A Winery license allows a facility to manufacture, bottle and sell alcoholic vinous beverages. A winery can also offer complimentary tastings of its wine at the winery, and may sell at retail in sealed containers, but not for consumption on the premises.
A Winery license expires one year from the date of issue. The forms and fees for this license are available under Public Information and Forms.
- The application for a winery must be approved by the TABC commission at a regular monthly commission meeting. Applications must be complete before being placed on the agenda.
- If the local government does not have building and safety codes for agricultural zoning, then the state's building and safety codes will apply, and an occupancy from a state inspector would be required.
- No owners of a winery may have any convictions for any felony or any violation of any state or federal laws relating to alcoholic beverages for five (5) years prior.
