New Programs Set At Wine-And-Cheese Destination Brix Nouveau

Friday, December 20, 2013

Chattanooga wine-and-cheese destination, Brix Nouveau, has begun new programs that will extend into 2014. “In addition to our standard wine list, we have a new theme every month that allows us to add nine new wines on a special menu, which we organize into wine flights for our customers to try,” said Rosabelle Gorman, Brix Nouveau’s owner. “In each flight, we serve a half glass of each of three wines. January's theme is ‘Cabernet,’ so we will be featuring nine new cabs.”

Also new is Brix Nouveau’s expanded liquor license, enabling BN to create and serve unique cocktails. “We now offer select premium spirits, focusing on whiskey, bourbon and Scotch,” said Ms. Gorman.  “This gives us an opportunity to reach new customers, as well as to offer more variety to our regular guests.”  

There is also a Wednesday 7 p.m. wine-tasting class. The cost is $20 per person, and includes the wine and light snacks to accompany the wines. “Every two weeks we change the topic, so there is always something new to explore, even if you come time and time again. The class is really fun and a great way to meet others who also love wine,” Ms. Gorman said.  “I like to stress that this is a great class for real beginners. No question is too dumb.”  

Past topics have included Basic Reds, Basic Whites, California Wines, South African Wines, Roses, Bubbles & Champagne, Wine & Chocolate Pairings, and Italian Reds. Advance reservations are requested for this class. Call (423) 488-2926.
