BILL NUMBER:S171

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the alcoholic beverage control law, in
relation to sale of products complementary to wine and wine products

PURPOSE: To permit the sale of food items complementary to wine by
retailers licensed to sell liquor at retail for consumption off
premises.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Amends section 1. Subdivision 4 of section 63
of the alcoholic beverage law to allow the sale of products
complementary to wine including chocolates, bakery products,
perishable cheeses and fruits. These products shall not be sold
except when such aggregate sale includes one or more bottles of wine.

JUSTIFICATION: The sale of wine products has become a larger part of
New York State tourism in recent years. Expansion of wine trails and
direct interstate shipment has made operating a wine store a more
attractive business venture. Allowing these stores to sell certain
food products in addition to wine products would enhance profitability
and assist the promotion of local wine products.

Development, and Small Business Committee.
S.1460 of 2007/2008; Referred to Senate Commerce, Economic
