About us

The backstory.

Brian and Lisa BolterWith a simple Annapolis storefront in 2011 this husband-wife team threw open the doors to the first of their four Maryland restaurants.

Brian Bolter was a Washington, DC news anchor. Lisa Bolter spent years in television news and public relations. Together they created Red Red Wine Bar. A life altering decision to be the change they want to see in the wine world, giving a voice to the wine disenfranchised. As storytellers by trade, Brian and Lisa firmly believe the more you know about someone the more likely you are to embrace them. That’s especially true with wine. Their core mission is to connect you to the stories, quirks, the magic inside every bottle. Every single label at Red Red Wine Bar has its own unique, personalized tasting note. A way to “get” what’s inside without knowing one thing about the varietal, the region or even wine, period.

Brian is the Beverage Director. Lisa is your guide through this one stop gastronomical destination. The 35+ wines by the glass and 120+ bottles pair perfectly with her elevated gourmet menu. Think of it as Maryland coastal meets California gourmet with a touch of New Orleans gluttony. The Red Red Wine Bar philosophy is simple. Buy local, support local musicians, artists, style, innovation and the creative community.
