Four Brix Winery
A Gem in Ventura
Four Brix was born in a garage and nurtured by three couple’s love for sharing great wine in great company. In 2008, they came together as home winemakers to begin their journey to success. “We had a few glasses one night and the next day it was, oh my god, we have a business!” joked Karen Stewart, C.O.O. of Four Brix Winery. From there, Karen and her husband Gary Stewart, the Four Brix winemaker, along with their partners and good friends started blending wine. “We feel the six of us are representative of our varied customer base. We all have different tastes and tasting abilities,” says Karen. With their combined palates, they developed their four primary blends, reflecting the four regions of the world that inspires their bottlings as well as the “Four” in Four Brix. Offering the the Spanish Temptress, the Italian Scosso, the French Rhondezvous, and finally the California Zeductive blend. As the popularity of their wine blends grew, Four Brix opened a beautiful facility where newcomers and long-time supporters can enjoy great wine with great company.

A Tribute to Excellence
Standing firmly behind California’s ideal conditions for growing wine grapes, Four Brix sources over a dozen varietals from different American viticultural areas including Sonoma, Santa Ynez, Paso Robles, and Ojai. By creating flavors with inspiration from around the world using California grapes blended and aged at Four Brix winery, you can be sure that the story of each wine you taste will be as exciting as the people who made it.
Wine and Fun
It’s always a pleasure to pair wines with food. While the ability to enjoy this delightful experience is available in the tasting room, Four Brix likes to take their wine pairings a step further. There is something fun going on almost every weekend at the Brix House. After 9 years in business, the Four Brix family has found their wines also pair well with music, painting, and yoga! Check out their upcoming events on Facebook or their website to see how you could enjoy your next glass. From blending parties to pairing classes, there is never a dull moment at Four Brix Winery.
Why stop at wine? While the Stewarts and partners love their wines, it’s not always their drink of choice. During the winemaking process, winemakers often turn to a more refreshing drink. Craft ciders often quenched the thirst of the three couples at Four Brix. Gary, however, could not seem to find a cider in the perfect spot between sweet and sour. What does a winemaker do when he can’t find a drink he likes? He creates Pier City Ciders, a new craft cider brand presented by Four Brix. So stop in and enjoy wine, food, and friends at their best at Four Brix Winery.
