Outside wineries may be allowed to set up shop in Casper if city councilors approve certain proposed changes to the city’s municipal code.

Buffalo Jump Wines LLC, which is headquartered in Cody, is asking Casper City Council for a special permit so it can open and operate a satellite winery in Casper.

Casper mayor Kenyne Schlager says the proposed new permit may also be beneficial for outside vendors that want to operate within city limits for special events.

“What the benefit could be is having that ability to have a winery permit for special events or special functions,” Schlager said. “A good example is the Nic Fest that just happened – wineries can go off location and provide those services (there).”

Under the city’s current municipal code, the city of Casper currently isn’t allowed to issue satellite winery permits. Wyoming cities and towns, however, are allowed to issue satellite permits under state statute.

Council will discuss the proposed changes at a work session scheduled for Tuesday morning at 7:00 a.m.
