Red Red Wine Bar recently debuted the nation’s first-ever Wine Bar on Wheels. Just like the food truck craze in D.C. and New York, the team behind RRWB hopes to create a wine truck craze in Annapolis. “People crave more than supermarket wines thrown in as an afterthought next to the beer trucks or mixed drinks bar at their events,” says owner Brian Bolter. “The mid-Atlantic now knows when they want eclectic, interesting wine that way overdelivers for the price they come to Red Red Wine Bar.”

The vehicle carries three whites, two red, and two beers, all on tap. Customers also have the option to add spirits and additional wine labels. You’ll first see Wine Bar on Wheels at the 15th annual Tug of War between Annapolis and Eastport on November 3rd, where the crew will use the Square Up app, making it easy to buy wine and beer with your credit card. “For fifteen years the MRE has seceeded from the city in a symbolic act of independence,” Bolter says. “Annapolis has ceded the "cool factor" letting Eastport win Best Party also. No more. The Red Red Wine Bar on Wheels has been tapped to take back the party winning in style and the struggle over water!”

The truck is available for hire for weddings, parties, and other events. Contact RRWB at 410-990-1144 or visit Redredwinebar.com.
