Downtown’s new weekend pop-up wine bar, Rx Wine Lab, is officially open for business in Golden Belt. Sharing a space with Carrboro Coffee Roasters, the intimate, 16-seat wine bar will open its doors Friday and Saturday evenings from 6-11pm and feature a plethora of wines, offered by the glass or bottle, suitable to quench any palette. A glass of wine is $10, a tasting flight of three is $15 and bottles are $35, with additional selections available from a reserve list. Light snack pairings of charcuterie and cheese will be offered to complement the carefully curated and ever-changing wine menu. Master Sommelier Fred Dex, the mastermind behind the concept, and partners Kory Lynn and Tristan Pennell aim to create a unique experience for any wine enthusiast.
“The pop-up at Golden Belt allows us to bring our concept to the community while we finalize our plans for a permanent Downtown Durham location,” Fred shared in a press release. “We will use this time to fine tune our concept and continue to find innovative ways to serve and educate our customers.”
Rx Wine Lab also offers the opportunity to learn from the Carolinas’ only Master Sommelier through informative wine classes during the week. Classes — limited to 12 seats — will often feature winemakers, importers and other experts.
