Producer / Wholesale Operators
Producer/wholesaler licences apply to wine producers, brewers, distillers, and wholesalers. The liquor license allows wholesalers to sell to other liquor licensees. For wine producers, the liquor license also allows tastings (with a charge if desired), cellar door sales, direct sales to the public at wine shows and farmers’ (producer) markets, and the operation of multiple premises in an area. Consumption on the premises as part of a restaurant, motel, vineyard event etc is permitted where a drink on-premises authorisation has been approved. For small scale regional brewers and distillers, the licence also allows tastings and retail sales in bottles at the licensed premises.
