A carefully curated wine shop you can nonetheless afford



et’s be honest: Nantucket is a little snotty. A wine store on Nantucket? Downright daunting. But Brix, an outpost of the shop of the same name run by a pair of besties in the South End and Financial District, makes buying wine as fun as it ought to be. They’ll have you the instant you see the bar, which is used for tastings and events, and the surprisingly cheap options in a store that looks a lot more expensive than it is, what with the oak floors and custom-made, brushed-nickel wine racks—reds on one side, whites on the other. There are also ready-made gift packs to bring your Nantucket hosts, and hard-to-find liquors and mixings.



The Nantucket Wine Festival attracts oenophiles and representatives of some 165 wineries to the island every spring in what has become one of the largest such events in the United States.
