Wisconsin Senate to consider allowing minors in wineries

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Unaccompanied minors may soon be allowed to enter wineries alone if they plan to take a tour. The full Senate is set to take up the measure on Tuesday.

The state law that is currently in place prohibits anyone under the age of 21 from being on the premises of an establishment with a retail alcohol sales license, without a parent, guardian, or spouse.

The bipartisan bill that is set to pass will allow under-agers to enter alone, if they're participating in a tour of the establishment.
