At first glance, PEARSON'S looks like your run-of-the-mill package store: booze on one side, vino on the other. But just ask for assistance in finding a bottle of wine to discover what makes this spot shine. The staff demonstrates grace, knowledge and unpretentious enthusiasm. It helps that they have a myriad of both familiar and unusual labels at their fingertips to pull off a shelf and happily expound upon. Whether you're seeking an upscale Chilean Malbec, a ready-to-drink Bordeaux or a loveable California Chardonnay, these folks know their stuff. "3072 Early St. 404-231-8752." less...

First, the vast vino selection at ANSLEY WINE MERCHANTS can't be beat. And there's guidance for the vino-retard. Can't tell your Bordeaux from your Boone's Farm?

First, the vast vino selection at ANSLEY WINE MERCHANTS can't be beat. And there's guidance for the vino-retard. Can't tell your Bordeaux from your Boone's Farm? Think Night Train comes from Napa Valley? There's little note cards on certain bottles of wine, designed to communicate staff recommendations. Advice ranges from straightforward ("Best Cabernet Under $20") to the highly descriptive ("This stuff makes you sit in a corner and drool vigorously" or "Staff Favorite ... means we drank a lot of it.")

1544 Piedmont Ave. 404-876-6790 There might be wine shops in Atlanta with more extensive offerings, but at no shop is the browsing more fun. Thus, Ansley takes the prize for the fifth consecutive year.

In addition to the kindly guides, hundreds of handwritten recommendations pinned to favored bottles can't steer you wrong. Among the more imaginative road signs to picking the perfect vino: "Wine Made by God, for Casamurli 1996 Rossi di Toscana, and "Wimps Beware: This Wine Can Kill You, for Fife "MAX 1998. less...

The ideal of exalting the unsung hero isn't going to happen in this year's wine-shop category. Far from being the new guy in town, Ansley Wine Merchants always delivers in price, selection and service and this year garners its fourth CL Best-Of win. Novice and old pro alike can expect the same kind of treatment at Jim Mead's 14-year-old store. The staff is knowledgeable, straightforward, unpretentious and "the best dressed," according to Mead. The wine tastings that Mead takes his employees to result in helpful signs around the store detailing the sorts of bottled buttery and woody flavors that await buyers and browsers. less...
