There are plenty of places in Atlanta to enjoy a large selection of wine, and now one magazine has come out with what it says are the spots around the state with the best selection.

Wine Spectator has released its 2016 Restaurant Awards, and many restaurants in the metro area made the cut, including a restaurant that was also named to Wine Enthusiast’s 100 Best Wine Restaurants of 2016 list (we’re looking at you, Restaurant Eugene).

There are a lot of spots on Peachtree Road, a few chains and several restaurants that are part of the same group (Buckhead Life, Ford Fry’s Rocket Farm Restaurants):
