Vin ATL Wineshop and Tasting Room Slated to Open in Edgewood

Weekly wine tastings, plenty of varietals, and outdoor live music coming soon.

Dwight Cunningham is bringing Vin ATL, a wine shop and tasting room, to Edgewood, at 1454 La France Street, the Atlanta Business Chronicle first reported.

“We do not have a confirmed opening date, as we are waiting for permitting from the city to begin construction,” Cunningham told What Now Atlanta in an email Monday. “Our hope is to open in late spring.” 

Cunningham co-founded the Roswell Wine Festival in 2012. And then in March 2020, he seized the opportunity of having extra time during the pandemic to focus on a business plan for a wine shop.

“We are creating a mid-century modern environment, with seating up to 15 indoors with additional outside seating,” Cunningham said. “In addition, we will have a record player and vinyl for customers to play while shopping or enjoying a flight.”

These days, a stroll through Edgewood shows how MARTA’s push for transit-oriented development has continued to bear fruit despite the pandemic.

What used to be a vast, usually two-thirds empty parking lot has transformed into “Edgewood Park,” a 6.3-acre project with five distinct components, including a public greenspace.

MARTA has entered into long-term ground leases with developer Columbia Ventures to build the mixed-use hub, similar to other TOD partnerships, according to Stephany Fisher, the transit agency’s spokesperson.
