Universal Citation: AL Code § 28-3A-20.1 (2018)
Section 28-3A-20.1Removal of resealed bottle of wine from premises of licensee.

Notwithstanding any provision of this chapter to the contrary, a person holding a license to sell alcoholic beverages for consumption on the licensed premises may permit a customer to remove one unsealed bottle of wine for consumption off the premises if the customer has purchased and consumed a portion of the bottle of wine on the licensed premises. The licensee or the licensee's agent shall either: (1) recork the bottle of wine with the original or similar type cork that is reinserted in the bottle and the cork can only be removed by a corkscrew or similar device; or (2) securely reseal the bottle in a bag designed so that it is visibly apparent that the resealed bottle of wine has not been tampered with and shall provide a dated receipt for the resealed bottle of wine to the customer. A wine bottle recorked or resealed pursuant to the requirements of this section is otherwise subject to the requirements of Section 32-5A-330 as further provided herein. The recorked or resealed bottle of wine, if transported in a motor vehicle, shall be placed in a locked trunk; in a storage or luggage compartment; in a locked glove compartment; in a storage or cargo compartment in the bed of a pickup truck or in a locked case placed in an area not readily accessible behind the front seat of a pickup truck if the truck has no trunk or separate enclosed area other than the truck cab; or in the area behind the last upright seat of a motor vehicle which is not equipped with a trunk.
