(1) Domestic wineries may purchase and receive under federal bond from any holder of a domestic winery license, holder of the fruit and/or wine distillery license provided in RCW 66.24.140, or out-of-state holder of a federal winery or fruit distillery basic permit, bulk wine, brandy or bulk wine spirits manufactured or produced by such holder, and use the same in the manufacture or production of wines: Provided, That every domestic winery which imports wine, brandy or wine spirits manufactured outside the state of Washington for use as authorized in this section must first be in possession of a permit issued by the board, in accordance with RCW 66.20.010(5) of the Washington State Liquor Act. Applications for such permits must be submitted to the board in writing.

Wine manufactured or produced from one kind of fruit or berry may not receive wine, brandy or wine spirits manufactured or produced from another kind of fruit or berry. Such brandy or wine spirits so purchased shall be used exclusively and only for the purpose of adding wine spirits to wines. In those cases where the holder of a domestic winery license shall also hold such fruit and/or wine distillery license, then, and in such cases, such domestic winery may use brandy or wine spirits manufactured or produced under such distillery license as a wine spirits addition in the manufacture or production of wine by such holder of the domestic winery license.

One copy of the bill of lading covering such sale and shipment to a domestic winery is to be forwarded to the board by the shipping winery or fruit distillery, at the time of such shipment. (3) A domestic winery may ship Washington wine out of and may return such wine to Washington state for ultimate sale. The following conditions apply: (a) The wine is produced and bottled in Washington by a licensed winery. (b) The export shall be from the licensed winery and returned to the same entity, a licensed wine distributor or bonded wine warehouse. (c) The returned wine must not have been altered in any way, with the exception of sparkling wine. (d) A domestic winery, a licensed wine distributor, or bonded wine warehouse directly receiving previously exported Washington wine must comply with tax collection and tracking requirements initiated by the liquor control board.
