Choose from over 100 wines by the glass



For well over a decade Fix Wine Bar and Restaurant has been a popular meeting place for wine industry folk in Sydney.

Owner Stuart Knox, a former sommelier, has made a special effort to woo winemakers and wine sellers as well as wine lovers, offering a hugely impressive range of styles and prices (including some of that cloudy shit that somms love so much).

Stuart, who opened as Fix St James 12 years ago but has since expanded both his wine and food offerings and brand name, sent me an email this week to let me know that his new wine list features no fewer than 111 different offerings by the glass from around the globe.

"I've gone a bit stupid and made my life harder," he joked. The wines are all preserved using the Coravin system.

"Actually I’ve been using Coravin for quite a while now and really see them as a huge plus for my business," he says. "Once the fear of wastage is removed then we can offer people the chance to try just about anything.

"Flexibility is always part of what keeps this place ticking and now anyone can come in and try random wines from random places, or the classics.

"As a wine bar we get a lot of solo drinker/diners in so now they don’t have to feel left out either."

Don't expect a list of trophy wines, or famous names. Look, instead, for an unusual grape variety or a new boutique producer.
