Wine man Chan Cox is growing his offerings again.

With nine Wine World locations under his belt, his location in Miramar Beach across from Silver Sands Outlets was the only one of the nine that that was marketed as a wine outlet.

That changed this week, however, as the former Wine World Outlet joins its sister stores as it is transformed into a full-service store, wine bar, and cheese shop.

"The transformation is taking place because this is what our customers wanted," said vice president of sales Michel Thibault. "People kept asking for things we have in the other stores but didn't have at the outlet."

With the former wine outlet completely remodeled, the Wine Bar will now look like its sister stores, offering gift baskets, gifts, wine utensils, high-end glassware, cheeses, wines by the glass, and lunch, as well as their standard selection of wines by the bottle.

Formerly based at the Destin store, Thibault is now be based at the new Wine Bar, where he will oversee the wine, cheese, and restaurant operations.

Coming onboard as chef at the new location is Sandor Zombori, who was formerly with The Vue on 30A, and owned his own fine-dining restaurant in Seagrove — Sandor's.
