Michael Bryan, Founder

Michael Bryan was the visionary of the wine emporium concept, Vino Venue. Opened in 2012, Vino Venue expanded on his existing wine enterprise, Atlanta Wine School, which opened in 2004. Today, this multiple choice wine-centric business allows guests to taste, learn or buy–all under one roof.

Michael spoke on wine-related subject matter to consumer and trade groups routinely, and held wine qualifications from the following expert credentialing organizations: The Society of Wine Educators, The Court of Master Sommeliers, The Wine & Spirit Education Trust of London, The Spanish Wine Academy, and the L’Ecole du Vin Bordeaux. As wine country travel and tours has been a vital part of the Atlanta Wine School offering since 2009, Michael toured all but three of the major wine regions globally. Michael believed that wine is meant to be shared, and Vino Venue/Atlanta Wine School embodies that idea by providing an environment with a solid “vibe” and excellent wine, beer and cuisine options.
