41-306a. Wine distributor's license; rights of licensee. A wine distributor's license shall allow:
(a) The wholesale purchase, importation and storage of wine, but all wine so purchased or imported which is manufactured in the United States shall be purchased from the primary American source of supply or from another licensed wine distributor, except that a licensed wine distributor may purchase confiscated wine at a sheriff's sale.
(b) The sale of wine to:
(1) Wine distributors licensed in this state;
(2) retailers licensed in this state, except that such distributor shall sell a brand of wine only to those retailers whose licensed premises are located in the geographic territory within which such distributor is authorized to sell such brand, as designated in the notice or notices filed with the director pursuant to K.S.A. 41-410, and amendments thereto; and
(3) such persons located outside such territory or outside this state as permitted by law.
(c) The sale of wine, but only in barrels, casks and other bulk containers, to:
(1) Licensed caterers; and
(2) public venues, clubs and drinking establishments licensed in this state, except that such distributor shall sell a brand of wine only to such public venues, clubs and drinking establishments the licensed premises of which are located in the geographic territory within which such distributor is authorized to sell such brand, as designated in the notice or notices filed with the director pursuant to K.S.A. 41-410, and amendments thereto.
(d) The purchase of wine in barrels, casks or other bulk containers and the bottling thereof before resale, but all bottles or containers filled with such wine shall be sealed, labeled and otherwise made to comply with all laws and rules and regulations governing the preparation and bottling of wine by manufacturers and with all federal rules, regulations and laws.
(e) The storage and delivery to a retailer licensed under the Kansas liquor control act or a retailer licensed under K.S.A. 41-2702, and amendments thereto, on the distributor's licensed premises, of alcoholic liquor or cereal malt beverage of another licensed distributor authorized by law to sell such alcoholic liquor or cereal malt beverage to such retailer, in accordance with an agreement entered into with such other distributor and approved by the director.
(f) The withdrawal of wine from such licensee's inventory for use as samples in the course of the business of the distributor or at industry seminars. Samples may only be provided to persons licensed as a distributor or a retailer under the Kansas liquor control act, and such person's employees, or to persons licensed under the club and drinking establishment act, and such person's employees. Samples may be served on the licensed premises of the licensee, or on the premises of a licensed retailer, provided no sample shall be served on that portion of the premises of a licensed retailer that is open to the public and where sales of alcoholic liquor at retail are made. Samples may be served on the premises of a licensee holding a license issued under the club and drinking establishment act, provided no sample shall be served on that portion of the premises that is open to the public and where sales of alcoholic liquor are made. No sample shall be provided to any minor. Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to permit the licensee to sell any alcoholic liquor for consumption on the premises. The withdrawal of wine shall be subject to the tax imposed by K.S.A. 79-4101 et seq., and amendments thereto, based on the applicable current posted bottle or case price. For purposes of providing samples pursuant to this subsection other than at industry seminars or to the licensee's employees, the term "sample" shall have the same meaning as that term is defined in K.S.A. 41-2601, and amendments thereto.
(g) This section shall be part of and supplemental to the Kansas liquor control act.
