Under existing law, a winery may not sell its own beverages for on-premises or off-premises consumption at a special event, but rather, must go through a distributor in order for its beverages to be sold at the special event
This bill would authorize a winery or an organization comprised entirely of grape growers or wineries or both to obtain a license from the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board to hold a wine festival where wineries may provide tastings and sell their wine for on-premises or off-premises consumption
This bill would require the board to adopt rules and issue licenses for wine festivals
