Subject: A CALL TO CHANGE CALIFORNIA ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE CONTROL RULES & REGULATIONS FOR CABC LICENSE TYPE 17/20 WINE PRODUCERS
My name is John Olney, founder of The Wine Country Club (www.thewinecntryclub.blogspot.com/ } which has been designing plans to eventually sell wine under its own label to its wine club members (in development) and the wine consumer in general.
I am writing to you to seek your opinion about, and possible support for, changing the California legislative acts that limit the marketing and sales opportunities of CABC Type 17/20 licenses holders to reaching the consumer by Internet only while allowing CABC Type 2 licenses holder’s almost unlimited access to the consumer.
We have written select Type 17/20 license holders and asked for their support to advocate for changes to the existing laws and subsequent rules & regulations. We received one response that suggested we contact you as it was mentioned that you might be in favor of seeing changes made to these laws, etc. We would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and discuss our issues.
We have also asked these Type 17/20 license holders to consider joining with us in forming a trade association (TA) which will hopefully include all CABC Type 17/20 wine producers, customer crush houses and the general wine consumers. This trade association would advocate for a change to the existing legislation, and rules & regulations. Additionally this TA would represent a collective platform by which to market all CABC Type 17/20 license holder members in a fashion similar to other existing wine-related trade associations featuring the CABC Type 2 license holders.
You can review our research and conclusions by opening our blog site at www.thewinecntryclub.blogspot.com/ under the first narrative comments.
