Dexheimer has opened his new business as a weekend pop-up wine bar at Durham's Golden Belt, 807 E. Main St. The 16-seat wine bar will be open 6-11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays with selections by the glass for $10, flight for $15 or bottle for $35. Selections also will be available from a reserve list.
