Brix Wine Shop

Brix is so different in look and concept from its competitors, people often mistake it for an expensive boutique. Don’t be fooled: Co-owners Carri Wroblewski and Klaudia Mally have created a wonderful source for delicious everyday wines, with so many au courant varieties priced around $10.99, it’s like a Target for oenophiles. Best of all, Brix procures special orders without demanding the purchase of a whole case, but rather just three bottles. That alone puts most of the other wine shops in this town to shame.
