Our Story

Rapp Wine is a national wine & spirits importer, owned and operated by husband and wife, Kevin & Nicole Rapp. Rapp Wine self-distributes in Washington, DC and Montgomery County, MD. From the start, Rapp Wine has had one goal:

"To supply authentic wine & spirits of superior quality and value"

A simple thought, but a challenging task. The ability to offer better wine & spirits at better prices, is achieved through experience, research, honesty, relationships, and luck. Rapp Wine's process begins and ends with relationships. Without the collaborative efforts of our producers, shippers, distributors, and retail/restaurant clients; our goal would be unattainable. 

We have found our partners through travel, trade shows, social media, and referrals. We are guided by our desire to build long lasting relationships with partners who share our vision and outlook on how to achieve it.

We often choose lesser known regions and native grape varietals from family-owned estates & vineyards throughout the world. Low production volume and unfamiliar brand names make it a challenge for our producers to find import and distribution partners in the United States. We are proud to join them on the forefront of delivering artisanal wines & spirits that everyone can enjoy.

The producers and families that we represent are an extension of our family. Our partners share a commitment to the environment and use sustainable production processes.  We are so happy to have the opportunity to share their work with you. Together, we can help provide better access to and understanding of excellent quality wines & spirits for everyone.
