MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin Assembly has approved a bill that would allow minors to enter a winery alone if they're going to tour the business.
Current state law prohibits anyone under 21 from entering or being on the premises of any establishment with a retail alcohol sales license without a parent, guardian or spouse. The bipartisan bill would permit people under the legal drinking age to enter winery banquet and hospitality rooms alone if they're participating in a tour.
The Assembly passed the measure on a voice vote Thursday. The Senate passed the measure earlier this week. It now goes to Gov. Scott Walker who can sign it into law or veto it. A Walker spokesman said the governor would evaluate the bill.
