Opening a wine shop in PA?

Hello- I was most appreciative to discover your post entitled; “Pennsylvania Wine Law Primer.” I recently moved to PA and had no idea. My wife is interested in opening a small, tasteful wine shop in Easton. I am wondering if its even possible. I have been having a hard time determining what licensees or permits would be needed, much less how to obtain them. If anyone knows someone who has managed to do this or could point me in the right direction, or provide any useful information then I’d be much obliged. Cheers.

J,

Before jumping into the deep end, I’d strongly suggest taking a step back. Your wife would need to have solid credentials and a detailed knowledge of the local wine trade before opening a wine shop. Otherwise, the chance of failure is very (very) high. As a rule, most people have at least their Advanced Somm certification and a few years working in the local wine trade before putting out their own shingle.

Cheers,

Keith
