LANSING (WKZO) -- A new law in Michigan makes it possible for small winemakers to join the other agricultural producers at farmers markets in Michigan to offer wine tastings, and sell wine.

West Michigan State Senator John Proos, who has quite a few wineries in his district, co-sponsored the legislation. He says it will give local wineries exposure to more local consumers and tourists.

The winery has to produce less than 5-thousand gallons a year to be eligible for a Farmers Market Permit.
