The act allows a winery that holds a manufacturer's or limited winery license to maintain licensed premises comprising up to 2 noncontiguous locations within a 10-mile radius. The department of revenue must approve an application for the use of a proposed noncontiguous location if the alcohol and tobacco tax and trade bureau of the United States department of the treasury has approved the description and diagram of the premises at that location, subject to proof of compliance with local codes and zoning requirements. Application and renewal fees are to be established by rule, subject to a limit of $500 per location.
Any additional noncontiguous locations that fall outside the approved boundaries of an entertainment district or a common consumption area are excluded from that district or area, and any noncontiguous location that is to be used as a sales room is subject to individual approval for use as a sales room. Only one sales room may be located at a noncontiguous location.
To implement the act, $13,247 is appropriated from the liquor enforcement division and state licensing authority cash fund to the department of revenue for use by the liquor and tobacco enforcement division.
