Atlanta residents who want to enjoy a wine country experience among the hustle and bustle of city life are going to need to hold off until June.

The release cites “unexpected and unavoidable construction delays” as the reason for the later opening date. Perhaps it could be due to City of Atlanta’s long permitting process?

May events including Cracker and Amel Larrieux are being rescheduled, and all current ticket holders will receive two house seats to a non-sold out City Winery Atlanta show of their choice. The Freedom Seder event on April 17 will still take place at a location in Ponce City Market.

City Winery founder and CEO Michael Dorf said the situation is “disappointing.” He added, “All of us at City Winery are incredibly excited to be in Atlanta, and we’ve been looking forward to our first shows. While we are frustrated with this setback, we want to make sure that we are putting our best foot forward and delivering the perfect space for fans and foodies. We promise to make this up to all of our ticket holders. We hope everyone understands, and we can’t wait to see you in June!”

City Winery began in New York and now has locations in Chicago and Nashville.
