    I am fascinated by the shared tasting room concept. I am curious as to the type of license that was issued by the MLCC. Is it a SDM with a tasting permit and if so does the permit have to be applied for by each winery? I’ve never figured out how the MLCC would regulate or “control” this type of arrangement. In the past we were able to retail wines from other wineries but not offer them for tasting. We are no longer allowed to do this. I hope the partnership works for all involved, it will be good for our industry!
