Brix Hithouse

Krisana "Brix Hithouse" Barrett gets credit for both clever wordplay and worldly sophistication. When not bumping elbows, she's an executive sommelier. The word "brix" describes the amount of sugar in a wine grape before harvest, which is used to predict the alcohol level in the resulting wine. And while opponents marvel at how cultured Barrett is, well, that's where the "Hithouse" part comes in.
