§ 80. Wine tasting. 1. Except as otherwise provided for in this
chapter, any person licensed to sell wine pursuant to this article, or
section sixty-three or section seventy-nine of this chapter, shall be
permitted to conduct wine tastings only upon the licensed premises. Wine
tastings which are conducted under the auspices of an official agent of
a farm winery, winery, wholesaler, or importer and where such agent is
physically present at all times during the conduct of the tasting, then,
in that event, any liability stemming from a right of action resulting
from a wine tasting as authorized herein, and in accordance with the
provisions of sections 11-100 and 11-101 of the general obligations law,
shall accrue to the farm winery, winery, wholesaler, or importer.

2. In addition to such other wine tastings permitted under this
chapter, licensed farm wineries, wineries, and wine wholesalers may
apply for a permit, pursuant to paragraph k of subdivision one of
section ninety-nine-b of this chapter, to conduct wine tastings. Such
permits shall be valid throughout the state and may be issued on an
annual basis or for individual events. Each such permit and the exercise
of the privilege granted thereby shall be subject to such rules of the
liquor authority as it deems necessary.
