Because of liquor violations, Les Bourgeois Vineyards in Rocheport will be unable to sell wine at its A-Frame facility from Aug. 27 through Sept. 11.
The suspension was handed down after Les Bourgeois was found to have sold alcohol to minors and to have allowed them to consume alcohol on the property, according to the Missouri Division of Liquor Control. The 15-day suspension is the establishment’s second of the year; the first was from June 16 to June 30.
Steve Shimmens, chief of enforcement with the Division of Liquor Control, stressed that the department does not target certain establishments. “We work off complaints,” he said, “and go to the places they’re at.”
The suspension does not include wine sales at Les Bourgeois’ Bistro or gift shop, but does prohibit wine consumption at the A-Frame.
