No Children Allowed

Chow Maine has a report on Maine’s new wine tasting law and the impact of the provision that tastings “be conducted in a manner that precludes the possibility of children viewing the tasting” is having on wine shops.

Now that the law is in effect, it’s clear that the shop owners’ concerns were justified. Tastings have been canceled, shop owners remain confused about what they have to do to comply with the new law, and getting approval for tastings from the liquor enforcement bureau has frequently proven to be difficult.
