Foursquare Badge for the Wine Lovers

Oenophiles around Atlanta are rejoicing with the release of this new category based badge from Foursquare, WINO.  The Wino badge is awarded to those who visit venues categorized as a “Wine Bar”.  Users who earn this will see the following unlock text:

Quite the discerning wine palate. Let the tannins settle and savor the flavor profile – vanilla, butterscotch, used-chimney. Enjoy your next pinot, you oenophile you.

Wine bars aren’t as common as they were several years ago, but there are plenty of venues to earn this badge around the metro area.  When you’re at one of these locations please try not to overreact like Miles in Sideways if one of your friends decides to order a glass of merlot.

Here are a few popular Atlanta area wine bars.  Do you have any recommendations that Foursquare users should check out?  If so, please leave them in the comments.  Cheers!
