Just outside Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is a strong and long-standing wine program at Bentleys Steakhouse. The restaurant first held a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence from 1999 to 2013, then reentered the program in 2015 with a 150-selection wine list that’s grown steadily ever since. Under the guidance of director of restaurants Steven Medwinter, it’s now at 365 labels. The most recent additions focus on France, Italy and South America, rounding out the international program that’s strongest in California. There’s diversity in pricing, too, with bottles ranging from the $30 range to $1,500, but most are under $100. To make the list even more accessible, Satterlee organizes the selections by intensity, from light to full, and he makes sure there are plenty of familiar names alongside smaller-production wineries. The steak-house menu gets a hint of Southern style thanks to chef Daniel Alvarez, with starters like pimento cheese fritters with red pepper jelly and South Carolina favorite she-crab soup.
