Limited Wineries

A Limited Winery license may be held by any in-state or out-of-state winery that produces up to 200,000 gallons of alcoholic ciders, wines and wine coolers per year. Limited wineries may sell their products to individuals on the licensed premises, to the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, and to hotel, restaurant, club, brewery and public service liquor licensees. Limited wineries may accept orders by mail, telephone and the Internet and may ship or deliver their products to private homes either directly or through a licensed transporter-for-hire. Limited wineries may provide visitors on the licensed premises with samples of wines for testing at no charge.

Limited wineries are also permitted to sell food for consumption on or off the licensed premises; sell by the glass wine and alcoholic ciders that may otherwise be sold by the bottle; and sell wine or liquor scented candles acquired or produced by the winery.

For information regarding federal licensing requirements for the limited winery, please consult with the Bureau of Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade.
