It’s about the sommelier!

Many restaurants and bars have extensive wine lists. Even more claim they have “exceptional varieties” or “selections” but who says their exceptional? Who made the selections? The difference between the average restaurant-bar, and a “Wine Bar” are the sommelier; This is the expert; The “selector;” and Atlanta has very few of them. A wine-bar that also has amazing food, craft beer and cocktails, is incredibly rare. Well, one man has brought Atlanta such a valued gem, and that man is Ian Mendelsohn, Owner of Vine & Tap. He has had the opportunity to serve in a number of extraordinary roles and places during his career. Upon graduation from the Culinary Institute of America, he worked as a sommelier at Windows on the World working under the tutelage of Andrea Immer, M.S, and the famed wine educator Kevin Zraly. He then went on to run the wine department at Christie’s Auction House for almost five years. His career then moved onto Las Vegas where he was instrumental in opening of the Wynn Hotel, Pure and Tao Night Clubs. He went on to become Wine Director of the Mirage Hotel and Casino. He was then recruited to become the Wine Director at the St. Regis Buckhead, and most recently the wine specialist at H&F Bottle Shop.

He is also one of only a handful of people in the state of Georgia who have passed the Diploma examination of the Wine and Spirits Trust. A native of Baltimore, Ian favors wines with soul, that say something of the land from which they come and our relationship to it. Ian and his wife and two children reside in Atlanta, and are very involved with the High Museum Wine auction.
