An oenophile friend bought a place near Zillah to grow grapes and make their own wine. Is it legal for them to give some to us?
It appears the answer is no:
Here are the rules, from Washington Revised Code Title 66, Chapter 66.12, §66.12.010:
- An adult member of a household may remove family wine from the home for exhibition or use at organized wine tastings or competitions, subject to the following conditions:
(a) The quantity removed by a producer for these purposes is limited to a quantity not exceeding one gallon;
(b) Family wine is not removed for sale or for the use of any person other than the producer.
