Readers’ Choice 2010 Best Wine Shop

While Dan Matuszek traveled the country working for E & J Gallo, he was contemplating the wine business he wanted to create at home in Omaha. “I started thinking about it 15 years ago,” Matuszek says. “I never found the format that I wanted, so I came up with my own.” Matuszek opened Brix in Village Pointe in January, and it’s been worth the wait.
