Sisters Steffini Bethea and Kellie Owens, owners of The Purple Corkscrew Wine Room & Lounge, are now embarking on a new venture! “We always wanted to open a wine shop so when the space became available in the building adjacent to our existing business we knew it was perfect timing.” The Purple Corkscrew Wine Shop will feature up to 100 boutique wines and select craft beers for the Emory and Druid Hills locals. The anticipated opening date is November 25, 2013 just in time for the holidays and Beaujolais season! Stay tuned for more details….
At the Purple Corkscrew we love a good cause! Breast Cancer has personally touched our families and this is our way to show our support. If you share our passion for supporting survivors and donating to Breast Cancer research we hope you will attend this event on October 24, 2013 from 6-9pm.
Big news! Atlanta wine bar Purple Corkscrew is coming up on its first year anniversary!
Like the wine we serve, we hope to improve with age. What better place to start than by giving back to the community that made all our success possible? We thought the best way to do this was to donate 10% of our wine sales to a worthy cause. After asking ourselves the question, ‘what can we give to a community that already seems to have everything?’ we decided that the proceeds of this event should go towards the completion of the park that’s under construction in Emory Village. Here’s the best part: YOU guys get to help us in our efforts! So stop by our store location (1445 Oxford Road NE Atlanta, GA 30307) between Saturday, April 27th and Saturday, May 4th to give us a hand. Have a glass of your old favorite or be bold and try something new and exciting like our Gunsight Rock Cabernet Sauvignon. You’ll be glad you did!
Have any questions about this event? Want to schedule one of your own? Give us a ring at (404) 373-3263. Or, you can stop by our location during our evening business hours (4-10 pm Monday-Thursday, 4-11 pm Fridays and 5-11 pm Saturdays).
Because on March 23rd, Atlanta wine bar the Purple Corkscrew is holding a special beer tasting for our pals that enjoy a good brew. But wait, it gets better! Our co-conspirators are none other than Michigan’s very own Bell’s Brewery. They’ve been open since 1985, so you know they haven’t just gotten beer brewing down to a science; they’ve gotten it down to an art. Come on down and take your pick of a pale ale, an IPA, a stout or a porter to wet your whistle. Or heck, try them all!
Still not enough beer for you? Want a snack to go with your suds? Our friends just down the street at Bad Dog Taqueria have got you covered. They’ll be serving up all kinds of nibbles—including corned beef, brisket and some wickedly addictive beer-battered onion rings—to pair with whatever you’re drinking. They’re good ‘til they’re gone!
The tasting will be from 6-9 pm on Saturday, March 23rd and it’s what’s called a “rolling tasting”, so if you want to be fashionably late we won’t judge. Remember to RSVP by giving us a ring at (404) 373-3263 to give us a rough idea (within 30 minutes) of when you’ll be arriving so we can have a frosty one waiting for you when you get there. Or, you can stop by our location at 1445 Oxford Road Northeast Atlanta, GA 30307 during our evening business hours (4-10 pm Monday-Thursday, 4-11 pm Fridays and 5-11 pm Saturdays).
