METHODOLOGY:

This bill allows each of the State's 34 wine manufacturers to operate one retail outlet for both samples and retail sales of their own wine apart from their manufacturing facility subject to a $216 annual fee.  The bill sets no limit on the volume of retail sales that may occur at the additional tasting rooms.  The New Hampshire Liquor Commission states this bill will reduce state revenue by an indeterminable amount.  In FY 2016 New Hampshire wine manufacturers produced about 45,000 9 liter cases of wine and the Liquor Commission sold 5,319 of these cases for an estimated net profit of about $217,000 (5,319 cases * $177.37 average retail sale price * 23 percent profit margin).  To the extent wine manufacturers open retail outlets and wine is sold from a retail outlet rather than from a Liquor Commission store, state revenue will decrease.  The Commission is unable to estimate the net impact of this bill on sales.  There are currently 34 licensed wine manufactures in the State.  The Commission assumes 16 of the State's wine manufacturers will chose to open a retail outlet and pay the $216 fee which would increase state revenue by $3,456 (16*$216) annually.
