Tap26 - ask us how

importing & distributing delicious wines on tap

 

Wine on tap is hot right now ...

It's exploding!

That's because 85% of consumers order wine by-the-glass and bottles are inefficient - particularly at volume. 

More premium wines by the glass, reduced environmental impact, the consistent taste and temperature, ease of service and more.

And we love everything about wine on tap ...

So that's all we do. If you call DC, Virginia or Maryland home you're in luck. We offer the broadest selection of delicious wines on tap in the Mid-Atlantic. We know what works and what doesn't. Equipment, marketing and service. Ask us how.

As the only importer and wholesaler exclusively distributing wines on tap we love to educate consumers and businesses alike. Don't hesitate to contact us if you simply looking for a good source of information.

A Better Way to Serve Wine By-The-Glass

Why

Wine on tap also guarantees every glass will be fresh to the last drop and it consumes less production, packaging, and transportation costs. The winemaker and Tap26 pass these advantages along directly to you. 

"It's been a runaway success and the advantages are clear"

  • More premium wines by the glass

  • Greater serving efficiency

  • Reduced packaging costs and waste

  • No oxidization, cork taint or spoilage

  • A green choice

The Bottom Line

The cost of spoilage and over/under pours can reduce your margins by 10-25%. And with bottles there is $2-3 per bottle in glass, label, cork, foil, case and shipping costs. With wine on tap you have a more efficient, high margin way of serving quality wines by-the-glass.

 

 

Creating Memorable Wine Experiences

If your producing public festivals, planning corporate or private events, it's time to take a closer look at wine on tap

Tap26 offers a broad portfolio of local, west coast and international wines and ciders. You can easily find a selection to match your event's focus, demographics and budget.    

If it's all about sales

We know, beer is king at most events. High margin and high volume. Got it. But did you know quality alternatives are key to maximizing profits. More than 25% of event goers don't drink beer and over half of these folks will walk right past an underwhelming wine offering.

We get it. Inexpensive national wine brands write checks and donate product. But running wine concessions at events this way is a mess. Literally. Cheap wine, bottles and icy water everywhere and long lines are the status quo. Don't forget the risk of theft and liability of hundreds if not thousands of glass bottles on location. 

What to do ... Tap26 provides a modern turn-key solution that eliminates these problems and increases sales. We have wine-certified vans, trailers, mobile bars and jockey boxes of every shape and size to fit your event. We roll up with delicious wines on tap, eliminate the lines and waste, increase sales and roll out. It really is that easy.

Weddings and corporate events

We're all looking for those little things that will create a memorable experience. So don't miss this opportunity to set your special event apart with a wine bar. 

Make it your own. The fact wine on tap is the #1 trend in wine, it's a green choice, it's faster to serve ... or maybe the fact it looks so fantastic hits the mark.

Big or small we have you covered. We stock standard sized kegs for large events and party kegs for smaller gatherings.

Keg sizes:

  • 1/2 barrels are 78.6 bottles / 1,978oz = approx. 396 5oz servings

  • 1/6 barrels are 26 bottles / 662oz = approx. 130 5oz servings

  • Party kegs are 14.9 bottles / 377oz = approx. 75 5oz servings

  • Mini party kegs are 6.9 bottles / 169oz =  approx. 35 5oz servings
