(Olympia, WA)  --  A bill being considered in Olympia would allow the sale of wine in growlers at Washington state bars, liquor stores, and other wine retailers.  Currently, Washington only allows wine sales in refillable containers at a winery's tasting room.  The bill's sponsor, Moses Lake Senator Judy Warnick, tells KING-5 it would benefit wineries and the state's wine industry, and would encourage recycling.  One winemaker, Josh Stottlemyer, says he doesn't like the idea of others filling growlers with his wine because the winemaker loses control of the quality of the product.
