Simply stated, we love wine.
We love wine so much that we used an obscure wine term to name the restaurant, Brix 25°. Since everyone asks, here it is…The Brix scale is a unit for measuring the sugar concentration in fruit, most often the sugar concentration of grapes. 25 degrees is where most wine growers pick their grapes for wine – considering that degree the perfect sugar concentration in a red wine grape.
We use that term to influence our wine decisions, creating a list that is the perfect concentration of Northwest wine. As you browse our list, you will see that we pay special attention Northwest wines, only placing wines from Washington and Oregon on the list. This doesn’t limit our list, we still offer over 225 selections, it just allows us to focus on what we believe is some of the best juice in the world. The northwest has a world class assortment of wines and unique growing regions which allow us to offer many varietals as well as many producers. The Northwest has surged to the forefront of wine producing regions in the world, garnering international accolades and awards. In 2009, a Washington State wine was Wine Spectator’s “Wine of the Year” and Food and Wine Magazine named a Walla Walla winemaker, Charles Smith, of K Vintners as the “Winemaker of the Year”. Both these remarkable awards help bring much deserved focus to the Northwest wine scene. In our small way, we help bring that same focus to the Northwest wine scene – being the first restaurant outside of King County to receive the coveted “Washington Wine Restaurant of the Year” award for recognition of our Northwest focused wine list.
In addition to holding the Grand Award from Washington Wine Association for the past three years, we were also awarded the Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence . Multiple publications have featured our restaurant, listing us amongst the best of Northwest focused wine lists. But beyond the awards, what we truly, truly love is presenting these wines to you; helping you find the perfect wine to pair with our Northwest inspired menu, the perfect wine to celebrate the moments in life, the perfect wine to mark a milestone.
We are proud to state that we hand pick the wines for this list and look forward to sharing our love of the list with you.
