ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
On May 11, 2017 the governor of New Jersey signed into law a bill (AB3351) that is principally aimed at regulating the cider and mead industries. One provision in the bill provides for a “farm winery license” (as distinguished from the “plenary winery license” for larger producers) which may be issued to certain manufacturers of fermented wines and fruit juices. That license is subject to certain requirements, one being “that for the first five years of the operation of the winery such fermented wines and fruit juices shall be manufactured from at least 51 percent grapes or fruit grown in the State and that thereafter they shall be manufactured from grapes or fruit grown in this State at least to the extent required for labeling as ‘New Jersey Wine’ under the applicable federal laws and regulations.” The fees for these licenses vary according to the level of production, and range from $63 to $375; the cost for a “plenary winery license” is $938.
