Winery hopes to win right for Sunday sales

Posted: Updated:

LONE OAK, Ky. (AP) - The owners of a local, small farm winery say they're ready to let voters decide their hours of operation.

Purple Toad Winery owner Allen Dossey is pushing for a vote under a new law that allows voters in Lone Oak to choose whether alcohol sales would be permitted on Sundays.

McCracken County Commissioners have shot down the idea twice. A local option vote would allow the winery to bypass the commission.

Right now, Purple Toad can sell wine and beer Monday through Saturday.

Dossey told WPSD-TV in Paducah (bit.ly/1mT2SuB) that not having Sunday sales is hurting business because weekend visitors can't shop at the winery.
