Bills Presented to Public to Assist New Jersey's Wine IndustryLast Edited:
Some changes may be coming to the growing beverage industry in New Jersey.
On Thursday, May 3rd, the State Assembly Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee held a meeting in Cape May Court House to present new bills to the public concerning vineyards and wineries.
Officials say they hope the new pieces of legislation presented Thursday will help support the beverage industry so it can continue its positive growth throughout the state.
"Hopefully through the legislation that we put through today we will be able to grow our wine industry and make it even more prosperous and help it grow faster than it already is," said Assemblyman Bob Andrzejczak D-1st District.
Several bills were up for consideration Thursday, including ones that will allow wineries to operate salesrooms in municipalities where the sale of alcohol is restricted, and allow students over the age of 18 to taste wine or malt alcoholic beverages for educational purposes while they are enrolled in an authorized enology or brewing training program.
