Farm Beat: Bill would allow wine tasting at farmers markets

Farmers market customers in California can sample a cherry here, a piece of cheese there, perhaps a few almonds the next booth over. But if they sample wine, they are breaking the law. A measure in the state Legislature would change that, in a limited way. Assembly Bill 2488 would allow tastings by wineries that produce less than 12,000 cases each year and use only their own grapes.
