All you will need is to drill a hole for a spigot near the bottom of the barrel. You'll need a ?" hose bib spigot (1/2" will work too but with smaller locknut and washer). These have male threads at one end to screw into the barrel and at the other to attach a standard size hose. You'll also need a ?" galvanized locknut, a rubber washer with a 1" inner diameter, Teflon tape, superglue and silicone. Attache the spigot, place your winebarrel under the downspout, and you're good to go.
