Christophe Hedges of Hedges Family Estate on Red Mountain in WA State is excited about wine on tap, but he’s got his own way of doing it.
Benton City, WA, Christophe Hedges is tapping 5 Liters using taps from NitroTap.com. In the recent months, he has decided to be the largest 5 Liter producer in the world, and that vision is well underway. Large formats have always been successful in the off-premise world, but how do you push the trend to on-premise (restaurants, wine bars etc…)? Sure, you see them displayed behind glass in restaurants, but how many do you see uncorked on a table? “We’ve introduced this idea to the on-premise arena in a few key states, including California, and it’s really taking off,” Hedges say. Who doesn’t want to buy a glass of wine from a gorgeous 5 Liter standing tall and proud on the bar? And tapping them, is quite easy!” Hedges Family Estate (www.hedgesfamilyestate.com) makes red and white wines from the Columbia Valley and Red Mountain AVAs. They are located on Red Mountain in WA State.
