Easy online ordering for chef-driven meals and wine by the three pack, six pack, or case

In an effort to adapt to these ever-changing times and support public health measures, City Winery is providing new ways to enjoy their locally-produced, award-winning wine and food at home.

New wine packages are available to purchase here and range from $45 for a three-bottle bundle that includes their top-selling ATL Rosé to a $225 mixed case of reds, whites, and rosés.

City Winery’s chef-curated food to-go includes margherita flatbreads, cheese and charcuterie plates, Impossible Burgers, and more. Click here to purchase and set the pickup time.

Pickup for food and wine is available Monday through Friday from 11am to 6pm at the spacious patio, which has been set up for low-contact.

“If you’re in a position to help, we could really use your support right now. While we can’t put on shows at this time, we are still making wine, produced locally, with grapes sourced from incredible vineyards. We’d be truly grateful for the opportunity to sell some to you. Quite frankly, our ability to continue supporting our employees and sustain this shutdown depends on it.” said City Winery CEO and Founder, Michael Dorf. 

Dorf continued: “We’re adapting as quickly as we can, given that our company vision is founded on the unique social bond that occurs when communities of like-minded people gather over a bottle of quality Cabernet, while dining on a freshly-prepared meal and listening to their favorite artists perform. We’re figuring out this new normal and continue to develop creative new ideas in collaboration with the artist, winemaking, and hospitality communities.”

For guests wishing to further support City Winery during these challenging times, additional options include donating to their Employee Relief Fund or tickets for future shows.

GETTABITE APP LAUNCH TO-GO FEATURE!

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 3/18/20

GettaBite App Pivots To Launch A New Feature
to Aid Atlanta Restaurants Amidst COVID-19 outbreak
Founders Evan Walker and Rain Li of the popular GettaBite app that was launched at the start of 2020, features thousands of Atlanta-area food deals each week. The team of two have pivoted the use of the free app to feature GettaBite To-Go! It’s the same app, but with a new option to keep Atlanta restaurant guests well-informed about which restaurants and food vendors are offering pick-up and delivery during this current time.
GettaBite To-Go! is offered to restaurants for free for a limited time. This is in an effort to help the Atlanta service industry get word out which is especially beneficial for those small business owners without public relations or marketing support.
The GettaBite duo is focused on helping those that have helped them. GettaBite Founder, Evan Walker, “We want to help get word out for restaurants and push sales for their industry in this downward market. We want to partner with Atlanta restaurants so we can help communicate to their guests which restaurants are open, which ones have shifted to take-out and delivery, and what people can expect to order from local restaurants at this time. Let’s keep Atlanta restaurants and diners connected!”
Users can expect the app to provide a self-guided experience. The deal feed will show several hours of deal information and pick-up/delivery information from surrounding restaurants in real time. Currently, GettaBite features hundreds of Atlanta restaurants and offers over 1,000 deals every week from popular names such as Hawkers Asian Street Fare, Hampton & Hudson, El Super Pan, Moe’s Southwest Grill, La Hacienda, Real Tacos, Fontaine’s Oyster House, Midtown Bowl, and many more with new restaurants added daily. The app is also a way for users to discover new restaurants by area and learn about new dishes in addition to the new featured launched today.
How It Works
Restaurants can email GettaBite at contact@gettabiteapp.com or send in their pick-up/delivery offering through the appitselfand GettaBite will post the offerings on the app for hungry Atlantans to see at no charge to the restaurant.
Evan Walker shared, “We founded GettaBite on the idea that restaurants and their diners need a strong communication channel. With many cities closing restaurants and only allowing take-out or delivery, we want to make sure communication between restaurants and their customers isn’t lost.”
Creators Evan Walker and Rain Li launched GettaBite in the summer of 2019. While studying at Auburn University, this young, entrepreneurial team felt the restaurant market lacked a focused food discovery tool. Students and younger generations wanted to know where to go to eat for the biggest bang for their buck. GettaBite is primarily a database of deals at a user’s fingertips. For restaurants, GettaBite is a free way to communicate deals and offerings quickly with a younger audience. The app is more than a food discovery app, it’s the missing link the market craves. GettaBite provides an affordable way to share an eating experience that is cultural and social with a younger generation.
  • Download on any smart phone at the App Store for free
  • GettaBite currently has a 5 out of 5 rating
  • Approaching 6,000 registered users
  • 300,000+ total deal views every month
  • 1,000+ restaurant deals featured weekly
