• Hello & Welcome

     

    I’m thrilled to be your personal wine consultant!

     

    Whether you’re a novice or true oenophile, if you’ve found my blog, a passion for wine is our common denominator.

     

    After years of producing wine festivals, educational tastings and culinary events, I opened Savor Wine Boutique in 2013. As Chief Wine Officer -aka general manager, wine buyer, hostess, cashier and janitor- I created a haven for diverse audiences across metro Atlanta to learn more about wine (no snobbery allowed!), sample local gourmet goods and explore art and culture. It is from each of our customers, visiting winemakers, chefs and artists that I truly learned to savor- to enjoy every moment and live life to the fullest.

     

    It's not just a hashtag for me, #SavorWine is a calling!


    Now, I'm out of the shop and on the road! I'm on a mission to diversify the world of wine, connect people through shared food and wine experiences, and expand your palate with fun, educational opportunities. I'm certified by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET Level 2 w/Merit) and completing certification with the Society of Wine Educators.

     

    Covid-19 can’t cancel fun forever!

    What the Sekt? German wines are my nemesis. Don’t get me wrong, I love Müller-Thurgau, Dornfelder and have never turned down a Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris) or crisp, dry Riesling. However, understanding the Oechsle scale, or reciting Germany’s 13 recognized wine regions (let alone pointing to...

    Savor Slovenia The lush forests, charming towns, remote caves and mighty mountains of Slovenia are easy to conjure with each sip of wine from the country. Situated in the heart of Europe, where the Alps meet the Mediterranean and the Pannonian plains, Slovenians lovingly refer to their country...

    La Rioja I fell down the rabbit hole of Rioja about ten years ago. It’s not a surprise because I love all things Spain- the food, the art, the people, its unique terroir. The current Corona virus situation has even allowed me the downtime to begin learning the language- albeit very, very slowly...

  • Bio

     

    Kyla Cox is an entrepreneur and sales and marketing professional with extensive F&B knowledge and event management experience within the hospitality and retail sectors. She is the founder of Savor Wine Co. and creator of Cork Camp. This avid foodie and wine enthusiast produces a wide array of culinary events ranging from large-scale festivals to intimate dinners. She hosts wine workshops, teaches private educational classes and curates wine tasting pop-ups in restaurants, art galleries, retail stores and venues. With a special interest in the business and politics of wine and a heightened awareness of the intersection of wine and race, she seeks to demystify the wonderful world of wine and aims to make it accessible to all. Kyla believes good wine doesn’t have to be expensive and wine education should be presented in a fun, unpretentious environment.

     

    She has achieved Level 2 certification (with Merit Honors) by the Wine & Spirits Educational Trust and Napa Valley Wine Academy and is continuing her studies with the Society of Wine Educators. Kyla specializes in educational wine-themed events for corporations, small businesses, nonprofit organizations and individuals. As your personal wine consultant, she creates an exciting wine list and her programs are tailored to your unique needs and conducted in your home, office or selected venue. You can expect greater wine appreciation and sharpened skills after attending her tasting classes and events.

     

    For more than two decades she has designed and managed high-profile special events and marketing campaigns for some of the nation’s leading companies and brands throughout her career including Macy’s, Taste of Atlanta, and the Atlanta Jazz Festival. However, she’s most renowned for creating and producing the Buckhead Wine Festival, Chefs in the City and the Organic Wine & Food Fair. Savor Wine Boutique, her popular retail store and tasting room, played host to chefs, artists and winemakers from around the world during its stint in east Atlanta. Most recently, she planned innovative meetings, dinners, weddings, galas, fundraisers and events from 250-2500 guests on a weekly basis in Atlanta’s largest ballroom.

     

    Reading, traveling and spending time with her husband and two precocious pups is where you'll find her in her spare time. Kyla favors small-batch wines from family owned vineyards where the quality and attention to detail shine. What’s her go-to grape? Well, that’s like asking a Mother to pick her favorite child! Although she loves sampling obscure varietals from around the world and craves quirky pét-nat, her latest obsession is anything from South America and she never turns down a glass of Carmenere from Chile or Bonarda from Argentina.
