MADISON, Wis. (AP) - New guidance from the Wisconsin Department of Revenue may end Reedsburg’s popular wine walk and other similar events statewide.

The wine walks are typically fundraisers for sponsoring organizations. Retailers that usually don’t offer food or beverages serve glasses of wine to participants.

The Reedsburg Revitalization Organization has operated past wine walks with a temporary Class B permit issued by the Common Council. The State Journal (http://bit.ly/1FTgUVH ) reports the state’s new edition of regulations for retailers indicates that would be prohibited under laws on public alcohol sales.

Reedsburg administrator Ken Witt says it will put an end to the wine walks, which are the revitalization organization’s biggest annual fundraiser.
