How do I get a license to sell my homemade wine?

Asked by rodydoe89 (356 points ) July 27th, 2011

I live in Alabama. I do not own a store in which I wish to sell my homemade wine. I want to have local wine stores sell my homemade wine for me. What kind of licenses and permits do I need in order to do this? Do I need any kind of permit from the local health department?

You need at the least, federal and state licenses, and, depending on where you live, city or township licenses. When my homebrewing husband looked into this for his own dream-fulfillment purposes, he found it was far too expensive for a small-time home-scale vintner to manage, but we live in Michigan, not Alabama. Good luck. The biz is certainly tilted to the Big Boys.
