An Act To Amend the Taste Testing of Wine Law
Sec. 1. 28-A MRSA §1205, first ¶, as amended by PL 2005, c. 32, §1, is further amended to read:
For the purposes of this section, "fine wine store" means a store that carries at least 250 different wine labels or carries at least 125 different wine labels, holds a wine license only and meets the compatible merchandise requirement of section 1201, subsections 6 and 7.
This bill sets a single minimum 125-label standard of qualification for conducting wine taste-testing events by off-premise retail licensees, regardless of whether the licensee also sells other types of alcoholic beverages.
