WA winemakers and producers can now enjoy greater exposure as the Liberal National Government cut red tape across the industry.
Liquor regulations have recently been announced by Racing and Gaming Minister Brendon Grylls to allow businesses to sell wine online without having a physical storefront. This new regulation also means geographical restrictions on farmers markets across the State have been abolished.
Mr Grylls said the amendment allows for the growing consumer need to be catered for, as well as increasing exposure for local producers who may not have a retail presence.
An additional change sees the amount of liquor able to be sold to a customer at a farmers market increase from 2.5 litres to nine litres. The lack of geographical restriction also means winemakers can travel all across the state to sell their wines, not just in agricultural regions or by producer’s associations.
