



Our server Ian, took us on a journey of three California wines: Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc '10, The Path Pinot Noir '11 & Floral Springs Merlot '09.

Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc '10 (California):  Aged in stainless steel.  Easy drinking, refreshing. Notes of pink grapefruit, mango & sweet melon.

The Path Pinot Noir '11 (Sonoma): Aged 12 months in French Oak. Dark fruit aromas, mixed berry jams, cherry cola.
Floral Springs Merlot '09 (Napa): Aged 15 months in Oak. Easy drinking Merlot. Hints of strawberry  & cherry, spice.

Also, SOHO, referred to by locals as the “Cheers of Vinings,” is celebrating their 15th anniversary this September. In 1997, Frank Smith along with two former college roommates created SOHO, which they envisioned would be a timeless neighborhood gathering spot in the burgeoning landscape of Vinings Jubilee. Yet after serving as SOHO’s managing partner for 10 years, he longed to be at the forefront of a “mom and pop” restaurant. In 2008, Frank and his wife Susan obtained full control of SOHO and ever since, live every moment grateful for the opportunity to grasp their dream. Currently, SOHO has a total of 60 wines by the glass available! SOHO Atlanta is located at 4300 Paces Ferry Road NE, Atlanta 30339.

We want to thank President/Founder of Crafted by Jill, Jill Caramella, along with Frank Smith, Executive Chef Joe Ahn and our server Ian for a wonderful and memorable evening.
