Excerpt from the Bill:
"…any restaurant licensed by the ABC Board may permit the consumption of lawfully acquired wine by bona fide customers on the premises in all areas and locations covered by the license. The bill provides that a licensee may charge a corkage fee to such customer for the wine so consumed; however, the licensee may not charge any other fee to such customer."

Megan Headley also shares some good advice on how to take advantage of our new corkage law graciously at Charlottesville News & Arts.
