A new law, which will allow restaurant patrons to take home a partially consumed bottle of wine providing they consumed a full course meal, takes effect on Thursday, September 9 th.

The law, which was sponsored by state Senator Stephen Saland of Poughkeepsie, applies only to establishments that have either a state restaurant license or a wine license.

A partially consumed bottle of wine may be removed from a licensed restaurant establishment only if the bottle of wine was actually purchased in connection with a full course meal, and only if a portion of the wine contained in the bottle was actually consumed with the meal, according to state regulations just issued.

Only one partially consumed bottle of wine may be removed from the restaurant.
