About Us

We're dedicated to finding California’s best limited production wines.

Our mission at BRIX26 is to find California’s best limited production wines not found in other parts of the country for our clients. The number of wineries in California has exploded in the last few years, making it difficult for the average wine-lover to keep up with what’s truly great and what’s not. So we do the work for you, scouring California and the rest of the U.S. in search of the best new wines we can find from family-operated wineries that put the passion into each bottle. 90% of what we taste we will not recommend to you, the other 10% you will find on our website.

We value long-term relationships with our customers. We’ll work to learn your personal tastes and make recommendations from our latest discoveries. BRIX26 is your inside connection to the best of California wine. We guarantee everything we sell – if for whatever reason you are not happy with a selection simply call us and we’ll replace it. 

What does Brix26 Mean? Brix: is the measure of sugar level in grapes. The wine maker uses this measure to decide when the perfect time is to harvest the grapes to start making wine. 26? The number for the "perfect ripeness" in many of California's fines wines is between 25-27, hence Brix26.
