Wine Director / Certified Sommelier
Alex Bargsley brings an impressive mix of experience and passion for food and wine to his role as the Wine Director of B&B Butchers & Restaurant in Fort Worth.
Born and raised in Colleyville, TX, Alex has lived in North Texas his entire life where he worked as a server in several dining establishments, quickly learning many facets of the restaurant and wine industry.
After realizing the depth of information there is to learn about wine, he was hooked and began studying to become a sommelier. In January 2017, he finished in the top of his class and became a Certified Sommelier through the Court of Master Sommeliers.
Before joining the B&B Fort Worth team as the Wine Director in October 2019, Alex worked as the Sommelier for Pappas Brothers Steakhouse for two and a half years. “Steakhouses are everywhere in Fort Worth, but no one has the pedigree of steaks that B&B does,” says Alex.
With an eclectic pallet, he truly enjoys exploring new wines from unique regions, and has been quoted in local magazine articles about food and wine pairings. If you ask him what his favorite wine to drink with a steak dinner is, he’ll say, “One I haven’t had before!” If you’re looking for a more direct answer, he would suggest a wine from South Africa, Mount Etna or Portugal – in his words, “something different!” When Alex isn’t exploring new wines, he loves spending time with his wife and children.
Alex looks forward to answering any questions you may have – whether you’re looking to pair a bottle of wine with your meal or just needing the right glass of something to take the edge off after a long day.
