Wine Making On Premises License

A winemaking on premises facility license allows a facility to have individuals who are twenty-one (21) years of age or older to come to their establishment, purchase ingredients and rent the equipment, time and space to manufacture and bottle wine for personal use.

A winemaking on premises facility license is valid for one (1) year.  You can apply for this license using RLPS.


  • The application for a winemaking on premises facility license must be approved by the TABC commission at a regular monthly commission meeting. Applications must be complete before being placed on the agenda.


  • Except for wine produced for testing recipes or equipment, and producing samples for clients to taste, the license holder cannot manufacture wine that is not intended for the personal use of the license holder on the premises of the winemaking on premises facility.
  • Customers can manufacture, but not rectify wine.
