This bill requires the Director of the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control to authorize a winery to operate a salesroom in a municipality that prohibits the retail sale of all alcoholic beverages, including wine, or certain types of wine for consumption on the licensed premises. Provided there is no other impediment to its operation, the director is to authorize the salesroom, regardless of whether the sale of all alcoholic beverages, including wine, or certain types of wine for consumption in bars and restaurants has been prohibited by a statute or regulation, or a local ordinance, referendum or resolution. R.S.33:1-10 permits small plenary and farm wineries to operate 15 salesrooms apart from the winery premises for the retail sale of a winery's products. Small out-of-state wineries licensed in New Jersey are permitted to operate up to 16 salesrooms. The fee for each salesroom is $250. Under regulations of the division, the winery is required to receive approval from the director to operate each of these additional premises. At the salerooms, wineries are permitted to sell their products by the bottle or in other original packaging for consumption on or off the premises of the salesroom, and to sell samples of their products for consumption on the premises.
