MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A bill that's up for a vote Tuesday would let minors take tours of Wisconsin wineries without their parents having to be with them.

The state Senate will vote on an exemption to a current law that requires anyone under 21 from being with a parent, guardian, or spouse on premises with retail alcohol sales.

Lawmakers of both parties sponsored a bill to let teens enter banquet and hospitality rooms at wineries alone, as long as they're part of tour groups.

A Senate panel unanimously endorsed the bill in January.
