The wine industry is heavily regulated and the legal issues can be complex. All in California who wish to make or sell wine must comply with numerous local, state and federal laws affecting every aspect of their business.
As an experienced attorney representing vineyards, wineries, restaurants, hotels, distributors and retailers, I can help you with the challenging legal landscape associated with the manufacture and sale of wine. Whether it be structuring your business; acquiring the location for your vineyard or winery; complying with zoning; complying with environmental laws; registering your business with the federal Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB); acquiring or transferring a license from California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC); registering your trademark; complying with wine bottle labeling laws; complying with regulations allowing you to sell your wine “direct-to-consumer” in your retail store, tasting room, or by mail/internet; or resolving disputes in courts or before government agencies, I have the knowledge and experience to handle your matter and handle it well.
