What is the name of the wine store and owner or manager where you usually buy? I have friends in Atlanta who are into wine and might be interested in checking it out if they are not already familiar with the shop.

Then there is World Market (several hundred wines) close by and Central Market (over 2,500 wines) about 45 minutes away.
The small shops have good customer service and knowlegde and one of them is owned by a sommelier. However, the variety of wines is less.
World Market seems to have a nice selection of wines but the manager isn't too knowlegdeable (but he's very nice).
Central market has very, very knowledgeable staff and of course, any kind of wine you'd want. However, they are kind of out of my way.
What kind of stores do you like to buy wine in?

They're not as knowledgeable as other places I've been. But, b/c of their small inventory (about 180 wines) they've tasted every wine in the store. Their niche is hard to get wines from all over the world in the $10-$25 price range w/ a few higher end wines.
What do you think about a franchise like that?

my main focus of my store is to carry wines that are not bastardized.
