Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, a person who has not reached the legal drinking age of 21
years of age (underage person), and who is not accompanied by his or her parent,
guardian, or spouse who has attained the legal drinking age, may not enter or be on
any premises for which a license or permit for the retail sale of alcohol beverages has
been issued. Current law also provides for various exceptions to this prohibition.
This bill creates an exception to this prohibition to allow an unaccompanied
underage person to enter and remain in a banquet or hospitality room on winery
premises licensed for the retail sale of alcohol beverages for the purpose of attending
a winery tour.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
