  • Willisburg winery seeks Sunday sales

     

    After winning a 2007 battle for the right to sell package wines and host wine tastings at their Horseshoe Bend Vineyard and Winery in Willisburg, Bob and Ann Karsner are now seeking another legal change. They want to be able to sell wine on Sundays.
    Currently, Sunday sales are not legal in any part of Washington County. That means alcohol can be sold in some, but not all parts, of the county. The only two areas in which alcohol can be sold are the Springfield city limits, and Willisburg.
